Oh please, I honestly veto like one in ten trades that I see, but on the controversial ones (ie the ones people post on the cafe and say, "should this one have been vetoed?"), I'm usually conservative. So sue me. This trade looks good.

One in ten trades? In eight years of playing fantasy baseball, I think I've vetoed two, possibly three trades. :-°

That trade looks just fine to me.

I know this isn't what you want to hear, but this is just another one of the many reasons public leagues suck. Of course random strangers are going to veto anything that improves someone else's team- they want to win too, and in a public league they're faceless, totally anonymous, free from the burdens of conscience and fair play.

More reasons public leagues suck- dead teams, blatantly lopsided trades that go through due to sneakiness and apathy, excellent players being dropped, late-season collusion.. the whole package.

That 1st trade looks fine to me.
The ARod for Wright one is a little sketchier, but chances are they were both 1st round picks, so if the other guy wants to sell high on ARod by trading him for a guy who went 10 picks later then that's his perogative.

It was a swap of A-Rod for David Wright. Again, maybe a little unbalanced, but nothing I would consider vetoable.


Didn't catch this one before. I wouldn't have voted to veto that one, because like you said, they were both first rounders, but I can understand how some people might want to veto that. It just doesn't make a lot of sense. Given ARod's hot start, the only rationale that I can see for that trade that jumps out at me immediately is that the guy with ARod is a Yankee hater who either autodrafted or took the best value hoping to make a trade later. Either way I wouldn't veto, but I can see how some people would scratch their heads and at least want an explanation.
