Should this trade be allowed?? WHIR

Postby Bogey316 » Mon Jun 24, 2013 9:22 pm

Ok, this trade just happened in my 10 team H2H league today. Categories are R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OPS and W, QS, L, SV, ERA, WHIP, K/9.

Team A got Miggy Cabrera, RA Dickey, Coco Crisp and Brian Dozier(MIN)

Team B got Brandon Phillips, Andrew McCutchen, Giancarlo Santon, David Ortiz and Felix Hernandez

I'm not one to usually veto a trade but this is extremely one sided in my opinion. I'm also the deciding vote that would veto the trade. Any opinions would be appreciated. Thanks!

is it a 1 player keeper? :-? obv the best player is miggy but giving up all those players kinda sounds like dumping to me. however i think unless collusion is involved there should be no veto

Sorry, I should've mentioned. This is not a keeper league.

4th and 9th(4th place getting the "better" end of the deal). However, I do know everybody in this league and I don't think there's collusion going on.

I think people who are trying to collude normally try and at least make the trade just look like a bad trade as opposed to an overly lopsided trade like this one. It is either the most obvious collusion in the history of fantasy baseball or just a dumb trade where one owner is way overpaying for Miggy, he is completely gutting his team imo. However I think while vetoes should primarily be only used in cases of collusion, this trade is an exception since you are saving team B owner from himself by vetoing the trade. I would definitely veto.

I am nearly 100% no veto, but this trade is an abomination. I think you might have to send a message that not all trades go through, especially in a non-keeper, and that this is just not gonna fly. I'd have to veto, there is really no justification for this deal.
