Commissioner Corner Message Board
I am the Commissioner of a 12-Team Head to Head Keeper League. This year, we had a new manager take over one of the teams. From the start, this manager appeared not to know what he was doing. For example, he dropped Aramis Ramirez when he got injured when he had a DL spot available. This drop was reverted for lack of knowledge as a one-time exception and no other manager complained.
Last Friday I wrote to the new manager because it seemed he was not going to reach our 40 Innings Pitched requirement. He went on to drop Mark Texeira and Jared Weaver (both currently in his DL) and pick some other pitchers. After discussing the issue with the new manager and questioning his moves, he told me he did not have time to manage his team and that we should get a substitute manager.
Now, Mark Texeira and Jared Weaver went to waivers and picked up by 2 other teams using FAAB. The substitute manager is requesting that these moves be reverted since they were made the day before he took over the team. I understand that the drops and subsequent FAAB Bids and pick-ups should stand since there was no collusion involved and were made in good faith.
WHAT DO YOU THINK? SHOULD TEXEIRA AND WEAVER BE PLACED AGAIN IN THE SUBSTITUTE MANAGER’S TEAM OR SHOULD THE WAIVER PICK-UPS STAND?
P.S./FYI/BTW: Weaver ended up in my team since I was the highest bidder. Does this fact make a difference since EVERY team was able to bid on him?
I'm interested. Please send invite to email@example.com
I'm an experienced player who plays in another deep keeper league and I'm looking for a second league to play in.

That's what I think too!
BTW, I would be getting Gonzo and the others and giving up Zimmerman.
I'm currently in second place in my 12 Team Head-to-Head League and trading with the guy who is in 11th place(?) and he just told me that he was getting too little for letting Gonzalez and the others go!
I'm looking for power since I don't have much of it (damn you, Kendry Morales and Shin Soo Choo) and I can't win the league without it (just played with the first place team and got owned)
Team A would get:
B.J. Upton (or Troy Glaus)
Team B would get:
Is the trade fair? Comment please!
12 Team Mixed league with 3 keepers.
Already keeping Kinsler and Zimmerman. Cant decide if I want to stay with Markakis or Kendry Morales (who had a breakout 2009 season).
Who should I chose?

I offered Loney and Brenyan for Fielder, thinking that he might be interested because of how poor his team was doing (he needs hits, big time) and was countered with the proposed trade.
Team A gets:
Team B gets:
It seems Team B wins, but is it a fair trade, particularly if Team A is dead last in a 12 X12 mixed league?
