    Commissioner Vetoed Trade-Rules Say League Vote

    A day or 2 after our draft, I offered Alexi Ogando to receive Dee Gordon. The trade was approved the next morning around 9AM, but around 2 I received the following email from the manager of the other team:

    I've changed my mind on this trade and asked the commissioner to veto it. My reasoning is because I thought Ogando was a starting pitcher, and I found out he's being moved to the bullpen.

    I pulled the trigger to quick because of his good starting pitching stats.

    The commissioner then vetoed the trade saying it is not balanced since Ogando is a long reliever and not a starting pitcher or closer.

    I have two problems with this:
    1. The league calls for a league vote to veto trades, not a commissioner veto.
    2. At the time I drafted Ogando and offered the trade, I too thought Ogando was starting so I feel the commissioner's argument doesn't hold.

    I appreciate any comments on this. Thanks everyone.
