Trade Uproar

Grey and fellow razzballer's I would love for you to weigh on this trade that's causing quite a stir in my keeper league.

(I am not one of the teams involved)

Team A
Cahill
C. Perez
First Round Pick (in next yrs draft)

for

Team B
Lincecum
Third Round Pick

**Team B is last in K's, ERA and W's**

It is very difficult to trade in our league. Full of veto nazis. Highly competitive league and no one likes a bs trade.

Cahill, in our recent arguments, is being hailed as future Cy Young winner. He can be kept in the 20th round in next yrs draft, so has an overinflated keeper perspective.

I'm some what on the fence. Team B feels like he's getting a great deal for whatever reason. So since he's all for the trade I have a hard time vetoing BUT I don't see how trading your best 5 category pitcher when your last in W, K and ERA will help you going forward. He stands to gain some points in Saves but not enough to truly catch up. Team A is driving the Cahill hype machine hard. Why would he trade him if he feels so highly about him?

The league stats are in my signature. Thanks to all who add to the mess!

These kinda of trades are common in keepers. I'd want Lincecum but it shouldn't be vetoed.
