I don't think that you can really even prevent this from happening without eliminating the rental trades. I think that you have to allow rental trades, makes the game more interesting.

2005: Team A gives Piazza, Beltran and Prior
Team B gives Langerhans and Niekro
2006 (pre-season): Team A gives D. Navarro
Team B gives Piazza, Beltran Prior and Abreu
If you do not nip this in the bud, very shortly you will have people basically exchanging teams so that one of them can win one year and the other can win the next (and this is clearly collusion). If you enact a rule like this, make certain that you include a provision accounting for "substitute" return players (i.e., in the example above, Team B giving M-Cab, Thome and Shcmidt in 2006 instead of Piazza, Beltran and Prior).
Ever since we enacted this rule (and explained the policy behind it), we have not had any problems. If the people in your league are even remotely reasonable, I think they will see why trade arrangements of this type should be discouraged.
