Should I as Commish Let this trade go through?!?!

I don't like it, but seriosuly, not that bad. I swear people see AROD and they go nuts. Then they think about what they both: would have paid to get him, or what they would demand for him if they had him.

Either case is irrelevant. As long as it isn't conclusive collusion, there is no reason. There is enough of a case to be made for it that it has to stand. Any reasonable case, even if it is one you don't agree with, is reason enough to let it go through.

At some point, if everything is going to be straight down the middle, why have trades at all?

A fool and his money are soon parted. "League Balance" is jsut a buzzword imo from people who rest on their laurels. This guy struck and got arod, good for him. Next time, be more active with ballpark offers... Leagues shouldn't be artifically balanced. In a perfect world they woudl be balanced naturally through sharp owners. But we all know that some people are wiser, more patient, better at valuing players, you name it. A league has to have heros and goats -- the real one does.

IS THIS LOPSIDED?

Postby KULCAT » Tue Apr 20, 2004 7:56 am

KEEPER LEAGUE/FANTASY POINTS WITH OLD SANDBOX SYSTEM

TEAM A GETS
BONDS AND HILLEBRAND

TEAM B GETS
BRIAN GILES AND MORGAN ENSBERG

Basically is a 2 for 1. Hillebrand was team B starting 3b. Team A already had Cintron at 3b.

People in the league are saying that this trade is too lopsided and they are actually called it collusion wich since the trade was done has been proved as false.

Personally i dont think is lopsided, especially because this is a keeper league and Ensberg, i believe, will start hitting and move up in the lineup making him a big upgrade over Hillebrand. What do you guys think?
