Should this trade be vetoed? Its really weird!

Postby powenM » Mon Jul 30, 2007 12:17 pm

20team dynasty league

Team A sends: AGonzalez(SS Cinci), DWillis, & CCordero

to Team B for: BJUpton

The funny thing about this is that Team A posted this message prior to the trade:

looking for a SS
not expecting a superstar type, just someone who will play and not kill my avg and ops.

Will consider trading upton or phillips if you can offer a SS of similar stature, but i'd prefer to move one of my decent outfielders for a decent SS.


Also The prob will this deal is the only SOLID player coming back is CCordero. The jury still is out on DWillis' value. Is he on the decline?

On the other hand BJUpton is a star on the rise.
Just traded BButler, BWood & JLoney for Mark Teixeira, Ryan Theriot & Renyel Pinto in a DYNASTY LEAGUE. Big gamble I know!

I don't think vetoes should be used in any case other than collusion, but even if you go into the "unfair" mode I don't think it's anywhere close to vetoable. Upton isn't that great. I actually think it may favor Team B if they need svaes.

This is a weird trade. Under different circumstances, I might say to veto, but the player dealing Upton was clearly looking to improve his own team judging from his comments on the message board. The fact that the deal is a little different than what he asked for makes me pretty sure that this isn't some kind of secret underhanded deal.

On the other hand, if the seller of Upton had fallen out of activity for a matter of months and then broke his silence by trading Upton for three very marginal (though with some upside) players, I might veto.

I see the sincerity of effort here, so no veto.
