14 team league. Fantasy point scoring. Non-keeper.


Team A gets: Rich Harden, Rafael Soriano, and Henry Owens

Team B gets: Joe Mauer and Jon Garland


In a ten team league this trade wouldn't make that much sense but in a 14 team league closers are very valuable.

So far the trade has 5 vetos and 6 are needed in order for the trade to be nixed.


What do you think? Veto or not?

My personal view is that Vetos should only be used if other managers have a legitimate concern that some kind of collusion is going on.

Generally, the two teams making the trade know what they are getting and what they are giving up. A lot of times, the crowd that wants to veto a trade because they think its lopsided won't even agree on which team is getting the better deal. So there's no reason to veto a trade that two managers entered into of their own free will.

60% of the players in this deal are on the DL

Yes, both parties were fully aware as the trade was accepted this past Monday night.

Don't veto. I don't see anything wrong with the trade, especially if Wickman takes his closer role back.

I never mentioned it in the first post, but I was involved in the trade and was to get Mauer and Garland.


The trade has since been vetoed. :x


:-k The ironic thing about it is that my end was said to be the end that got the better of the deal from the "vetoers". When asking many different people for their opinions, it was about 50/50 as to which side actually got the better trade. :-k

This is EXACTLY why veto power shouldn't be used to keep trades from happening. People juse see big names and flip out.

If I was in a league where that trade was vetoed, I'd quit immediately.
