Was I right to veto this?

Postby Cobra_Kai » Sat Jul 25, 2009 10:33 am

A trade was proposed and accepted in our league, and I vetoed it. I haven't ever vetoed before, but this looked like a clear case of collusion. One of these teams (the one that got the clearly winning side) is in 3rd place, the other is in 7th. Both have it out for the team in 1st place - for one it's a personal dislike, for the other it's a fantasy dislike. In any case, the 1st place team pulled off a trade earlier this week that had some people upset (he got A-Rod for Zobrist/Nathan/Morgan), and so this looked like clear retaliation to me (aka the 3rd place team and 7th place team conspiring to try and knock the 1st place team out).

In any case, here was the trade:

Utley/Kemp/Halladay/Helton for Reynolds/Lind/Gallardo/Hart/Kendrick

Basically, one team was giving up his three best players (Utley/Kemp/Halladay) and the other team was giving up two productive players (Reynolds/Lind) and three guys who have been absolute garbage.

I feel pretty confident, but I NEVER veto trades. I just wanted some input.

it looks to be definite collusion/retalliation. Ive seen it before. When somebody is suspected of collusion, invariably other teams try to conspire against them.

Gallardo has been "absolute garbage"???

I think its slanted but wouldnt veto it

If you think that gallardo is garbage, you have no buisness in fantasy baseball. That trade is def not vetoable unless you are 100% sure that collusion happened and that is hard to prove.....
