Team A gets Cano, Cain, and Miguel Tejada
Team B gets Garza, Polonco, and A-Ram
This is a 16 team keeper league so this is a pretty big trade because of the small number of names in FA. What do u people think?
I'm commissioner in many leagues. I rarely deny anything.
You have to remember Fantasy is Gambling some gamble for fun.
You have no idea what any of those 6 are going to do. And projections are only estimations of that. Most of the times 50% of projections are wrong.
Especially last year, there were so many surprises!
The best player on the trade is Robinson Cano and best pitcher is Cain. It is very one sided for team A, but Team B gets 3 good players too. Polanco and A ram pretty much covers his 3b and CI with starters and Garza has upside switching from to the NL. You have no clue of his new ceiling though. And guess what?
1 injury to anyone then the trade doesn't look that bad anymore.
I don't think this one is veto-worthy though I think the player receiving Cano et al has the more promising deal. Long season though and more players bounce back from bad seasons that get better after big ones.

You cannot judge a deal on fair value alone... there are a lot of reasons people trade.
Sometimes it's need. Sometimes they really like a player or team. Sometimes it's speculation.Sometimes they're dealing from strength and can overpay to get what they want. And sometimes, yes sometimes, they rate a player differently than you.
By the way, Cano, although good, is over-rated because of the market in which he plays. He has no speed. He hits for power and average. But so do a lot of other guys available, except they steal bases too.
I play Fantasy Baseball to manage MY TEAM, not someone else's team. I don't play to have somebody else tell me I can or cannot trade someone for someone else.
Vetoes are there for a reason though... cheating and collusion and yes, grossly egregious trades.
This trade may seem one-sided to most, including myself, but there is nothing WRONG with the trade itself. It doesn't fall into any of those categories. I don't see any reason for a veto.
Unless the other owners are just jealous that they didn't pull this off themselves. Instead of vetoing the trade, they should be making offers to the manager.
As a parting note, how many trades in MLB are fair value? And when they aren't, the other teams can veto a trade, right?
Just my honest opinion...
Put it on the owners to justify their deal. Post that you cant see how this trade could be a fair deal, and you need some clarification on the thought process for the team giving up Cain. If they can give some reasonable explanation, then let it go. If its clearly BS or they cant respond at all, veto it.

I hardly consider him one of the best 2B right now and I like Garza he's playing well right now. If I think the trade benefits me and he thinks the same, then why would you veto the trade? Are you afraid it would disadvantage you?
that was the guy trading cano's response....sounds retarded to me for real
