Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
I lobbied for a veto because this just seemed insane to me, but somehow the rest of the league found it justifiable. It is a 12-team, 8-player keeper league. I'm especially bitter since I'm playing against Player B this week and I'm getting murdered in pitching stats.
Player A gets:
Bryce Harper Was - OF
Lorenzo Cain KC - OF
Mike Minor Atl - SP
Player B gets:
Adam Jones Bal - OF
Corey Kluber Cle - SP
Tyson Ross SD - SP,RP
Please validate me so I can feel better about it.
I wouldn't veto it, especially since it's a keeper league. Harper is still only 21! Most 21 yr olds are still in the minors. Now is the time to get him, because once he starts living up to his potential, he'll be untouchable. So I understand giving up some more value for him now in hopes for a better future gain.
I hate people who want to veto everything. Let each manager decide how he wants to run his time, if he believes in Harper, why is this such a big deal?
I wouldn't veto it but it's not a good trade. I'm not a believer in Harper but I know some people still think he will be as good as Trout. And as long as Minor plays for ATL, he will always be overrated.
That is completely awful and I cannot validate this trade. The key pieces to focus on here are Harper, Jones, and Kluber both for this season and in the future. You can throw Cain, Minor, and Ross out the window in a 8 team keeper and Minor and Cain should be on waivers in a 12 team league, Ross should be a very low end pitcher so his part in the deal is negligible. Jones is a 1st round pick and by far better than anyone in this deal. Kluber may have a slight edge on Harper this season but Harper may edge him out in 2015 drafts. Eliminate Adam Jones from the deal and it is fair, otherwise it is like trading Adam Jones for Mike Minor straight up!
