Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Hey guys, I'm the commish in my leauge and a trade went through that got one guy upset. I'm trying to figure out what I should do. Here is the trade
Team A got:
Team B got:
Just a couple factors to take into account. Player B, who got Dunn, has been aggressively trying to get Dunn since the beginning of the year and has advocated all year that he will break out of his slump.
Player B also has Prince Fielder which apparently made it easier for him to part with Pujols
Player B literally has been picking up and dropping SS all year as he has absolutly no SS worth owning.
Player B also has Kelly Johnson and Dan Uggla at 2nd.
Player B has Josh Hamilton and Matt Kemp at OF.
Player B desperatly wanted another solid SP.
And I guess the most important thing is that player B was willing to make the move and he did, the trade went though, didnt get vetoed, and now one manager is all up in arms about it.
As commish, I hate to see one of my leauges get like this, and I am never one to veto if I know the trade is made without collusion.
What are your thoughts? What should I do, if anything?
This is simple. If the league settings are that the teams and not the commish veto any trades the commish can't step in and arbitrarily veto a deal that the league has already allowed. No matter how stupid it is. You have to play by your rules. come on Goose - you have to agree with that!
I'm a traditionalist. I want fantasy bball to reflect real life, so if Toronto can unload V.Wells on LAA, pay hardly anything for it AND get Rivera and a decent back-up catcher in return, than who the hell cares if Seattle's feelings are "hurt"?
Grow up already. Two guys made an agreement and that's that. I'm not so high on Dunn or Torii Hunter, so I think the guy getting Pujols and company wins out in the end, but the guy getting Dunn gets his dream-come-true player and strengthens his pitching, so there you have it, they both feel like winners and that's the only thing that's really important in a trade.
I would encourage you to put your foot down as the commish; lay down the law. The rules were followed, so now it's time to shut up. That's life, we can't always get what we want, and the socialist policy of having to have other managers even vote on trades is just weird to me. But those are my two cents.
Thanks guys, thats what I was thinking. Just wanted some outside advice. Team B posted a message saying thats what he wanted to do and he was happy with the trade because it was filling holes, and this was the response from the unhappy manager:
"bro shut the **** up that was a horrible one sided trade and u know. **** what holes u need to fill, the only hole that needs filling is your ******* by a prison felon. You guys suck u just made this league ****** LAME!! You guys are *****, plain and simple. ****** new York pieces of *****"
