Should it be vetoed?

Postby ghosty » Tue Jun 19, 2012 10:19 am

iam in a 12 team league. The trade is

Team A who is 1-9 traded RA Dickey to team B who is 6-4 for Mike Morse,Gavin Floyd and Chen (SP from BAL)

people are complaing cause they think its lopsided trade where the guy getting Dickey is getting the better and they are saying that the team is dumping. Now the 1-9 is not mathematically out of it. So this trade should go through right?

Not very good value for a sell high on Dickey. Not even close to veto though.

No issue with this, for every person believing in what Dickey is doing there's another person who thinks it will end (and/or another person who thinks he will end up somehwere in the middle).

Probably could get more for Dickey with the right owner who believes but in his ind he could be selling "high" for a three roster filling chips to help get some more points, wins, etc. Chen's been decent, Floyd's been terrible but SHOULD be better/solid, Morse has upside etc

If the same trade happened a few weeks ago people would be upset Team A was getting so much for Dickey

Agree with the above, not vetoeable at all. Dickey is doing some pretty amazing stuff right now but I really doubt many people would give up all that much for him. He is 37 years old and you don't see knuckballers with this kind of control and very much expect him to have a regression of sorts.

Morse was a hot player coming into the season before being derailed by injury and he could be very good in the second half. And the other two SP are average. Not a great sell high but I assume there wasn't much of a market for Dickey and he wanted to get something for him before he came down to earth.
