Stupid Trades

Postby Zwei » Wed Jun 29, 2011 1:37 pm

There ought to be a term for when someone in your league makes a stupid trade, but not one stupid enough that you suspect collusion so you can't veto. For example, in my 12-team keeper league (keep 12), the dude in 10th place traded Ryan Howard to the guy in first for Billy Butler, Brett Lawrie, and a first round draft pick next year.

I can't think of anything pithy and concise, but it's like he traded his Lunchables for some carrot sticks. Ugh.

That trade makes sense because of the first rounder for next year for a last place team. Other than it is a month early...

Yeah, but because everyone keeps 12 guys, he's essentially getting a 13th round pick out of it. Ryan Howard's worth more than that.

yea, stupid trade. Funny our league the guy in last dealt Werth and Espinosa for Butler and Minor. You have 2 very happy owners to dump butler. The guy's a freaking DH and hits like a weak middle infielder. What a joke.
