Is Brian Giles Ok Because.............

Postby Jedimindtric » Sun Apr 24, 2005 8:10 pm

I offered Mike Adams for him this morning and the other guy said he thought it was fair but he would have to check with his partner. That was BEFORE the Brewers game. After, he came to me and I tried to offer him a different player or another player in addition to Adams and he declined, he just didnt want me to pick up Bottalico. I said I would not and AFTER the Brewers game he still accepted the trade. I tried to be as fair as possible. Now it will go to our 3 man committee. I emailed the commish and explianed the whole story so it should not get vetoed as we are not trying to cheat. He just is desperate for saves and doenst want Giles. Is there something wrong with Giles besides a slow start I do not know about?

Yeah I know it might, but vetoes are for people trying to cheat. That is not the case here. In addition, Nobody has officially been named new brewers closer. It is still up in the air.

Even if Adams was the sure thing closer, that's still vetoable IMO.

So, let's see. The other party wants to accept Mike Adams for Brian Giles even armed with the knowledge that Adams is no longer the main closer in Milwaukee.

I'll go out on a limb and predict this guy won't win this particular league.

I hate veto leagues (unless there's a collusion possibility, of course), but in any league where it exists, this trade HAS to be nullified.

There is no collusion here, I don't even know the guy. I am in first and he is in 4th. I lead the league in saves and he has 1. This is a $$$ money league. I tried to change the offer after the game but he said he liked it and doesnt think it will be vetoed.

to answer your post, there's nothing wrong with giles. he's a good hitter who plays in a very pitcher-friendly park. his power #'s have decreased ever since being sent to the padres, and the dense ocean air doesn't help much. nonetheless, he's waaaaaaaay more valuable than adams.
