The only one that looks hopelessly unbalanced to me is Reyes for Cabrera and Lowe. Do you have any indication that there was collusion in these trades? Are his trading partners at the bottom of the standings?

Personally, I see no reason to complain unless you suspect actual foul play. It's not illegal to rip someone off in a trade.

yes most of them are collusion, i have often asked people to trade and then they have told me that they dont care about the league and don't want to trade, they then end up trading the players i specifically asked for to him, he then claims that every trade is fair because the other kid wanted to do them who already told me that they don't care about their team so there is no reason they actually want to do these trades

I don't know. Most of these trades seem alright to me. There are maybe 3 or 4 that I would personally veto...
