Two teams in my league are complaing about tampering. Supposedly, they are trying to make trades with two other teams in the league and are constantly getting rejected and they feel this is because the owners of these teams consult with another owner.
So the Rangers offer the Angels a trade
The Angels call the Mariners and ask for advice
The Mariners tell the the Angels not to make the trade
The Rangers are pissed because had the Mariners not interfered in their business the trade might have gone through.
Now, I'm all for advising. I've requested advice in this and other forums a bunch of times. But, I don't know any of you personally, and as I far as I know, none of you are in any of my leagues.
These guys are in the same league, and while the Angels may trust the Mariners there's no way of telling that Mariners aren't looking out for themselves.
I've verified this is happening. I asked the two teams if they were getting help from other managers (pickups, drops). They are.
I don't know. I'm stumped. Not like I can do anything about this.
