CBM.......I applaud your efforts here and I agree with a lot of what you say in general about this topic but not about this specific deal. I will give you that it's a bad deal right now. It might even end up being a terrible deal when all is said and done. That said, it could actually end up being a decent deal. Personally, I expect solid 2nd halves from both Gomes and Escobar. If they both produce, depending on who the other guy had to drop, it could be decent. Would I have made this deal if I originally had Beltran?? No way. Do I feel that this deal should be vetoed?? No way. I only veto if there is collusion or if the trade is so bad that it will really negatively affect the league. I don't see how this specific deal accomplishes either of those criteria.[/u]
It would seem that someone with "Stupidity is also a gift of God, but one musn't misuse it" in their sig would be up for protecting inexperienced managers from making bad deals. And it’s spelled mustn’t
I don’t like the main focus of a league to be on initiating the best rip off trade you can find. Allowing dumb deals forces competitive managers to mirror this practice. It’s exhausting and usually requires use of dark side powers, which is not fun in the long run. I prefer my leagues to disallow dumb deals and to put more focus on draft skills, adds/drops, competitive trading , bench/play matchups, ect. Despite this I probably would not chose to veto the deal in question, unless it were a small sized league.
