UNM trades: FA picks inadvisable for UNM teams!

FA picks are much more valuable to "managed" teams as these picks can fill needs.

UNM teams use generic commish list and draft for future potential and much prefer rookie picks to FA picks!

In fact a good strategy is to offer rookie picks you think may not make your team to UNM teams who might have roster room for useful FA picks.

This kind of input is helpful, Mike.

Thanks for sharing this.  Any time you have insights to help us make the UNM trade offers work better and with less hassle, it's good.  They have vastly improved the experience of the game.

Ditto.

Whenever I want to make a trade to fill a need, I will always try to work with a managed team first.  However, this is usually very hard to do, either because:

- other managed teams have more balanced rosters (not too very good underutilized players)

- like last summer, the vast majority of owners of managed teams simply do not respond to any e-mails.

In contrast, UNMs (because of the drafting program) are likely to have, say, 2 very good SSs, but two INN Cs, and so forth.  Plus, even Mike can't get back to you for a week or so because of travel, he still answers e-mails.
