Pissing me off w/ the vetos

Postby Ross » Mon Apr 20, 2009 7:26 am

I was trying something crazy in one league and drafted only pitchers. I've since been trying to trade for a hitting team just for fun. The people in this yahoo public league are ridiculous about veto'ing trades. So far 2 of them have been, although i resent the first one and it was accepted after i bitched at the league. are these uneven?

Preseason, I sent Lincecum and Felix for Kinsler and Quentin

This just got veto'ed last night.
I send Johan/Zambrano for Ryan Braun b/c i needed one more elite outfielder to complete the team.

Keep in mind I ONLY drafted pitchers in the draft.
What do you think?

Pitchers are a lot less valuable than hitters so you've got a long road ahead of you. That being said you're doing the right thing now which is to trade and get some bats. Neither of those trades are outrageous in my opinion but you are certainly getting the best of it in both instances. For the league to veto them is pretty ridiculous though from both a logical and strategy standpoint.
