Is this bull?

Postby The Dynamic Hispanic » Wed Aug 02, 2006 6:48 pm

I worked out a trade with someone that looked like this:

I gave:
Atkins
Hawpe
Benitez
Willingham

For:
Eric Chavez
Fuentes
Podsednik


The trade was accepted.

It was vetoed by the commissioner (who has pulled off the biggest BS trades in the league) because he said the other guy texted him saying he "hit the wrong button when he was drunk"

I am pissed off because once a trade is accepted it is done as long as the league doesnt deem it too offsided.

And if Dontrelle Willis for Corey Patterson and Brandon Phillips (a commish trade) isnt lopsided, then this definitely is not.

If true, the trade should be nullified. It's not a veto in the traditional sense which you are trying to make it seem.

If the guy accepted on accident then it should be nullified. Best move would be to ask the guy if he actually said that. If not then you have a real complaint.

That trade doesn't look that bad to me.

Its not even that great of a trade to get worked up over though. I say if thats his explanation (the owner texted him) then it sounds like you guys all know each other pretty well and you can find out if that actually happened.

The commish of this league is evil and always talks people out of doing things which is why I think that is what happened.

These are trades the commissioner has made with people (he is good at talking people INTO things as well):

He traded:
-Johnny Estrada and Ray Durham for Francisco Cordero and Todd Jones
-Gil Meche and Jamie Moyer for Chad Cordero
-Bill Hall, Carlos Delgado, Frank Thomas, Josh Johnson, and Jeff Francis for David Ortiz, Jorge Cantu, and Tim Hudson
-Corey Patterson and Edwin Encarnacion for Dontrelle Willis and Bill Hall
-Tyler Walker for #1 waiver wire position for the rights to Cole Hamels
-BJ Ryan for Hank Blalock
-Vernon Wells, Nomar Garciaparra, and Brian Fuentes for Carlos Delgado, Torii Hunter, and Mariano Rivera
-Grady Sizemore for Vernon Wells
-Curt Schilling and Scot Shields for Francisco Liriano and Jake Peavy
-Jason Isringhausen, Scott Kazmir, Randy Johnson, and Daniel Cabrera for Miguel Cabrera and Brian Fuentes
-JD Drew and Kris Benson for Jason Isringhausen
-Brian Roberts, Derrick Turnbow, and Matt Morris for Alfonso Soriano
-Jeremy Hermida and Felix Hernandez for Curt Schilling and Grady Sizemore

I think you're basically complaining.

Out of the all the trades you listed, the only lopsided ones are Liriano and Soriano, the rest are good. On top of that, when you factor in when these trades were actually made (beggining of the year Liriano was not valued above average), owner's personal interest, etc. I say you have no case. Sorry.
Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I've seen alot worst trade, the Willis trade isn't that bad, depending on what the teams needs are. If this league is this disturbing, quite and move on. Fantasy baseball is for fun.
