We’ll continue our look at the ten fantasy baseball trade hounds you may or may not want to find yourself in negotiations with this season. Every league has that dude that sends you a low-ball offer for Mike Trout, or maybe worse the guy who gives Mike Trout away for next to nothing because he just got back from his two year cruise in Aruba. We've all interacted with one at some point, and while they may assume different names and faces, at their core is the same essential trade personality. Click here to read Part One. Each of these characters is given a frustration rating on a 1-5 scale, where 1 isn't that bad and 5 makes you want to tear your hair out. On to the rest of the list... The No-ShowA favorite of mine, the No-Show is exactly what it sounds like. On draft day, he’s ready to go. He even makes some nice picks and has a nice start to the season. But that’s the last you’ll hear from him folks. Try sending him an email. Try calling him on the phone. Try sending a carrier pigeon. This guy just can’t be reached. He’ll resurface in September with an inbox full of trade proposals and his league dues ready to be turned in. He’s the Bermuda Triangle of fantasy baseball owners. Frustration Level: 5 the first year he does it, down to 1 after you get used to himThe ProspectorProspectors are a rarity in redraft leagues, although they do sometimes exist in deeper ones. More often than not they can be found lurking in keeper leagues. I actually believe the Prospector WANTS to fall out of contention so he can begin collecting prospects from other teams’ farm systems the way your creepy auntie collects porcelain figurines in her china cabinet. The Prospector’s internet browsing history contains the statistics from every minor league game that’s been played in the last three months and he’s most likely got a copy of the Prospect Handbook under his pillow, which he reads every night while his wife stares off into the middle distance. Frustration Level: 2Harassment HarryHarry just doesn’t take no for an answer. He sees his constant chatter as being persistent, and that has to be good, right? Not interested? Expect daily emails to continue. Blocked him on Facebook? He found your phone number. Giving him any of the players he wants will just aggravate the situation. You might think it will make him go away, but in fact it will be like feeding the seagulls at the beach. Soon you’ll be changing your address and developing a nervous tick when someone mentions the words, “...any interest in making a deal?....” Frustration Level: 4Accept-O-BotAccept-O-Bot is a personal favorite of mine due to the fact that I have been able to acquire players from him that are normally hard to get. You see, Accept-O-Bot gets his name from the fact that he will basically accept any deal that crosses his inbox, making it seem like his team is run by an automated response system. You can basically go to this guy with any offer and treat his team like it’s your own personal waiver wire. Only problem is that other teams are onto this as well, which means you will cringe every time you see Accept-O-Bot’s name in an “accepted trade” notice from your league, because somebody just got a player for 50 cents on the dollar, and it wasn’t you. Frustration Level: 1 when it's you, 5 when it's somebody else...The Treadmill (AKA: The Flipper)The Treadmill is a variation of the Accept-O-Bot, but he actually makes some pretty sly moves. The only problem (and this is how he gets his name) is that he will make so many cute little deals over the course of the season that he will essentially end up with the exact same team statistically as he would have if he made no deals whatsoever!  Every player he gets, he flips, and he keeps flipping and flipping until he can’t remember what he was trying to improve in the first place. You can spot a Treadmill pretty easily. They are the one that finishes in sixth place EVERY YEAR and their team never has any of the players they drafted on it at the end of the season. Frustration Level: 1Have you encountered any of these characters? Did we miss any? Leave your thoughts and stories below in the comments section.
