    Thanks. I was saying him myself. If I traded someone I'd have to drop one of the other guys anyways. You could only protect a certain amount of players over 25 and based on player rating/ownership etc you have to choose a FA on your team every year who then gets re entered in the draft.

    Okay I need your advice. This trade went down in a 12 person league where I'm the commissioner. Basically some want it vetoed, some say it's okay.

    Troy Tulowitzki for Jake Arrieta + Corey Dickerson

    Basically the owner in 7th (6 teams make the playoffs) is worried Tulo might be out a long time so did this trade. Is it lopsided enough to veto or is it a legitimate deal due to Tulo's health?

    I think he should have asked for a lot more but I don't think it's *vetoable*.

    That's pretty much the same thought process I have. Another owner might have given more, but this deal itself (and the concept of selling Tulo) makes sense.

    I think it's tough to veto a trade when it's between two legitimate owners. Unless a rule is broken or it's something extremely fishy like Tulo for JJ Hardy and Jeff Locke lol.

    I'm very lenient in terms of vetoing deals myself. Basically anything that isn't blatant collusion.

    So Brandon McCarthy has just become available in a 12-team dynasty league that I partake in.

    Should I drop Rubby or Roenis for him?

    Someone offered me Ian Kennedy and Kris Medlen for Mike Zunino in my ESPN 40 man roster dynasty league. I have Mesoraco as my catcher, however its nice to have a catcher like Zunino to backup down the stretch since my team is in second place in the NL.

    I'm going to see if he wants to do the deal in the offseason, though if I need to make a decision right now would you do that deal? From a value perspective its quite good. I know Zunino has displayed some great pop this year but other than that, he hasn't been anything special.

    Can someone from the DDL offer me a package like this?

    Are you fucking kidding me? You need advice to accept that deal?

    Jesus.

    Depends on how good your team is, also really matters if your league uses K/BB. If it does, drop Rubby for him. Actually, maybe drop Rubby for him either way but in a non K/BB league that is less clear cut.
