I really need some opinions on this thread ASAP. This is causing quite a stir in our league and it is threatening to hurt it a lot.

Help me out, I'll help you.

If you're looking for an opinion on the trade, it is very, very, one sided, on the surface.

There is room for debate on this though. There's no guarantee that Crawford will hit like he has all season nor Baez remain the closer. If any of these scenarios play out and Fullmer or Hunter break out in a big way then it could swing the trade to the Fullmer/Hunter side. I'm a big Crawford guy, though, and I find that the Fullmer/Hunter side will even make it close doubtful. I don't know if I'd veto it, however, because there can be a case made for the other side. For league harmony, I'd let it pass.

actually it's already been vetoed. He's already threatening to quit.

As the commish I'd just like to know

1) whether our league which is very competitive has become too strict in vetoing such a trade (again, the rookie manager is getting the hunter/fullmer side)

2) What can I say to the player quitting to prove to him we are not trying to screw him and just trying to keep trades fair?

I see. I should read these things more carefully.

I actually had a very similar situation on one of my leagues just last week. What we did is just tell the guy we're a bunch of jackasses, which is true. He was dealing with one of the big dogs and we're all very sensitive when a deal is done with one of the big dogs. We explained it to him that way and he actually understood. Rookies need to understand that this is very important with a lot of people. Once they understand that they're usually fine.

It looks like an abused veto. If I were commish and I felt like that maybe the veto was the wrong thing to do, then I would probably tell the guys to do the trade again and make sure it goes through. Sometimes veto-power-hungry managers need a reality check when it comes to vetoing trades.
