David Wright for Starlin Castro - Veto?

Postby sigriffey » Thu Apr 28, 2011 10:55 am

Our league is pretty retarded. Someone just traded David Wright for Starlin Castro. I've seen far better deals vetoed before. What say all of you?

I'm usually against vetoing trades unless I suspect collusion, but that trade smells pretty fishy. Is there anything that ups Castro's value a little more (is it a keeper with round/price values attached or something)? Maybe it's just an incompetent manager.

It's a keeper league ... but only 3 year contracts. So Wright is definitely more valuable than Castro.

The same owner offered me Nick Swisher for my Alexei Ramirez yesterday (lowball), so this is fishy indeed.

No way is this veto worthy. This is a keeper league and Castro, even though he can't sustain the BA this year, looks like he could be ELITE at the SS position for years to come. The guy is only 21 years old!

I HATE veto'ing trades. Both sides can win on this. Yes Wright may be better right now, but the guy buying Castro might believe he is a top 3 SS THIS YEAR, and if so, how can you tell him he isn't allowed to make that trade?

Someone is selling high on Castro, and the guy buying might believe he is elite this year or very soon at a VERY thing position. If Castro hits .310-.320 this year with 15 HR and 30+ SB, that is Hanley Ramirez territory with less power and he is only 21!

No way should you veto this. Not fair to either of the other owners.
