Trading borderline ww fodder for first round pick constitutes a vetoable trade for me, sorry. Obviously there are other people here who disagree and you can feel free to take their opinions instead of mine.

No matter how hard or long you argue it is NOT a vetoable trade.

Howard was never expected to repeat last year's #'s by basically everyone.
Trades are not just about how valuable the actual player is they also have to do with team needs.
He needed a player and he needed a pitcher simple as that.

Was it a bad trade...probably but veto's aren't their to stop bad trades they're their to stop cheating. Was this cheating? No. So it should NOT be vetoed.


*BTW no trade is ever 100% "fair"

I understand no trade is 100% fair, and if he was playing in a 12team league I wouldn't veto it(Because higher end pitching is much harder to come by)(still consider it horrible). But in a 6 team mixed league(where everyone carries 4), pitchers as good as Dice-k can be had off the waiver wire.

This is the 12team league equivalent of trading ryan howard for claudio vargas(or shawn hill, chad durbin, or boof bonser etc etc) or someone else who is WW material, or borderline WW. Which is basically player dumping.

In his league this is the equivalent of trading a 1st round player for a 9th or 10th round player, Straight up. Thats highly vetoable to me, unless there are outstanding circumstances like gruesome injuries, ridiculous prolonged slumps(andruw jones,lance berkman) etc.

Obviously I am not the only person who thinks it should be vetoed, since your league vetoed it. Everyone is entitled to there opinion and I am atleast backing mine up with some reasoning.

actually you are the only one that thinks it's vetoable. no one logs on in my league and the only person to veto the trade was the kid that offered to me so i guess he realized he made a bad trade. still u cnt veto it and it makes it worse that he vetoed it after offering it to me
