    Cellar Team Firesale

    Last place team (by plenty) trades Konerko and Matt Holliday to second place team for Shields, Ludwick and Aybar. Ten team league. Always question when cellar team cleans house for no benefit to themselves. Thoughts?

    • I have never liked the concept of vetoing a trade unless a dump is obvious. This deal does seem on the ornery side even though the last place team is getting value back. But the other guys is getting two players having super leagues. The team trading the pair can claim he believes that his traded players will have poor August and September. You have a real hard one here, because it is borderline. Is yours a dynasty league or one that will carry over a set number of players from year to year? This is a toughie. Is there money involved?

      • this right here is why i do not play one year leagues

      • Thanks for the response. It is a simple ten team roto league - no money and no keeper. I'm not going to do anything unless the teams trying to catch the 2nd place squad complain. Then I may simply let the other teams vote. I have never vetoed a trade but I really hate it when a last place team gives away it's best players for no obvious reason. He's so far in last place I think he could pick up the 27 Yankees for the last two months and it wouldn't make much difference. There is a funny part to it though - the 2nd place team getting Konerko already has Miggy at first and Ortiz at Util. To play Konerko he's got to bench Ortiz. Not sure that's a big plus for him. lol
