Opinions on this draft pick trade please *whir*

Postby aplviper » Thu Feb 21, 2008 7:02 pm

I would like your opinion on a draft pick trade that has been proposed in my league. The league is a 10 team, standard 5x5 roto with 22 players (only 1 C).

Team A has offered picks 20, 21, 41, and 100

Team B is giving picks 10, 11, 130, and 210

Team B has accepted this trade.

I ran this trade through a draft pick trade analyzer, and the value of each set of picks is almost identical, 9602 points to 9590 points.

I can see the advantages from both sides, Team A ends up with picks 1, 10, and 11, but doesn't pick again until 40. Team B doesn't pick until 20, but gets 4 of the top 30 and 5 of the top 40.

Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

It's a little bit odd but looks creative and it's not so unbalanced that you could make an objective judgment that this was done for some sort of bad purpose or even one team was being taken advantage of. And if that's the case, let the kids play.

Trade approved.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I don't think its horrible...

Basically, would you rather have(according to espn rankings):

Carl Crawford, Jimmy Rollins, Matt Capps, Carlos Marmol


Carlos Lee, Vlad Guerrero, Cole Hammels, James Shields

Obviously you can't look at it exactly like this but close. I think both sides have advantages. I would probably ask for the two owners to explain why they wanted to do it, but unless they said something really ridiculous(like because i don't care) I wouldn't veto.

thanks for your help with mine; much obliged.

while odd, i can't find anything overtly inappropriate of this trade. It doesn't smack of collusion and it certainly doesn't give an edge to one team over the others. it's just a very weird trade. all said and done i don't think i'd be able to scrounge up suitable grounds for blocking it. let 'em see what comes of it.

thanks again
