So I agreed to a trade this week in my keeper league:
I sent: Cano, Segura and two late draft picks (28th and 29th rounds) so essentially Cano and Segura.
I received: Kipnis (he'd fill in for Cano I suppose, but I also have Seager and Carpenter), Braun and 6th and 7th round picks (we keep 5, so these are useful picks for me).
The trade got vetoed, and I'm trying to see what reasons people had for it, but I'm looking for opinions on the trade. Cano and Segura would likely end up as keepers for the owner I traded with, Kipnis and Braun may or may not end up as keepers for me (one might, both wouldn't fit).
I feel that the other owner improved his team this year and I improved my situation next year (getting draft picks since I can't keep the 8 or 10 guys on my team that would be worthy of a keeper selection).
Was it really that lopsided? Obviously I think I got a good deal, that's the point making trades right? It just doesn't seem vetoable to me.
League: 8 Team, Points, Keep 5 Players.
Offense: 1 pt per base, runs, rbis, walks, HBP. 2 pts for SB. -1 pt for CS and Ks.
Pitching: 1250 inning limit, 1 pt per out/k, 7 pts win, 3 pts QS, 8 pts save, 5 pts CG, 10 pts SO, -5 loss, -1 BB/hit/ER. Note that closers have much higher PPIP (~8) than a SP (~3.5), so closers are extremely valued, within reason.
