re: SBL 2013 Spring Training (Keepers 3/17, Slow Draft to follow)


I don't think half of rondos team is keepers. Doesn't mean they should be given away to someone.

i don't care who the player is, just the principal of it happening. There's no gamesmanship from either side. You get a player for nothing and he gets nothing for it. If you're happy with getting a free player and vkc is happy with getting nothing then by all means go for it. Just thought I wouldn't see something like that with you guys.

Put it up for a vote. There's obviously people who think its crooked, and I wouldn't want my ethics coming into question...

I didn't question your ethics. I already said I know y'all had no ill intentions with it. I did say it was borderline collusion, keyword borderline, because that deal would be questioned in the regular season.

And I don't care about voting. I just wanted to cut off the hunky dory gee golly ill give you a player for free bull shite before it becomes a common occurrence. Rondo was already licking his chops

I am sorry that you disagreed with the principle of it, and I will not do it again.

I made an offer to everyone that if they wanted Beachy or Perez (who I do not view as keepers), then to send me a pick for them.

I basically treated it like one of these pay what you want restaurants. I told Lou to offer me whatever and I would accept it. We did exactly that.

My logic was that I was moved up around 40 spots with this pick even if it was on the tail end of the draft. I was losing nothing. To me, a trade should benefit both sides. I think it achieved that end. Furthermore, now Youkilis will probably be entered back into the draft (who I like a lot more than Perez) and I can maybe attempt to draft him.

If you guys see it as bull shite or whatever, then I think the other 12 owners (not Lou or I) should handle the situation. FWIW, I am fine with what I got in the trade and personally do not see it as collusion, but it is totally up to you.

I would not do that in the regular season FWIW. I am not sure if that makes a difference in your opinion.

The reason it appears to be "borderline collusion" is because its the closest thing to you actually dropping a guy you aren't keeping and Louie picking him up in the FA pool to keep.

This is essentially just a welfare trade.

Yeah that's what I'm saying.

It's all good, I just don't think that should become a common practice in the league. I have guys like Swisher Stubbs Willingham etc that I want to get rid of but I'm not going to give them away to a competitor
