I'm sure some guys were saying the same thing about me the first year I played fantasy baseball. I was never sure if I was getting ripped off or not. Sounds like whoever's running the Reds is a novice.
Hmmm... Makes me wonder about this other owner in my keeper league even though he's apparently a longtime regular on this site.
I really can't understand why an owner would claim to want to trade (and even makes the most posts on the message board saying he wants a trade), but otherwise, seems to do utterly zilch except hit the reject button and offer zero suggestions for counteroffers. Last time he posted asking for a trade, I decided to just post a reply asking him to make me an offer instead -- and predictably, I didn't receive any offers from him, not even a lopsided one. And it's not like I've got nothing worthwhile on my roster either.
Anyway, enough of my rant...
I'm glad enough that Dunn's staying put and gets to take further advantage of that bandbox in Cincy although a trade to Houston (plus a long term deal) would've been awesome for me as I get to keep him as long as he stays out of free agency -- and he's basically a top 10-15 bat in our league, trailing only MCab in LF so far this year and holds his own against any 1B not named Pujols (and this year's edition of D Lee).
