Smells fishy to me also. I would definitely question it.

Gave: Rolen and Jeter
Got: Hudson, Barmes and Pierre
Gave: Miguel Cabrera
Got: Bonds and Nathan
Gave: Edmonds and Clement
Got: Preston Wilson and Josh Beckett
Gave: Pierre and Beckett
Got: Cabrera and Isringhausen
Gave: Cabrera and Blalock
Got: A-Rod and Burrell
Gave: A-Rod and Berkman

Gave: Sweeney, Bonds, Baez and Radke
Got: Teixeira, Encarnacion, Hoffman and Chacin
Gave: Wright, Burrell and Schmidt
Got: Edmonds and Blalock
He did all of these trades with 4 other teams, on top of my trades. It's obvious he likes to trade, and why can't I take advantage of that? Believe me, they know we're not colluding. We're all close friends and we live together, so there's none of that going on. They're just saying that I'm intentionally decieving him and ripping him off.
I'm not the only manager that has made multiple big name trades with him. He's done it at least once with most of the other guys in the league.
Am I out of line here?
