Commissioner Corner Message Board
The league format is a 12 team H2H non keeper. With 25 starting positions and 5 bench. The league hardly makes trade, and I always try to make trades to keep the league lively. However, I have had several trades that have been accepted then vetoed either by the commissioner or league vote. Here are 2 trades that have been recently vetoed
Adrian Gonzalez (Bos - 1B,RF) Player notes
Edwin Encarnacion (Tor - 1B,3B) No new player Notes
Ichiro Suzuki (Sea - RF) Player notes
Josh Willingham (Min - LF) Player notes
Carlos Quentin (SD - LF,RF) Player notes
Shaun Marcum (Mil - SP) No new player Notes
Rickie Weeks (Mil - 2B) Player notes
Adrian Beltre (Tex - 3B) No new player Notes
Kelly Johnson (Tor - 2B) No new player Notes
Hunter Pence (Phi - RF) No new player Notes
Carl CrawfordDL (Bos - LF) Player notes
Jon Lester (Bos - SP) No new player Notes
The commissioner blocked this trade because he said there was too many players involved.
Now this trade just got vetoed because it was "unfair"
Brennan Boesch (Det - LF,RF)
Carl CrawfordDL (Bos - LF)
These were only 2 trade scenarios, but it seems like every time I make a trade everyone just clicks veto. It's so annoying
One more thing: the two trades you listed as examples seem a tad one0sided in a sense, but that's the beauty of trades. What looks ugly today may turn beautiful tomorrow. Baseball is a game of timing, and fantasy baseball is getting the right people at the right time. Gut feelings mixed with player performance. No, you don't accept a Jim Fregosi for Babe Ruth deal, but there are very few fools who'd go that way.
I am commissioner oif two leagues and maintain sole veto rights. I have never vetoed a trade. I do not believe in putting out veto powers to the general league because too many people have too many selfish interests. Yeah, there are some dopey commissioners, too, but I bend over backwards to keep my owners involved. They seem happy and several are already asking to reserve spots for the 2013 season.
