Ryan Howard/Biggio for Konerko/Kinsler: Vetoable?

Postby mrbo » Tue May 15, 2007 4:30 pm

This is a 16 team 6x6 (holds & OPS) keeper league. The keeper rules are we keep 3 players (1 from each of rounds 1-7, 8-15, 16-23/FA) for 3 years.

The 2nd to last place team is trading Howard and Biggio to his brother for Konerko and Kinsler. His brother is top 4 in standings.

Obviously this isn't collusion but it got enough votes for a veto anyway. I was wondering if you guys could give some input on if you think this trade is very lopsided or not.

I didnt veto it myself, I thought the Howard side was getting more value but it was close enough that it shouldn't be veto'd

def not worth a veto. Howard and Konerko are both slumping with Howard having an obvious bigger upside. Just depends on whether you believe in the hype of Kinsler and his projected numbers towards the end. Biggio is just garbage, he's done.

not vetoable in my mind. Veto is for collusion or roster dumping...

I wouldn't veto as is but, if there was some crazy draft round that might sway this, it could get interesting.
