Morneau is out of his mind right now. Dunn will post the same tired .240 avg all season. The SB's are a nice plus but if you'd trade rookie phenom Morneau for Dunn right now then you must not be experiencing much success at this game.
Even if you consider that a wash (which I definatly do not). That leaves a coveted Ace pitcher for a spot starter (atrocious discrepancy in value) and then Beltre for Burnitz and wright which I would view as a fair trade in and of itself.
So two valuations that I can make:
Becket + Morneau +++> Towers and Dunn.
this is an extremely lopsided deal there is no way around it.
As a Morneau owner, and former Dunn owner, I'd gladly trade him straight up for Dunn. Dunn is extremely undervalued, even without the SBs. Morneau is good, but his numbers are clouded by a really hot start. He's nothing more than a .280 hitter with 25-30 HRs. Not bad, but not Dunn either.
Beltre just sucks. I probably wouldn't trade David Wright for him. He's just simply nothing near what he was last year.
Burnitz and Towers are playing very well, and Beckett has never pitched a complete season in the majors without significant injury problems. Who are you to say that they won't keep it up? If the owner thinks they will, that's a calculated risk that he's willing to take. If it works out, it could mean the difference between winning and losing.
There's no way you can veto this trade. If you don't like the league, then find another one or start your own. This is totally fair. Stop complaining just because you think your friend got a good deal. I hate it when people do that. I get it all the time, and it pisses me off. It's just sour grapes because you probably could have gotten the same players for a similar value, but you didn't.
Live and learn.
