We're in the fifth year of our 12-teamer. It's a very competitive non-keeper CBS points league. I have been making a ton of pick-ups and trades and have built myself a nice little powerhouse. I am the only one that has successfully made trades, a total of eight now. I know what these guys like (Red Sox fans, Yankee fans, etc.) and I sell-high, buy-low etc. from time to time. Here's the previous trades:
1. 5/5 Asdrubal Cabrera and Tim Hudson for Jose Reyes : GUY I KNOW FROM THE DRAFT
2. 5/8 Jair Jurrjens for Wandy Rodriguez and Joakim Soria : FRIEND
3. 5/11 Jake Arrieta for John Danks : FRIEND
4. 6/10 Aaron Hill for Carlos Beltran : FRIEND
5. 6/11 Jhonny Peralta for Chad Billingsley : FRIEND
6. 6/23 Jed Lowrie, Nick Markakis, Andrew Miller and Ryan Vogelsong for Carlos Gonzalez : FRIEND
7. 6/26 Jon Lester and Carlos Beltran for Tim Lincecum : GUY I KNOW FROM THE DRAFT
This last one has leaguers up-in-arms:
8. 8/4 Chad Billingsley and Daniel Murphy for Tommy Hanson and Sam Fuld (who I dropped) : FRIEND
I discussed the Hanson deal with the owner over beers and offered him much more and he came back with trade #8 which he liked. The commish and a few players were especially upset about this one and have gotten increasingly annoyed with my wheeling and dealing.
What should I do?
