should I allow this trade to go through?

Postby MasterX1918 » Tue May 29, 2007 9:34 pm

(trade's been accepted)

Johan Santana
Craig Biggio

for

Adam Dunn
Barry Zito

weird thing is the Johnan Santana team offered the trade. He previously proposed Santana for Zito straight up (which was obviously accepted by Zito's team), and I declined to let the trade go through of course. The two teams then started calling me a dictating commish. Should I allow this one to go through?

I think that he is an idiot and I don't like the trade but I wouldn't veto it.

I wouldn't make the trade and I think that the Santana side owns here but that isn't enough for me to veto. Biggio is crap. Santana is the best player while Dunn and Zito are the next best 2.

Any time that you are on the fence about vetoing, it might be useful to send both parties an e-mail asking for an explanation. Maybe it's based on need. Maybe they overvalue a certain player. Things like that. Too many people just look at the names involved.

Yes, you should let it through.

It clearly favors the Santana side, but it isn't that bad.

Yah let it through. It's pretty lopsided but not veto worthy.

I usually let trades go through no matter how bad the trade is for on side if there are no signs of cheating. Sometimes some owners are just not that bright. Especially if they are new to fantasy baseball.
