So again , my question is "if player in your league announced in your league at start of year that he was only trading with one player-- wouldnt you consider that blatant collusion?"
Sorry my writing style offends you Conner, but last time I checked abbreviations and brevity were the norm on web forums.

If it looks like a duck ,sounds like a duck then its a duck! He even says other guy badgers him endlessly till he trades with him.

Last year, I was in an AL-only league that has no veto or anything. Well, I traded Magglio Ordonez(remember him?) and Pudge Rodriguez for Carl Crawford and Joe Nathan. Everybody in the league said that was the stupidest trade they had ever seen, and that I didn't get enough back. However, here is where this story becomes pertinent to your league. As you know, Maggs went on to miss a substantial amount of time, and although Pudge had an excellent year, I ended up gaining an elite closer in Nathan, and a guy who stole 55 bases and hit .300
So the question you have to ask yourself is....does your league overvalue players based on reputation? I realize this trade looks ridiculous, but in baseball, the value of a trade cannot be fully determined until the games are played. What if Milton goes and blows up and gets suspended for 10-20 games? What if Blaylock gets injured? These ???s are realities that exist in the game, and should be accounted for as well as the players "perceived" value....
