This league has "Complete Games" as an added stat. Due to this extra stat, I am running with a "No closer" policy this season.

Update: I spoke to John yesterday about this trade and he asked me if I thought it was a good one. I encouraged him as he is new and explained to him some of the concepts of trades . He didn't know anything about the quality of the players as expected and had accepted the deal solely on the basis that he was getting 3 players for 2 and he was told that he desperately needed this closer.

Just noticed Brandon's comment on the previous "lopsided" trade. This was Atkins for Swisher and Scutero. (Swisher and Scutero were dropped by the other team approx 2 weeks after the other trade went through).
Just looking at the o-ranks of these 2 trades combined,
Team 1 gets
19 JP, 27 MO, 52 GA
Team 1 gives up
101 NS, 135 RI, 184 TJ, 334 JJ and 994 MS
A huge upgrade

Thanks for your responses. It is not a public league but a custom 10 team. I'm good friends with the commish and find this all a tad unusual. My main concern is that a new player has been screwed and traded away 2 of his top 5 players to the team leading the league (which obviously strengthens his team).
What are the chances of a voluntary trade reversal?

I generally only get to this email address once a fortnight or so. All my normal communications are either on the league message board or the smack talk on your team page.

Thanks for your responses, I guess my question is, can I use the league message board to indicate that I think a trade is unfair before it occurs or is that considered the wrong forum and I should only use email?
Question of Fantasy etiquette. A trade came up and was accepted . It was Ordonez and Peavy for Ibanez, Jurrjens and Todd Jones. I felt that this was some what one sided and the one giving up Ord and Peav was relatively new.
I posted on the league message board that I didn't think this trade should proceed.
My message was deleted. I re-posted and it was re-deleted.
I was informed by the commissioner that the league message board is not to be used as a soapbox.
This trade has now gone through. The commissioner who was leading the league now has Ord and Peav to add to his arsenal.
Question! Am I out of order by posting my opinion on a trade proceeding on the league message board?
