Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
The trade looked like this:
Now, It should be said that I also have Josh Johnson, Justin Verlander, Chris Carpenter, David Price, and Phil Hughes. Along with 3 other closers on top of Rauch and Feliz. I know that i was giving up a lot at short, but i also have Alex Gonzalez. So my short would be Hanley and Alex. (It is a two player per position league)
I planned on turning around and offering Lincecum plus maybe someone else, smaller, up to another player who had Adrian Gonzalez on the block and who needed pitching. there was a method to my madness.
Anyway, the trade was vetoed by the commish, and another @#$%y note was posted. Am i missing something? was this a terrible trade? I realize some of the key components are big names but hanleys actual season ranking is 89th not 2nd. I am angry that i wasted my time with this trade, but i wanted others opinions before i fire off an comment that would be unwarranted.
Depth can be overrated. What depth means to me is that often the players on my bench generate better stats than the ones I start. I'd rather have no brainers. Give me stars to start and I'll worry about the bench when i have to. The best trades you see on these boards are usually guys getting the big name stars for a lot of flotsom. Three for one type things. Getting Hanley and Tim is a BFD!!
I'm real confused here. I see posts saying that you got the worst of this trade. Are you kidding? You got Hanley and Timmy - by far the two best players in the deal. I am amazed that anyone could see this otherwise. Now - the veto. Did they veto it because they thought you were getting too much of that you were giving too much? Very odd.

i understand that player for player it isnt even, but i have to consider that i have alex gonzalez back and a ton of pitching. I wouldnt have done this if i didnt have a lot to rely on in the first place. but thanks for the advice.
