I would hate to kick him out because we are all good friends. But money is money. The rest of the league will get pissed off about this trade. If I know he is going to hang it up I should veto the trade. IF he wants to stick with it, is this that bad of a trade?

I can see Howard for Fielder or even Howard and a lesser player than Martin or Burrell, but Murphy and Padilla are Mod Edit for language.

Owners are rewarded for having depth in our league. In next year's draft, when a player from your roster is drafted you then get to protect/keep another player.

Howard > Fielder this year. Howard has been en fuego the last 4-6 weeks and despite a slow start is killing Fielder.

Martin and Burrell are blue-chippers; Murphy and Padilla are not. Either Burrell or Murphy would be worth more than the two of them combined. The team giving up is losing on every side of this trade.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

Thanks everyone - I did Veto the trade. I told them they needed to work on it. The owner getting Howard, Burrell and Martin could also give up Jay Bruce and a better draft pick in my opinion. He offered up Jay Bruce to everyone else in the league. This would atleast give the owner a player he might want again next year.
