Need Commish Opinions. Is this Commish Bush League?

Postby RoxSox8 » Sun Jun 11, 2006 6:32 pm

I have been trying to work a deal for a power hitting Of, and made an offer to guy with 7 OF and plenty of power on his team. He countered with the following deal.

I get Carlos Lee OF, he gets Millwood/Biggio. Biggio will start for him and Millwood has been solid in many H to H categories. I think I'm getting a good deal, but he's filling some needs as well.


This is what my commish posted, "If you are against it post soon or forever hold your peace. I'm not quite sure why Team A would accept this offer, giving away the 17th ranked fantasy player at this point in the season, for some mediocre pitching and a washed up second baseman ranking 100 and 300 something respectively... to each his own i guess. Nice move Team B, way to offer up that solid "ill take your best player and dump 2 nobodies to you" that your so notorious for."


This is not a money league and it is strictly for bragging rights. I don't even know the guy I'm trading with so collusion is out of the question. Any ideas about how to respond to this one on the old message board?

Tell the commish to lick your brown star and enjoy your deal.
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

that is a pretty terrible trade, and as long as the commish didnt veto it by himself its alright by me. he posted his opinion, trying to show others that it was a pretty bad deal.

This brings up the old argument about what is a vetoable trade. In my opinion, collusion is the only reason to veto a trade in a league with knowledgable owners. I play ball with most of these guys and they know what their doing. Although I don't know the guy who offered me this deal, he is currently in 5th place and has a solid team.

You are getting a killer deal, but let the managers manage their teams (especially when he needs both those players to fill needed positions).

As long as there are knowledgeable players the deals go through.

The arguement is so old that there is no point in starting it again.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I gotta say though, god that's a horrible deal. If I was in your league, I'd be P'd that you got that deal, but it's not really vetoable, I guess. Just irritating.

That is a horrible deal, and I don't have a problem with the commish questioning the deal. If he needs a 2B, surely he can do better than Biggio, and Millwood is avg at best. Veto's are probably the most controversial thing in fantasy sports. I don't like to veto, but trades like that should be IMO. I can't imagine anyone who knows what he's doing accepting/offering a trade like that. :-?

As long as the commish isn't vetoing it or encouraging a veto, I think it's fine. I'm a commish, and if a deal that dumb went through in my league, I'd probably post a good-natured "Boy, are you stupid!" message. He was a little harsh, but meh.

i thought it was semi-classy. He took the high road, and pointed out a crappy deal.

The commish is allowed to express his opinion you know.

I have to agree that it was likely the classiest thing he's had to say all year. Our message board has gotten downright nasty at times.

It's not a crappy deal for me. ;-D
