Yep, that's stupid crazy. It shouldn't get vetoed, though. Gordon was a top prospect, maybe he HAS turned the corner. Maybe Alvarez is a bust and Latos has some scary injury issues. It's no one else's call to do the player evaluation besides the managers involved.

Very intersesting, in that as of now, Alex Gordon is indeed the best player in the deal. If he is finally living up to his potential then you may be losing out. Meanwhile, why would you want to replace him with Pedro Alvarez, who has been awful this year? As for Latos, I agree with the previous comment regarding injuries...they are scary and you have a decent staff as it is.

For my thoughts on Pedro Alvarez, check out my "Fire & Ice" column, here: http://razzball.com/fire-and-ice-week-3/
My opinions on Alex Gordon were well documented a while back, here; http://profantasybaseball.com/fantasy_baseball_news.php/?p=693

Hope that helps; good luck!

I'm pretty confident that Alvarez will turn it around and eventually find his swing, while there is no way that Gordon keeps this up. I think I will wait til after Latos start today to make my decision...

Alvarez has been a notoriously slow starter through his brief minor league career. I think you have to pull the trigger on this deal without hesitation.
