I hate to veto a trade, but there is no way someone would make this trade with any rational reasoning. I think its safe to say their is something wrong here

That's a terrible trade. If your league has "training wheels" veto rules (voting, or comish evaluates "value" or something) then it should get vetoed. If both managers are trying to improve their team it's a fair trade - can't argue. But I can't think of any reason the side giving up Hamilton and Cano could possibly give for that improving their team. Duensing and Damon are borderline rosterable in a 10 team mixer. You could almost certainly get comparable players off the WW.

This trade reeks of either collusion or screw-the-noob. Ask the player getting Duensing and Damon how he thinks the trade helps his team.

I wasnt aware we were no longer reviewing if a trade should be vetoed here in the commish corner thread, when did this change and where is it located?

Commish corner description on the main baseball board index: "Come on in and discuss league problems, rules, settings, or anything else relating to league management right here."

DTKW: "Looking for opinions on trade offers?"

Trade vetos questions, while their answers are almost always obvious and don't need to be asked around here anyway, should always be DTKW fodder IMO, since you are literally looking for an opinion on a trade and nothing more.

Commish corner would be a better home if you have determined a trade to be vetoable becasue of provable collusion, which then caused a stink in the league and you didn't know how to handle it, etc. Other than that, it's more for league settings questions, how to manipulate/maneuver through different fantasy sites' LM tools, etc. as far as most of us are concerned.

Hope this helps ;-D

Wasnt a trade offer, accepted trade that caused some controversey. I would say a Trade Offer ceases to be once accepted?

Hate to be a pain but ive been a round for a while and If the commish corner's no longer going to be used for this thats fine IF it comes to that actual decision being made but have to speak up for its years of usage in this way while its being questioned/debated. Very very valuable to ahve this here I would say ;-D

Have you seen how busy DTKW is? I worry about people jumping in saying "dont take this offer" when its an accepted trade or the like
