Then they must be telling x amount of people. I know that 5 people arent vetoing it (myelf included) it i a 10 team league with 2 co managers.
That's what I figured, but I've never done any fantasy sport before and I wasn't sure, so I thought that it would be best to ask. Thanks for not attacking me for being "dumb" for asking questions like some users here have done. I appreciate the confirmation, sir.
I'm doing well in most pitching categories but dead last in R and HR in a 12 player standard 5x5 league. These are my players, which pitcher should I trade away to improve my hitting?

It's probably the best time to for you to make that trade. If Stanton was red hot and putting up All-Star numbers you'd never be able to pull off that trade on a 1 for 1 basis. If your SP is deep no would be the time to get a big bat like Stanton and hope that he turns it on ROS.
This is not a joke. This is an actionable event.
Hear me now...believe me later. If you do not add Motter now you will not be able to add him June 30th.
It is important to note that Motter has unseated former #1 overall draft pick Tim Beckham as the heir apparent at SS for TBR. Brad Miller is NOT holding on to the starting spot the remainder of the season.
As far as expected stats...Motter is a hybrid cross between Ian Desmond and Mookie Betts. He is a power/speed player that currently holds 3B and SS eligibility and is working on OF eligibility (a la Betts). If Betts was considered a poor man's McCutchen...Motter is a poor man's Betts. It is important to view the entire sample set of data when evaluating players. This is certainly true in Motter's case. Don't limit yourself to his small MLB sample or this season's AAA sample. Look at his full body of work in 2015 and 2014 (and beyond).
In 2015 in AAA Motter put up the following line in just 127 games:
74 R, 14 HR (58 XBH), 72 RBI, 26 SB, .292 BA (remember..these are tougher International League stats, not Pacific Coast League)
in 2014 in AA Motter put up the following line in just 119 games:
60 R, 16 HR (38 XBH), 61 RBI, 15 SB, .274 BA
Remember...this is coming from the guy that first mentioned Charlie Blackmon in these forums, told you to take Jason Kipnis over Brett Lawrie when they were called up the same week, and though he was not first to mention Betts or Pollock he is among their greatest promoters.
To do this fantasy baseball thing right you either need to be first, be the best, or cheat. I know you aren't cheaters and you ARE NOT the best...this is your chance to be first.
I have a team available in two twelve team roto redraft leagues needing a replacement manager. The first team is in a standard league, and has VERY strong hitters (Abreu, Bryant, Trout, and Votto). Pitching needs help, but the hitters alone should move the team up the league.
The second team is in an OBP, R, SB, HR and K's for batters, and W, WHIP, ERA, SV+H and K for pitchers. Players include Goldschmidt, Joc, Freeman, Heyward, Blackmon, Salazar, Kimbrel and Tanaka. The second team is probably not as good as the first team, but is perhaps more balanced.
Both teams are in last place due to previous (the same) manager dropping players. Any takers? (Email and team wanted).
