Collusion

Postby yogi2599 » Tue Aug 10, 2004 6:20 pm

Last place team 36.5 games out trading A Soriano,D Ortiz,J Posada and J Schmidt to third place team 12 games out for S Green,B Roberts,J Estrada and D Lowe. This has got to be the worst trade ever.Looks like collusion to me,give me your opinions.

Yeah, something seems fishy there. Is it a keeper, and if yes, then are there any special keeper rules?

Talk to the last place guy about why he wanted to make that trade? I can almost guarantee that is collusion, and unless there are wacky keeper rules or a uninformed and strongly opinionated last place manager than that trade needs to be vetoed.

I know this isn't the point. For the record, I agree, collusion-- bad, bad.
However:
How did this team with Sori, Ortiz, Posada and Schmidt end up in last place?!

I am against vetos in nearly all cases, but this definitely seems like collusion.

I'd ask for explanations, and unless there is something remotely true, I'd veto it.
I'm back. Sorta.

Just more evidence that early trade deadlines are a good thing.
