Article Submission - The Politics Of Trading

Postby BCGrindrod » Sat Apr 09, 2005 1:11 pm

True story. Swear to God.

He proposed his Magglio Ordonez and Mike Cameron


my Ichiro Suzuki.

Other horror stories of note;

A GM proposed his L. Hawkins/D. Baez for my Israunghausen/Borowski

Another freak went with this one


A. Rowand
P. Lo Duca
Ja. Wright (NYY - SP)

for my

B. Bonds (SF - OF)
R. Halladay (Tor - SP)
T. Gordon (NYY - RP)

Am I the only one who gets bombarded with these insulting offers?

If not, I would like to submit an article that could be a guide line for these moron GMs who think you are all dumb enough to trade your marquee players for magic beans.

More importantly, it would be a guide line on how to appropriately respond to GMs who love to insult your intelligence.

Could this be a subject that would interest our readers?

The 3rd one is pretty bad, but the other two are fairly common. See those kinds of offers all the time. Just click "reject" or make a counter offer. I've found a lot of the times, that's just an initial offer for who they want and a deal can be reached after a few counteroffers. :-°
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
