I think if the commish had any balls, he would reverse it immediately.

Have you asked the person getting the 4 playerd back exactly what he was thinking?

Nathan? Yea hes the closer now.
Hughes? He's back...but buy low now.
Tomlin? Waiver Wire trash.
Gordon? Was buy high a long time ago.

Heyward and Hanson are the 2 best players in the deal by a wide margin.

Although it doesnt look like a good trade im not sure its vetoeable. Gordon has had a good year but i think the guy is selling high and buyin low on nathan and hughes and i also think they both have a huge 2nd half. i also think hanson cant match those numbers in the 2nd half and heyward's soph slump continues.But this is by far not a veteoable trade.You have to let managers manage,if theres no cheating then u cant veto in my opinion.Let managers screw up their own team but im willing to bet the guy getting the 4 players wins this by seasons end.even if you disagree,come back at the end of the season and check the stats.hughes has a new power curve ball an nathan as a closer cant just be discarded.

I'm neither... just wondering if anybody finds this trade lopsided.

Some people value getting a little more quantity than quality. It's lopsided in my opinion, but look at it this way.

Several candidates to produce for Heyward (iffy this year) and Hanson (who, as a pitcher, can be replaced easier than a batter)...

By the end of the year, the "losing end" of the trade may be a winner. I don't believe it should be vetoed or reversed. Let everyone manage their way. Who knows? They could be a genius at year's end.

As for how I see it, it is tilted one way, but it's not grand theft or anything.

I'd much rather be getting Hanson/Heyward but Heyward is starting to slip into that "more hype than substance" category, and is a little brittle to boot. So not vetoable esp with Gordon playing well.

I think I want to be getting the two instead of the four!

Could you look at mine?

Team A wins, and it's one of the more one-sided deals I've ever seen.

Heyward has still not put all his tools together to be the player we all think he can be, but for a keeper league, he still has tremendous value.

Hanson is a future (current) ace.

Tomlin, Nathan, Gordon, and Hughes?

Keeper-wise, I guess Hughes has some value, but no where near Hanson. Gordon has some value, and is certainly out-performing Heyward in a big way right now, but in the future? I doubt it. The other two are just spare parts.
