Before you guys all tell me I was wrong let me explain why I dropped my best players in protest.
This is my second year doing a yahoo baseball league with my co-workers. The Commisoner has always been my boss. In fact most people in the league are under him at work.
He is the worse commisoner ever. Vetoing trades left and right and any time I try and protest any of his trades he pushes them thru before anyone else can say anything.
here are some of the trades I felt where wrong.
he traded Jason Kendall and Chris Stynes for Jeff Kent (Aprill 11th)
(he got Stynes as a free agent)
he traded Brad Wilkerson and Ensberg Morgan for Garrett Anderson (June 23rd) (both guys he got as free agents)
he traded Eddie Perz, Frank Thomas, and Shawn Chacon for Ivan Rodriguez and Curt Schilling (Thomas and Perz were on his roster for less than a week) (June 24)
Then he vetoed my Goodwin and Meche trade today for Zito.
my trade is probably more balanced than that last trade of his.
the biggest problem is he is almost everyone's boss and fear him and there are probably only 3 or 4 people in the league that really follow their teams. So when your boss comes up to wants to make a trade to you and you aren't really following the league what would you say?
So today after he vetoed my trade I posted a message that I quit and dropped my best 7 or so players.
he e-mailed me telling me he called Yahoo and they are going to delete my yahoo account:
"I just called Yahoo in California to see what can be done about this. I talked to a guy that said he is sick of this kind of behavior and is going to discontinue your current yahoo account. I told him to hold off for a day or two, since I know you have a lot of stuff through that account, but if you don’t change your team to allow the commish to make moves for you by tomorrow night, consider your account gone. This is not a threat… but a promise.
Please e-mail me back ASAP. I will also be contacting you via phone tomorrow to resolve this issue if it’s not settled by noon."
