I despise vetoes, but...

Postby baegames » Thu Jul 19, 2012 7:20 am

I actually prefer playing in a league that has no vetoes. In twenty years of playing, I may have voted for a veto once. Is this my second time? 10 team mixed

TM 1 traded Mark Teixeira, NYY 1B
TM 1 traded Ryan Braun, Mil OF
TM 2 traded Ryan Howard, Phi 1B
TM 2 traded Justin Ruggiano, Mia OF
TM 2 traded Pedro Alvarez, Pit 3B
TM 2 traded Heath Bell, Mia RP

My analysis: Tex for Howard. I' rather have Tex due to injury concerns, but fine.
The rest of the deal: Braun for Ruggiano (flotsam), Pedro Alvarez (decent in a ten team league, I guess, but not a star), and Heath Bell (jetsam)

Am I underrating Alvarez or the difference between Tex and Howard? Just let it pass because some owners are idiots, and try to make a deal myself with TM 1.

Well that is pretty bad. I am going to assume no funky keeper rules that might be in play here?

I hate vetoing things as well so I probably still let it slide but this is very close to ruing the integrity of the league. Have you asked Team 2, why he would do this deal? Maybe he has a good explanation as to why.

Unless collusion is suspected ... it's gotta stand. It is pretty bad unless there are funky keeper rules like brought up above.
