should I disallow this deal?

Postby MasterX1918 » Wed Jun 25, 2008 4:20 pm

the trade is this:

team A gets:
Ichiro
Jimmy Rollins

team B gets:
Alex Gordon
Kosuke Fukudome

I'm the commish and I have the ability to disallow trades. I don't usually like to veto deals but this one is abnormally unfair. Is this veto-able?

edit-to shed some light on the situation, Team A is in last place and is doing a firesale by offering unfair trades to teams around the league.

Is this a keeper? But yeah, very unfair trade a bit less so if it's a keeper but I'd probably zap this trade anyway.

Probably even less fair in a keeper. It's Jimmy Rollins after all.

Where it is known that team A is doing a firesale, no way this should go. Nor should this owner come back next year.

team A has stated that he's dissatisfied with his team and wants to dismantle it for some reason. He's offering unfair trades to teams around the league (like Jermaine Dye for Delmon Young) and I told him that I won't allow it since the season is only half over and anything can happen, but he insists that it's his choice and he should be able to do whatever he wants with his team. Team B has also taken this stand and has put up a stink with my authority since I rejected the trade. Both of the teams keep telling me that I have no right to prevent a trade from happening just because on paper it is unfair. Needless to say am I right for not letting the trade pass, even though both teams want it to go through? (other teams around the league are also objecting the deal).

Team A is not allowed to complete a trade if he doesn't think it's improving his team. If this were a keeper league, a dump trade is fine because he's playing for next year. He's basically admitting that he's given up, and he's admitting these trades stink. Most public sites have rules for this. For example, here are the yahoo rules:

1. All league-related transactions will be executed with the intent of improving the owner's team and/or its standing within the league.
2. No owner may drop or "dump" players from their team for any reason other than improving their own team and/or its standing within the league.
3. No owner will engage in any action that may be deemed to be collusive (two or more owners agreeing to make moves that benefit one team, but not the other).

So if this is yahoo, tell Team A to stick that in his pipe and smoke it.
