Term for trades when...

Postby Eddy » Wed Mar 21, 2012 6:39 am

It'd be neat to have a term for when you pull off a trade that you know you're winning out on, and you get away with it. Then that feeling of guilty satisfaction washes over you and you get a crazed look in your eyes.

Or is that just me?

Hmm... Maybe, open to suggestions...

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.

That is just a razztastic trade when the other guy over values a player we don't. I think a better post trade nickname would be for an injury that happens right after a trade. Does that go under Murphy's law?

I thought Daniel Murphy's law was all Mets prospects are doomed to failure.
I like sports with balls in them.

Nah, Daniel Murphy's law states that fringe players on badly managed teams display an inverse relationship between their quality of play and their number of at bats. See also David Murphy.
