Guy bailed on my trade

Postby Guest » Tue Mar 23, 2004 10:42 am

Guy agreed to trade Bonds for Luis Gonzalez, Austin Kearns and Esteban Loiaza. He needed another outfielder and had no starting pitching. Deal was all set but now (the next morning) he's gotten cold feet and has decided not to do it. I'm bummed.

Really? You'd rather have those guys over Bonds? I'm surprised, Bonds is still top 10 IMO.

No way that trade deserves a VETO, I would rather have the Bonds side, but I could be argued either way.

I hate it when people get all VETO happy

No veto but I would rather have the non-Bonds side. Feel happy the guy changed his mind...

I can't get over how many folks think they have the right to veto a trade for anything other than collusion.

Not worth a veto, but I'd want the Bonds side.

Loaiza---Isn't worth a spot on most fantasy teams. 4+ era and 12 wins tops.
Gonzalez--One throw or swing away from the end of his season with Tommy John surgery. (torn elbow ligament)
Kearns--Should be great if he can stay healthy.

I'd take Bonds over that.
