no way this would pass, right?

Postby MEHPITT » Sat Feb 11, 2012 8:06 pm

n a 5x5 al and nl roto league with keepers who can be kept an unlimited number of years at a $2 bump, a guy just dealt miguel montero at $10 and danny espinosa at$7 for matt kemp at $13, would any league allow a trade like that to pass? I may be crazy, but this just looks impossibly lopsided to me

That trade is absurd.

absurd but not your place to veto it unless you think there is collusion.

I would try to avoid having two posts addressing the exact same issue in two separate forums.

A $2 bump is a really, really light bump.

I am very strongly in the "no veto unless clear collusion" camp, but I'd still veto that deal. Incredibly lopsided and I can see no reasonable argument stating otherwise, unless one guy has some inside information that Kemp is going to retire this year to join a monastery.
