I think the Santana side won, but I don't think it's insane...

That's pretty borderline...I'd lean more towards bustin out the veto.

I would have vetoed that. I own Santana and there is no way I would trade him for those two guys.

Some advice? viewtopic.php?t=301740

Nor would I but that shouldn't be the only reason to veto.

I just don't think Matthews/Putz is equal value to Johan, that's why I would veto it.

But why do trades have to be "equal" to avoid a veto? I think you - and too damned many others - misunderstand the point of the veto option. It's not to ensure perfect trade harmony - it's to make sure that some folks don't cheat. That's it - using it to veto trades just because you think they're not exactly equal is a misuse of the option... :t

This is just my opinon on this trade. I have been play fantasy baseball for 4 years with multiple leagues each year and I have only vetoed ONE trade ever so I don't misuse the option, I hardly use it.

If you're that stingy with the veto, then I don't understand why you'd nix this trade - it's not that bad...
