Stults, Hellickson and Trout for Lynn, Strasburg and Trumbo would have been vetoed much quicker than yours.

 

I guess I am doing the fantasy trades all wrong.  To me, that seems like a reasonable-ish (without knowing more than the first-glance at the names value of the peripheral guys) trade. 

 

The one trade I saw that was nearly completed for Trout featured a couple good but not great guys (one of whom is having a career year) for Trout.  That's the issue I've been having trading away Cano, I'm giving up the best 2B in the game and wanting a good player plus a couple picks is pegging his value as above the moon.

 

How do you see trades for Trout that were nearly completed? I don't understand.

 

Also, stop taking it so personally that your trades pick up a handful of vetoes. Some of mine have received vetoes, too, but BFD. I think this whole thing is a good opportunity to revamp the trade review process (since he seems as though the majority of people want a new system for trade review in place).  

 

The thing I don't like about this process is that it seems really whiny. It's like when kids want their mom to buy them a candy bar at the check out line, and they just bitch until they get what they want.  I mean, a guy quitting the league because his trade got vetoed?  That's childish.  I understand people are all up in a tither about this, so let's just fix the veto system, give you Trout and him Cano, and we can all move on.  That way everyone gets what they want - after a significant amount of complaining.  Time to move on. It's fantasy baseball, and it's not worth a guy dropping out of the league or destroying relationships over.
