LM looking for opinions pleae WHIR

Postby jonboycubs » Mon Aug 08, 2011 5:20 pm

I am LM in a 16 team high scoring h2h points 4 keeper, 30 man roster, league. I pass trades in the league dont use voting. I have a run at winning it this year but needed one final piece. And that was a great starting pitcher. I had all ready traded some of my picks away to non contending teams for upgrades. To get to the point. I had posey who obviosly got hurt, so I traded and got Mauer, but kept Posey. Posey was going to be my one untouchable, I value him as a top keeper catcher, moving foward. So finally my keepers were Sabathia, Posey, Miggy and Grandy. Then I thought well i can just keep Mauer but i was not going to just dump posey back into the draft next year.

So i just traded him last night for Halladay and a 17th round pick, and he got Posey and my 7th round pick.

I have heard grumblings from some teams saying it was too lopsided. and we should go to a voting system next year for trades. No one is pissed, just think it was lopsided, and me being the LM, and it was my team, its as if I passed it just cause it helped me. Which it does short term and help me win this year. He is definately a keeper, but posey is to and he is younger. plus he got a good pick in the 7th. With 5th round being first since 1-4 are for keepers. He wins some in the long term. If i though Posey was high value to me, which he was, maybe not other teams, but to me he was so I was going to get the best deal or not trade him at all. keeper for keeper imo

My keepers will not most likely be miggy, grandy, cc, and halladay

I would not have a problem with this trade. You gave up a good young keeper and a higher round pick. For an established Keeper SP and a lower round pick. Who ever has beef with this trade would propbably be someone who has something to loose(an owner that's close to you in the standings).

Why not go to a voting system next year? This trade would go through and the shut the haters up. :-X
