Commissioner help, is this Votto trade fair?

Postby commissionermike » Sun Apr 13, 2014 9:54 am

Joey Votto for Chris Archer & Sergio Romo


Team getting Romo needs a closer and SP bad but does this really matter


Trade is between perfect strangers so no collusion but what are your thoughts?

If there is no collusion, the trade should be approved. Player B needs a closer and may be willing to place a premium on that. That is his decision.

People value players differently, To me it's alittle lopsided but I would not veto it because obviously this guy values Romo and Archer different

some league specs needed in these kinds of posts, but many believe Votto won't approach 100 rbi's ever again. In 162 games last yr he only had 73. if walks don't help in this league it is a fair enough deal. even so, it isn't a veto anywhere even if the Votto owner didn't get full value

I think you shouldn't be meddling in other owners trade decisions. Value is subjective and trades do not need to be "fair".
