If you vote against a trade is it anonymous?

Postby muetze » Fri Aug 03, 2007 11:59 am

I'm in a 5 x 5 league and there is a trade proposed between a contender and an also ran that would alter the standings considerably. I was wondering if one voted against the trade if it was anonymous in a Yahoo 5 x 5 league?

Yes it is anonymous, but I wonder if you could post the trade so we can evaluate its relative merits.

The trade would be Burrell and Johjima for Victor Martinez.

Burrell and Johjima would be leaving a 4th place team that has a chance to win and C is his only weakness. Martinez would be leaving a last place team. Martinez is far better than either player (albeit Burrell is hot) and knowing the league members, it stinks of collusion. I think the only reason it is a two for one is that they were afaid of it being vetoed.

Yeah, that trade smells pretty bad. I'd put it up to a league vote and see what everyone else thinks. If the last place team hasn't been particularly active, it strengthens a case for collusion in my mind.

I'd get all the info out there and leave it to a democratic vote.
