I just had this deal proposed to me, and I'm pretty tempted by it. MY staff is stacked to the point where I'm not using pitchers (I'm sitting Vazquez and hernandez today due to bad matchups and the fact that I'm starting 4 SPs already. L's, BBs, and HRs count against pitchers, meaning that using too many can screw you up. H's, K's, and Total bases are the extra stats for hitters.
I get: A gonz I give: Haren, Vazquez
My roster: h2h 10 teams C: Baker 1b: prince 2b: utley 3b: Beltre ss: hanley of: rios of: granderson of: swisher util: ellsbury util: bruce bn: tulowitzki bn: wieters DL: Arod
Am I giving up too much, or is this a must take deal? its a shallow league, so theres some pitching availible on the wire ( I just dropped harang last week to grab hughes, for example. thanks for your advice, leave a link.

I would rather have A Gonzalez, but this trade should not have been vetoed, even in a veto happy league.
Is this a vote veto league or a commissioner veto league?
One thing I have tried (and failed) to implement in leagues that vote on vetoes is to make the vote the following:
(1) Is this trade an unfair trade? (2) Which team gets the unfair advantage?
Unless Question 2 is answered the same way by more than half the teams in the league, it doesn't get vetoed, even if Question 1 is answered as vetoable. Just a rant from someone who's played in too many leagues that has teams that will veto all trades that they are not involved with.
Sorry, I didn't drop Haren. I dropped Harang. my bad. I've already dropped sherrill (for Gregg). I'm not sure about your assesment of my staff though. Bills, haren, and Greinke seem like pretty acceptible staff aces to me. seven top twenty pitchers is pretty good, and allows me to play the matchups, since I couldn't use all of them anyway, without punting walks, HRs, and Ls. there's a real point of diminishing return on pitching in this league.
Best pitchers availible are WaRod, Harang, RJohnson, Myers, Maine, Wakefield, and Zack Duke (?)
