Shameless exploitations of bad CPU trade logic!

This thread is the exact opposite of the other trade thread going on. This is the place to showcase the most unrealistic and worst of the worst trade offers you’ve proposed, received, and/or accepted.
I’ll start with mine.

Wanted Tommy Pham off my team ASAP earlier this month, so I put him and Brian O’grady on the block to see what my options were.
The Cubs offered Kris Bryant, so I ended up taking him in the end, but the Diamondbacks offered Madison Bumgarner, and the Devil Rays actually offered Wander Franco. Can you imagine that on the Padres?
First string: Fernando Tatis Jr.
Second string: Ha-Seong Kim
Third string: Some guy named Wander

How have YOU taken advantage of the CPU’s horrible trade logic?

Not a trade of my own but Vladdy Jr., Christian Pache and Kyle Lewis all got traded for peanuts during my first season.

Vladdy ended up on the Nationals, Pache on the D-Backs, and Lewis on the Padres.

Not a bad trade by the AI but they needed a better return. But the Orioles traded Mancini to the Rays for Ryan Thompson. I went ahead and looked on the trade boards and gave them good prospects for Mancini. (Actually traded the 3 prospects for Ryan Thompson back).

Re: Shameless exploitations of bad CPU trade logic!

Oh we have to go waaaay back if we want to talk about my nastiest trades. That is at least if we want the context of real life, since my 2014 carry over has acquired a few differences from real life.

I think I traded for Josh Dolandson (remember my franchise started in 2014 the Jays didn't have him then) using a ham sandwich and a blockbuster gift card. I pretty heartily fleeced the Texas Rangers to get Xander Boegarts back (I had him as a rental) using a struggling 3B prospect who had way too high of demands and was clearly only ever going to be great at defence.

I think my best fleece though was a 1 for 1 trade in the 2014 year. Adam Lind for Eric Hosmer.

Don’t feel bad. After all the Jays did fleece the A’s in real life to get Donaldson.

Re: Shameless exploitations of bad CPU trade logic!

I'm guilty of raising attributes of my low ranked minor leaguers, lowering the attributes of a star/stud prospect, making a trade and then resetting their attributes back to normal a time of two in my MLB The Show career...

Re: Shameless exploitations of bad CPU trade logic!

This year exploits are worse than ever. I test this every year, and this is the first year where you can add complete garbage players to finish off a trade for a young superstar (Tatis, Soto, Vlad, etc.).

It seems like value has flattened out, and that young stud prospects -- guys like Pache, for example -- are valued about the same as replacement vets.

Things got worse this year, not better.

House rules and restraint.

Unfortunately I won't do a 30 man control so I get to sit back and watch the nightmare unfold!
