Pierre for Burnett.

Postby sixer03fan » Fri May 25, 2007 2:50 pm

yo guys, two managers in my league just completed a deal: pierre for burnett. one of the other managers wants it vetoed, because he says pierre's avg. has dropped 20 points in the last week or w/e and he only helps one category. and burnett he claims is fantasy ace that helps in all categories.

i however, think its definitely fair, or at least good enough to be accepted. but i don't want to make this manager upset. what can i tell him via a posted message on our league page to make him understand that this is a fair deal?

hitting categories are: hits, avg, runs, sb's, hr, rbi
pitching stats are: wins, k's, saves, k/9, era, whip

Pierre for Burnett is totally fair. No way you veto that. In a leauge with Hs as a category, Pierre's value is even higher than it is normally.

pierre has his serious upsides and he proved it last year as long burnett stays healthy. there shouldn't even be an argument over this situation. personally i wouldn't trade burnett for pierre but at the same time if someone wants to make this assenine trade who are you to stop them. if you know they are in cahoots in this and this is a money league than voice your opinion otherwise let the dumbass trade away burnett.
if you have ever had five pitchers go on the dl at the same time you would spray out your locker room too.

Legit Trade. Though Burnett has potential i dont think he's taken on an ACE role just quite yet
