    I feel like off season trades should just go through. We don't need to vote. Just a thought. No one cares who swaps what for who, right?

    I'm also a bit surprised anyone pulled off a deal. Seems like everyone was looking to do the same exact thing. Package two guys to trade up. Problem is no one was looking for the opposite.

    mosy people were looking to package two keepers and trade up for one bigger keeper. Or a guy they liked better, or perhaps a better round. Problem is it seems almost everyone had "extra" keepers so one for ones didn't really work out. It solved neither's problems. If you look at everyone's post when they first declared keepers nearly everyone said the same thing. "Looking to package x and y for whatever".

    I don't know if that makes sense.

    Minor league trades are a different story. Some people just like guys more than others so they trade. Or maybe someone is light on pitching prospects or something.

    It comes down to people trying to take advantage of assets while they still have control of them.

    Better to attempt to move two assets for a better player before the keeper deadline when you'd have to drop one of the two lesser assets for nothing.

    Due diligence.

    I understand the logic. And it makes sense. The problem is everyone understands it, and most had the same goal in mind. Which means no one matches up for a good trade. I don't think anyone declared they were looking for more keepers.
