Should this trade be overturned?

Postby bookiebob » Thu Jun 02, 2011 8:10 am

11 team, 5x5, NL-only, keeper

1st place team loses Buster Posey $10 because of injury.

1st place team then trades injured Posey $10 and Brandon Wood $10
to last place team for Ryan Howard $44 and injured David Freese $7.

Last place team has obviously given up on 2011, but doesn't this trade seem a little out of whack? I'd say there was collusion, but these two owners don't really know each other.

The last place team does run his team in a very strange way, and is usually at the bottom of the league.

Do we protest the trade, or let it stand?

That's the problem with keeper leagues, you get these silly trades. Posey as a keeper at $10 is fairly valuable, but since its still pretty early in the year, I find it kinda strange.

Looks like a move for the 1st place team to stay in first and the last place team to get in cheap on a good keeper for next year. Don't see a dispute.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.

I agree. In a keeper league I don't really see anything wrong with that trade. I'm not saying I would make that deal for Posey, but I can see why someone might.
