    Ryan Braun Trade????????

    I'm a commissioner in a 12 team standard 5x5 roto. I trade was recently accepted in my league. The trade involves Ryan Braun for Justin Verlander. The team receiving Braun is irate and complaining to me that the deal was offered by him but wasn't accept until after the news broke on his suspension by the verlander owner. He didn't have the time to cancel the deal. He expects me to not let the trade go through. There is a veto voting policy in our league for blocking trades. He knows the league will not block the trade because he is known in our league for taking advantage of teams and nobody feels sorry for him. He claims I am not upholding the integrity of the league by not blocking the trade. Is he right or should I block the trade without having the league vote to veto it?

    • Buyer beware I say. It's really no different than if Braun got hurt and was out for the rest of the season. Besides, he had to have known there was a possibility of a suspension looming for Braun. Everyone was talking about it for weeks prior to it. I would probably guess too that if it went the other way and Verlander was the one that was suspended, he would probably laugh and say too bad.
