Yeah, I just posted in your thread as well! haha
I'll give you an example of a trade last year from a post I made in my league yesterday...
"I remember last year. It was not so long ago. Del traded Halladay for Webb and Prior (or was it Woods). The whole league was in an uproar. "Veto that trade! No way is that trade fair! You don't trade Halladay for someone like Webb. Prior is on the DL!"
Only one person outside of that trade said that by the end of the year, at best, it would be a wash between Webb and Halladay. Prior, of course, never amounted to anything. How was Halladay's year last year compared to Webb's?
Halladay: 16-5 132 K 3.19 ERA 1.10 WHIP
Webb: 16-8 178K 3.10 ERA 1.13 WHIP
Who got the better deal? Still think whoever got Halladay in the trade came out better? Imagine if Prior amounted to anything that season. Del, what the hell were you thinking trading Halladay?!?"
The first year we did a baseball league, vetoing was by vote. I was in first place at the time and made what was an even trade. VETOED!!! I asked why a few times with no response...except for "you're in first". A couple days later, the owner I was trading with traded the same players to someone else for what I think was a little less in return. That trade was allowed. Leaving it up to a vote just doesn't work. Leaving it up to the commission makes for some hard decisions. It was recommended to me to have two commissioners for the league so that if one is involved in a trade, the other can be impartial. That works unless both commissioners are involved in a trade. Three commissioners?
