Multiplayer Trade Help

Postby rchemo » Sun Apr 19, 2009 1:02 pm

I am the commish in one league, and have given up veto powers in favor of an outside/unbiased opinion(i.e you guys).

Here are the details:
This is not roto, it's a H2H points league, scoring system is at bottom, but it shouldn't be that relevant, it is a pretty common CBS league slightly favorable towards pitching( 1 point for singles,2 for doubles, etc.. -1 for strikeouts, 4 points for a quality start etc...

The Trade
Team One Giving Up:

Gerald Laird
Jim Thome
Ryan Church
Brandon Webb

Team Two Giving Up:

Bengie Molina
Josh Hamilton

Team One claims he needs the hitting, Team 2 has is accident prone. I guess the only problem I'd see is the uncertainty with those two particular pitchers, so does this trade pass the litmus test?

Sure does. It isnt the most even deal ever, but I don't think that you can make a case that one side is colluding with the other.

I don't really know how to value players in points leagues (you could try posting their this year & last year point totals) but the names seem to make sense to me just on a player-value scale.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
