Babkas confirm the trade.

are you sure the picks as announced weren't supposed to be reversed?

The difference between these two players considering their splits and the fact that both were keepers is much closer than the difference between a 6th and 18th round pick. When you also consider how they have hit so far this season the difference is much, MUCH closer....

I have a hard time believing any hitter not named Trout would also fetch as good a pick as a 6th with Encarnacion going back the other way...

Ken being Ken again.....

The burger was the catalyst in getting this deal done, that's for sure.

big price to pay for a gamble though.

What exactly does it take to get a trade vetoed in this league, anyway?

If you clam up long enough, new games are run and posts stop and there's no need for a veto.

Negative poll results don't matter...

I think it takes either collusion or bad faith (like an experienced owner trying to trick a new owner) to get a trade vetoed. I think Ken got the better of this deal in isolation, but if the Babkas really needed a bat to play OF, rather than 1B, it makes sense from their perspective.
