Thoughts on trade as commissioner.

Postby the big commish » Wed Aug 01, 2012 12:46 am

If you where the commish what would you think about this trade?
League is H2H 5 player keeper.

Team 1 (none of the players are keepers)
Andrew McCutchen, Curtis Granderson, Elvis
Andrus, Michael Bourn and Phil Hughes


Team 2
Hunter Pence 4
Gio Gonzalez 7
Mike Trout 21
Alcides Escobar 20/15 FA
Trevor Bauer 27
Dustin Ackley 9

This is my first time on this site so if more info is needed let me know.
Thanks for any help you can offer. :-)

I think you are asking is it fair?
I wouldn't veto it.
Player 1 has the advantage, but the second guy is overpaying for the best name in the game right now - Trout. So, you can't stop a trade like that.

Yes wanted to see if other people thought this was a fair trade.
Some players have been complaining that it is lopsided but I don't think they factor in Trout or even Gio's keeper value.

Team 1 leaves the deal on top, but it's not too lopsided for it to be vetoed.

It's not really about whether it's a good trade, or even a fair one. The standard is collusion. Say one guy is completely out of it this year, knows he can't win, and wants to help his buddy win. So he trades Cutch and Trout for two pieces of dead weight. You veto that. Not because it's a bad trade or unfair, but because one guy is deliberately trying to help the other guy.

I take it the numbers after the player team 2 gets are the round they can be kept in? If so he's getting Trout, a top 5 overall pick next year, in the 21st round. There really isn't any way to overpay for that. Nevermind he's landing a few other nice keep values. No reason to question this trade.

Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

That's what I always thought. It should be is each team getting value (based on there needs) back. I don't understand why some people base a trade on how fair it is to the league.
The first two trade was vetoed...

Andrew McCutchen Curtis Granderso, Elvis Andrus Michael Bourn Phil Hughes

Gio Gonzalez Mike Trout Alcides Escobar Trevor Bauer

Then Pence was added still vetoed so Ackley was added.

If anything I think forcing more players to be added was unfair because the other owner is looking for keepers and especially considering the way those two guys are playing they probably have 0 value to him. It was only to appease some of the other players who might complain its not fair :~(

Yes trout its a definite 1st round pick next year. Maybe if I replaced his name with albert pujols as a 21st rounder it would look better :-D
