Is there a point at which you should stop trying to make your team better?
I'm afraid the competitive balance may have been ruined in my favorite league this year. It's a money league and only an 8 teamer (so everyone's team is pretty stacked). Via few trades and a good draft a team has reached a state far beyond anyone else's in my league and even with it being as early as it is in the season they've already created large gap between themselves and the rest of the field.
I'm not trying to suggest that this team is untouchable and couldn't be drailed by injuries or some prolonged slumps. But I would very much like to have a fun time in this league. Nobody likes a runaway and I'm afraid it could drive teams away and reduce the activity level of the league overall (which has been outstanding to this point).
Maybe it's not as good as I think. The pitching has been great but is nothing incredible and they'll have to drop someone (probably Sheff) to get Rollins off the DL. But overall his offense is pretty rediculous.
What do you guys think? Should we ask this owner help out a struggling team by knowing giving them a good deal and making his team worse? So that we could all have more fun in the league this year.
