That reasoning again? How bout for the integrity of the league you should veto trades? Trades arent gonna be even always, as this one isnt. But this one isnt even close really. Ishii is on the DL let us not forget. Dunn is barely over .200 and so the deal is basically Jeter and .200 hitting Dunn for the games best hitter right now in Pujols, and a pitcher that has been pretty darn good all year in Williams.
I'd consider a veto this deal. I'd have to hear some reasoning as to why someone was wanting to give up two really good players for 1 decent player and the other two so-so players. I'd suspect something was up too if this were a team in contention getting Pujols side and the other team was out of it.
Ok, here's another way to look at it:
Ishii will be back and sports a good era and k's. Bad whip, and lack of run support, but good for era and k's.
Jeter's power is returning as seen by his 2 home run game yesterday, so there should be no concern over his injury.
Dunn has hit better since the break and has power. He's also been hitting cleanup lately.
Woody Williams has slowed down considerably. You should be looking to trade him away, not acquire him at this point.
Pujols is the best right now.
Doesn't look as bad as you make it out to be. It just depends on how you look at it. Certainly not worth a veto.
