I'm commish in a competitive yahoo 12 team H2H league (R, HR, SB, BB, K, AVG- W, L, CG, SV, K, WHIP, ERA) with league veto, not commish. I've personally had two trades of some caliber this year, and there has been some uproar from a few teams about them - because they were my trades and I'm therefore a bit biased, I wanted to get some outside advice on them...
First trade was earlier in the season, mid-June. I gave Greinke/Ethier, got Morneau/BJ Upton. Greinke was dominating, Ethier was hot, Morneau was damn good, and Upton was cold. The owner I traded with had been quite inactive, but in shopping Greinke around, he was one that bit. The manager has since been very inactive, which led some managers to question the trade - I was hoping it would get him more involved and active in the league, but it didn't.
The most recent trade, that sparked the uproar, was between me in 2nd place and a team in 4th. I gave C. Lee, Reyes, Kendrick, and Kuroda, I got Kinsler, Rollins, Bruce (DL) and J. Zimmermann (DL).
So basically, I'm just looking for some input - regardless of rosters and needs, I know - but 2 managers called these trades "slimy, lopsided, suspicious, disgusting, and nauseating." I think they're definitely acceptable trades, but want some others insight - are they right?
Thanks for any input - WHIR!
