Postby jake_harv88 » Tue Aug 07, 2007 4:12 am

Yeah - really need more info about your league to answer. Some thoughts on different types of leagues:

- In a redraft league, definite veto.
- In a straight keeper or dynasty league, definite veto.
- In a league where contracts are used where you can keep Jones cheaper and for more years than Bedard, it could be fine
- In a league where you forfeit draft picks to keep players, if you can keep Jones for a low pick and Bedard for high pick, it could be fine.

It all depends.

Top-notch pitcher for a possible top-notch hitter? I don't see the veto here. Maybe one team needs hitting and one needs pitching.

So, If I traded say... kevin slowey(when he got called up), for jose reyes that wouldn't be veto'able if my opponent needed pitching and i needed hitting?

yeah i dont see how that could not be vetoable. get the guy who's getting adam jones to give you some sort of detailed reasoning and if he has nothing, veto it.

Boy, I hate to veto, but unless there's some REALLY good explanation from the managers why this trade makes sense, I'd have to veto it. On paper, it sure looks messed up...
