I'm not sure on letting this one through

Postby balmlb119 » Sun Apr 29, 2007 8:49 am

Team A sends...

Grady Sizemore
David Wright

Team B sends...

Joe Mauer
Josh Hamilton
Ryan Theriot

I could argue that Sizemore and Wright are first round talents, while Hamilton and Theriot are hot now, but down the road, who knows.

Thoughts?

its tough, if no collusion you can see the point, Wright has been bad not producing 1st rd #'s far from it, Sizemore a stud tho

Hamilton has huge upside & theriot is a hot commodity also , if no collusion i wouldnt veto

Good point... I don't suspect collusion.

This one is too far off. I really would NOT let it through. You have some upstart guys and a great catcher for a pair of second rounders. I think you have to veto this. Put it up to a vote in your league, I think they'll agree with me.

I presonally would let it through. Catchers are hard to find, so he probably values Mauer very highly. And you can't veto a trade because someone freaks out and trades Wright after a bad start.

But it's Wright and Grady. Either it's a novice, in which case the league is up in arms which is a situation which calls for a veto, or it is cheating, which calls for a veto.

My league would vote against that, guaranteed.

Then no veto. ;-D

Vetoing is for collusion not to "protect" other owners. You are playing with people who you must give credit to run their own teams as they deem fit.

I'd let it go through. Depending on the rest of my lineup I'd take either side of that trade. I don't think Wright will turn his problems around this year, and Hamilton and Theriot are good young talents.

I wouldnt let it through. Looks entirely lopsided to me. I don't know if I'd trade those three guys for just Sizemore, let alone he and Wright. Absolute veto, IMO.
