I actually prefer playing in a league that has no vetoes. In twenty years of playing, I may have voted for a veto once. Is this my second time? 10 team mixed
TM 1 traded Mark Teixeira, NYY 1B
TM 1 traded Ryan Braun, Mil OF
TM 2 traded Ryan Howard, Phi 1B
TM 2 traded Justin Ruggiano, Mia OF
TM 2 traded Pedro Alvarez, Pit 3B
TM 2 traded Heath Bell, Mia RP
My analysis: Tex for Howard. I' rather have Tex due to injury concerns, but fine.
The rest of the deal: Braun for Ruggiano (flotsam), Pedro Alvarez (decent in a ten team league, I guess, but not a star), and Heath Bell (jetsam)
Am I underrating Alvarez or the difference between Tex and Howard? Just let it pass because some owners are idiots, and try to make a deal myself with TM 1.
