should i veto the trade? Arod and Howard involved

Postby philly4life553 » Sun Apr 13, 2008 1:02 am

Alright here is the deal.
Team A gets
A-Rod and Delgado
Team B gets
Howard, Beltre, and Jared Weaver.
I don't think the trade is even because team a is not giving up enough. but is it bad enough to veto. team a also finished second last year and won the year before. while team b is in his first year. what should i do?

No veto. I would definitely take the A-Rod side, but it's not ridiculous enough for a veto.

Let it go. It's fine.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

That is DEFINITELY close enough not to veto. In fact, its pretty darn even. Why do you think Team A is not giving up enough? They are giving up Howard who is a first rounder, Beltre who is pretty much a wash with Delgado, and Weaver who is much better than a FA pitcher. Let's say that pitcher was someone like Marcum. The value difference between A-Rod and Howard is about the same as Weaver and Marcum, IMO. A trade has to be obviously lopsided to veto.

thanks everyone for your help. i don't like to veto trades unless they are awful. i didn't think this trade was that bad. i just wanted to get another opinion on it, so when i do pass it through. the leauge wouldn't go crazy.
