Manny for Granderson, H.Owens and Tankersly

Postby las_vegas_keith » Tue May 08, 2007 5:36 pm

There has been a protest lodged in our 11 team mixed 5X5 roto league. This is a salary league starting with $260 at the auction minus the cost of the keepers. We start 14 hitters and 9 pitchers.

The trade is:

Manny: $46
Reggie Willits: $10 (a pickup off the waiver wire, all wire pick ups come with a $10 price if used as a keeper next season)

for

Granderson: $1
Owens: $10 (waiver wire)
Tankersly $10 (waiver wire)

One owner has lodged a protest. I don't have an issue with the trade as the person who is trading Manny really wants to get saves and said he likes Graderson for $1 as a possible keeper for next year.

Any thoughts?

Anyone? Is this a fair deal? Does the owner lodging a protest have a point?

It's a definite buy low on Manny..and like you said a hope that Granderson is a good $1 keeper, so I'm getting the sense that that person has some expensive keepers.

I think it's not a smart one for the person losing Manny but like you said they really need saves enough to lock down the FLA situation and get a cheap keeper. I would let it pass.

My only other thought might be to ask the complaining owner what their rationale is. I agree Manny is far and away the biggest name in this so maybe that's it.
