Use LM ban hammer on Harper for Trout?

Postby jcave24 » Mon May 20, 2013 2:17 am

10 team, 5x5 H2H league, OBP. The owner of trout is very difficult to reach to talk to for many of the other managers, as he is my cousin. He frequently leaves players out of his starting roster for weeks at a time while having DL'd players in his lineup.

When I asked the Harper owner, he provided me with Facebook conversations with both the Trout owner and his brother, another owner in the league. Though the trout owner was non-responsive, the message to the brother asked what he would like for trout in a deal in which Harper was included. He responded that the trout owner would do the 1 for 1, which he then sent over and was accepted.

It seems possible that the translation of the message may not have included that the Harper owner was willing to give up more than just Harper, otherwise I feel as though he would've asked for more in return for Trout.

Is this a trade that I can rightfully veto, or should I leave this one up to the league to decide? Full on investigation, I know. Sorry if this is all convoluted, but I seem to have a real dilemma on my hands.

I'm having a little trouble following the telephone game going on here, but what's your issue, really? That the Trout owner gave him up for less than he could have gotten from the other owner? Sorry, it was a trade that was offered and accepted. Everything else is hearsay, and I would not be inserting yourself into the middle of it because you don't know the whole story.

theres nothing wrong with the actual trade.

If you're trying to veto the trade because of personal politics, that's different and an abuse of Commissioner power

Both are elite talents can't really veto that trade honestly.
