Should I have vetoed this trade?

Postby thechanman12 » Fri Apr 27, 2007 10:25 am

I let it through because I didn't want to be the type of commish that basically prevents any kind of trading from going through at all, but the balance of power has shifted way too much as a result of this trade I think

Team A got:

Ray Durham (SF - 2B)
Aramis Ramírez (ChC - 3B)
Álex Ríos (Tor - OF)
Scott Olsen (Fla - SP)
Oliver Pérez (NYM - SP)

Team B got:

Chase Utley (Phi - 2B)
Brian Roberts (Bal - 2B)
Scott PodsednikDL (CWS - OF)
Eric Chávez (Oak - 3B)
Félix HernándezDL (Sea - SP)

12 team roto

R, H, HR, RBI, SB, K, AVG, OPS, W, SV, BB, K, ERA, WHIP, K/BB, K/9

This was a dilemma for me because Team B is my cousin and Team A is just a random person that joined my league. I am pretty sure there is no collusion here because my cousin doesnt know him, and team A is still very active, posting a lot and updating his team everyday. But because of this trade, team b is completely stacked and is ahead of the 2nd place person by 30 points (8x8, not that many categories) so we already basically know who's going to win the whole thing now (team B). And team A is already falling everyday. Should I have vetoed this trade?

Well I see it as Team A is giving up a first rounder (utley), 5th rounder (Roberts) a 6th rounder (king felix) and team b only gives up a 4th (Aramis), 7th (Rios) 14th (Durham) and 2 undrafted pitchers

I dont see anything wrong with this trade...team A seems like a more impatient player who doesnt want to wait for Utley to get really hot (although he is starting to now), and wants to trade his guys on the DL for healthy players. If kind felix wasnt on the DL it looks a bit lopsided.

It doesn't look like collusion, but it doesn't look like a good deal. Going into the season the players that team B got were the better buys and though April has brought about some change to that value, it hasn't brought about that much.

I'm not sure that it should have been vetoed, but I'm not sure it shouldn't have been either.

A wins the 3B & OF matchup and B wins the SP & 2B. It's even.
