Thats foolish, but there's nothing wrong with it. Im betting the owners that got angry were the ones that didnt benifit from any of his trades. Obviously there werent many angry owners. Otherwise they could have vetoed his trades.
Vetos are the best way to stop these trades.
However, the owner made a big mistake by trading for prospects so early. Its impossible to know who the good prospects are so early in the season. He should have waited.
I see no problem if a person trades all thier current talent for prospects. The only thing I can see wrong with it is if they purposefully work with one person and give their studs to them for their prospects and only theirs.Tribe-Fan wrote:CubsFan7724 wrote:This isn't dumping, he just mortgaged for the future.

Actually in fantasy circles this is called dumping. There is no definition for dropping all your players because other then the free leagues where you are playing with strangers it does not happen.
Many leagues have early dumping rules as it can screw with the balance of a league.
I have seen some leagues assign a "class" to a player, and then before a certian date, usually the all-star break, an equal class player has to be in the other side of the deal. For example, you could call Clemens an "A" class player, and before the all-star break if Clemens is involved in a trade another class "A" player has to be returned in the deal.
Clemens was just an example, don't drill me for calling him class A, but I wanted to pick an obvious older stud-type player one would deal for prospects in a keeper.
It is similar to how free agents are graded in order to determine compensation if they sign somewhere else. Pick a trusted media source with dollar values and determine your class list pre-season, something like $30+ players are A, $20-$29 are B, $10-19 are C, etc. It is easier then it sounds and it works.
