Keeper trade

Postby Mtt33 » Thu Aug 07, 2014 11:28 pm

Only a 10 team league that you keep 5 in an auction. the following trade went down and was vetoed without explanation. I'm just looking to see if people think it's fair:

Abreau: would be kept for 9 bucks next year
Altuve: kept for 8
Tavares: kept for 3
Yelich: kept for 4

For

Miggy: no keeper value
Hamels: some small keeper value, but wouldn't be kept
Hanley: kept for 22ish, probably wouldn't be kept
Addison reed
Rios


Thought this was pretty fair given the team out of contention landed 2 stud keepers in altuve and abreu.

Not a big veto person but I honestly feel this would result in comments on my league message board. Others wouldn't like it. Not saying collusion but it's a bad trade in my mind.

Help me land Tulo!

Thanks, answered yours. If you break the trade down, which part isn't fair:

Abreu and altuve for under 10 each next year. (50-55 in savings next year) for
Miggy Hamels Hanley

Yelich for 4 for rios. (I prefer the yelich side)

Tavares for reed

Not veto able. I am slowly dropping out if all my leagues that have vetos.

I actually think the team playing for the future might have gotten the better end this year though I am sure I am in the minority. That's why we have keeper leagues.

Please help with my trade deadline question.

I wouldn't veto it, but as someone above said, I could def see people making comments about it. Course, some people will make comments about any trade that they aren't involved in.

I don't understand how someone could veto that trade. Clearly it's a trade between a team in contention and a team out of it, or trading present for future. He's giving up some big names that CAN'T be kept for some stud young players that will be kept? ROS is a terrible trade, but in a keeper league it looks fine to me.
