I came across this today on CBS and haven't stopped laughing since. So it got me thinking. What was your worst trade ever? Fantasy of course. And Moderator's ...please if you see this guy, Scott is his name can we please ban him..
"Scott, Texas: I'm in a 12-team, 5x5, Head-to-Head league and have Sammy Sosa, Lance Berkman, Albert Pujols , Carlos Beltran and Torii Hunter as my outfielders. However, after the draft, I realized I hadn't picked any closers, and since I had a surplus of outfielders, I traded Berkman, Sosa, and Pujols for Jose Jimenez, Jay Witasick, Scott Stewart and Richard Hidalgo. I think it was a brilliant trade on my part but everyone else in the league keeps saying it was a stupid trade. Could you please prove them wrong?
"Awnser: Unfortunately, you got swindled. The three outfielders you traded are among the best players in all of Fantasy Baseball. And in exchange, you got three potential closers with major question marks, plus an injury-prone outfielder. In fact, Witasick might not even be the Padres' leading option for saves. The lesson here is never to make a hasty deal from strength to patch a glaring hole until you carefully consider the impact." source: cbs sportline
