If you are going to criticize what I said, at least do that. Don't make up something and then respond to it. I said when a trade upsets the competitive balance. Only a complete fool or someone who has an axe to grind as in the case of Davus would assume it means what the two of you have said it does. It means exactly what it is. Upsetting the competitive balance, you know, like trading a person you pick up off the waiver wire for a top twenty player. Or trading, say, Homer Bush to get ARod. That is what is referred to as upsettiing the competitive balance. Which pretty much a person with at least average intelligence could understand.

If you can't handle people disagreeing with you without being a jerk, it's no wonder the guy in your league has a problem with you. I'm not going to bother with you anymore. Interacting with trolls is a waste of time and that is all you have shown yourself to be. Have a nice life.
SouthBronxBombers wrote:I am going to reply once more. I'd suggest you invest in a dictionary and look up the word collusion. Trading Homer Bush for ARod would not fit the definition unless the owners got together and entered into a plan to better one team at the expense of the other. The trade itself is not collusion. Nor did I mention the name of Garrett Anderson anywhere. I have never said he was a top 20 player. I have no problem with teams making good trades that benefit them, no matter where they are in the standings. My statement was clear, and you chose to make it something it was not because you cannot handle being told you were wrong on another thread. But you go right ahead, spout your lies, be a troll and generally show your ass. No skin off my nose. It's not like you have anything intelligent to offer, so ignoring you from now on will not cost me anything. GFY

To stand by and let opportunistic owners take advantage of them is complete and total bullsh1t. If an owner is inexperienced, naive or just plain stupid, it's the commissioner's responsibility to make sure he's not taken advantage of. Right now Dellucci is ranked considerably higher than Vlad. Are you telling me you would let that trade go through? Being an opportunist is below most people. To have a veto system that rewards opportunists and penalizes owners that have a sense of fairplay is unconscionable... especially when there is money involved.
What kind of person wants to win that way?
