Pujols For Guillen?

Postby QuincyPondexter » Thu Apr 03, 2008 12:36 pm

Is Carlos Guillen for Albert Pujols a vetoable trade? Does Pujols' injury drop him down this much?

It's not a good trade, but I wouldn't veto it.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I probably wouldn't do that trade myself but I don't think you can veto it. What are going to tell the guy selling on Pujols if he goes down for the season in May. He tried to hedge his bet and you cost him his season. I say let it go.

Unless it's obvious collusion (which I don't see just from the swap) then you should not veto.

i definitely would cast a veto on that one. the person trading away pujols has no excuse on selling so low. check if he's trying to replace 1B with 1B, that would be even more reason to veto as it's not even filling a need.

I'd probably veto it unless you know the guy trading Pujols. Even with his injury, that's selling ridiculously low.

Where did the guy draft Pujols? For example, if he drafted him 1st/2nd round, why is he now so worried about it? 2nd week of season? Pujols at worst was a 3rd rounder and Guillen at best a 6th rounder.

I was giving the best case scenario for approving the trade. I think he is going in the 2nd round in some leagues. I got him as pick #11 in a 9 team league. With that said, the trade is vetoable IMO.
