Biggest Steal?

Postby Beane Disciple » Fri May 08, 2009 5:59 pm

Alright so I have overwhelmed my league-mates with a barrage of trades this season so far. Miraculously they turned down the ones where I thought I was giving up too much and accepted the ones I thought were ridiculous.

Today, upon the advice of Grey, I offer up Brian Wilson for B.J. Upton. My question is which of these trades that I made recently is the most outrageous:

1. Give up: Brian Wilson, Get: B.J. Upton

2. Give up: Manny Ramirez, Get: Grady Sizemore (this beauty finalized the BEFORE the steroids scandal

3. Give Up: Brian McCann and J.D. Drew, Get: Curtis Granderson (finalized the day BEFORE McCann went on the DL for eye problems)

P.S. this is not me trying to say that I am smart but more lucky.

Wow, those are insane. You traded Wilson for Upton? I kinda wonder if maybe you need tougher leaguemates.

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.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
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 don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.

Free public league? or short bus league?

you shouldn't be proud of those. Anyone can win a league by ripping off managers who clearly don't know anything.

In my league someone just got Rollins and McLouth for Ellsbury, Theriot and Morrow...puke.
