So personally, I think you should be able to trade uneven draft picks after the draft.


I agree with what all of you are saying, and this sums it up most easily. It just has to be within reason, and you have to draw the line somewhere. That's all.

And of course it's subjective, and therefore imperfect, but you can't take judgment out of the equation, so don't bother trying.

If you want to play in a league where the object is to pillage the inexperienced managers' rosters with such trades immediately following the draft, be my guest.

I for one don't play in leagues that play this way.

It's all subjective, and in my mind, a necessary evil.

The main thing I want to stress though, is that it has to be substantially lopsided. I don't know anything about hockey, but under my system the trade of the second round guy for the sixth round guy is right at about the point where you start to think seriously about a veto. Maybe it'll get voted down, maybe it won't, but a veto is certainly defensible, regardless of what happens in the future to prove it wrong.

Yeah, I could be right trading my first round pick for another manager's twentieth round pick. I might win big, but you have to keep these things SOMEWHAT under control.

Manny Ramirez may have a down year, and Adam Dunn might slip to the 20th round and take the league by storm, but I don't think these guys even up is a fair swap, and I wouldn't allow it.

But that only pertains to my single veto vote. How you use yours is up to you.

When it comes to fantasy newbies, I think you do sort of have to drive with them, so to speak. Just like someone has to drive with you when you had your driver's permit...

So you think my spelling is connected to my fantasy knowledge?

Dude, you must have had a miserable childhood.

I think we're finding that experienced owners is the key. It's not so much "would you do it?" it's "do you think he knows what he's doing?"


in a nut shell! ;-D
