veto soriano for fuentes and valverde? WHIR

Postby stl_2006 » Sat Apr 21, 2007 12:13 pm

in my 10-team 5x5 league, someone's trading alfonso soriano for two mediocre closers: fuentes and valverde. is it just me, or is this a veto-worthy trade? i don't care about soriano's hammy -- he's probably going to be fine, which makes this trade ridiculously lopsided. what do you think?

I'd probably put it up to a vote. You are right, it appears lopsided, unless Valverde has a Gagne of 2004 like season (not impossible, but certainly not probable). Let the other members of the league decide if this one is too far. It's obviously not collusion so I'm not sure I'd vote to veto, but I might. Depends on the context.

I think its vetoable. Sorriano was top 10 on every mock draft. Valverde and Fuentes are not proven enough and will never be top 30. Hammies can linger, but I dont like this trade.

This one I would veto. We're talking about one of the best at his position for 2 avg closers at best. I'm sure that guy could do better than that for Soriano.
