Trade Review? Veto or just unbalanced?

Postby converge241 » Fri Aug 03, 2012 2:02 pm

Trade Accepted
Team 1 traded A.J. Pierzynski, CWS to Team 2
Team 1 traded Kelly Johnson, Tor to Team 2
Team 1 traded Juan Pierre, Phi to Team 2
Team 2 dropped Rod Barajas, Pit to W
Team 2 traded Brandon Phillips, Cin to Team 1
Team 2 traded R.A. Dickey, NYM to Team 1

Standard 5x5 roto keeper

I know what my gut reaction was and keeping in mind phillips is "hurting" right now and of course there are some who insist dickey "cant keep this up" but obviously you have two guys owned in all mix for 3 guys who can be useful but..

So looking for some inputs/opinions. I am not involved in the deal.

I think it is unbalanced, but not veto-able. The only situation in which I would approve a veto here is if the guy trading away Dickey and Phillips has a history of making lopsided trades to certain people when his team is out of the race at the end of the season... Even then, you need to do some digging and and ask why he thinks this trade helps him. That's normally my approach to the matter, as a league member without supreme veto power.

Help with my proposed scoring system?

I agree with this. Then again, every trade is unbalanced so this one just fits in with the rest.
