    • I just started my own keeper league because I got tired of commissioners doing that. My philosophy is that if both sides agree to the trade then its on them. Even if its a bad trade, bad trades happen in baseball all the time. The only way I would veto a trade is if their was clear collusion. If anyone would like to join, let me know! The league should also be under the name Serious Keeper League with the password being baseball.

      • I run five leagues, each with a different twist, and as a commissioner I have never vetoed a trade. I only asked a pair once about a trade that seemed weird on paper, but that is what trading is about. The trade you attempted to make seems like it is one-sided. So what! One of you is playing a big hunch, which might very well play off. This is what trading is about. P)lease consider coming to one of my leagues. Below is info on each.
        League A will be LEAVE IT TO SEAVER – 2013. Like last year, it will be a rotisserie league. This league will have between 12-15 teams, each with a 28-man roster with traditional player drafting. ID: 34370 . Password: 69nymets86.

        League B will be called JUST A BIT OUTSIDE, which was called Trio last year. This league will be a 10-team H2H league, with each owner drafting three teams. In this league each owner will have an active 28-player, game-by-game roster, with free agents coming from the three teams he or she drafted. Trades are allowed, including players that are in your organization but might not be on your active roster. Adding a little intrigue to this is that each team will be allowed to make 8 player moves per week. ID: 35481. Password: 41nymets21.

        League C will be called HAVE RUNS, WILL TRAVEL, which will be a 12-14 H2H league with traditional player drafting. Each team will draft 28 players and have a two-man protection list of players in the minors who are not on the Opening Day rosters. ID: 34598. Password: 86nymets69.

        League D will be a 10-15 rotisserie league team called DON'T MESS WITH JOBU'S RUM! (from the film Major League.) This league will offer team drafting as opposed to single player drafting, but each team pick nets owners five players from the team he or she picks. This means when you pick a team is just as important as which team you picked as more than one owner will select players from a team. Thus you will have a roster of 30. Players not drafted will go into the general free agent/waiver pool.

        League E, Mendoza Line All-Stars, is a unique group where all stars might not be the way to go. It will be a 12-team H2H league with traditional drafting. But what will count here are the small things: bunts, sacrifice flies, sacrifice bunts, base on balls, pick offs, holds (no saves), and assists are among the main categories. Home runs, average, ERA will not matter here. So this league will pay homage to the players whose stats often get buried in the box scores nut are important.. This will be a quirky change of pace league. ID: 39998. PASSWORD: 21nymets41

    • So what exactly were the trades?

    • this is a wraning sign. Lots ofcommissioners and managers screw aroiund with trades for self interests. As commissioner of f leagues I have never vetoed a trade but will question one that makes less sense than most. As long as manager can give me rationale behind move it is approved.
