I have to add one more thing, sorry.
From ESPN's Fantasy Baseball Rules:
The following are NOT sufficient reasons to veto a trade:
I changed my mind
Once you complete a trade, it's too late to change your mind. It's unfair to the other owner involved.
I will quit if this trade goes through
Sorry, this game is not about blackmail. We can't let statements like these make our decisions for us.
My little brother/mom/dog hit the button by accident
It is your responsibility to keep your account access away from irresponsible people or pets.
The owners have the same e-mail address
Collusion is against the rules. Sharing an account is not. Please have some amount of proof before you accuse another owner in your league of collusion.
A player is injured AFTER the trade was accepted
As long as the player was healthy when the trade was made, we consider the trade to be in 'good faith'.
So-and-so is a proven veteran - how can you trade him for a rookie?
We see this often. We judge a trade on how likely we think it is that it will help a team. If each team has a decent possibility to improve, we'll OK it.
Reasons the League Office will consider vetoing a trade:
Both owners involved ask us to cancel
Simple enough - no explanation needed.
On rare occasions, collusion is very evident. We'll veto these automatically.
A recently injured player is involved, and the trade occurred right after the injury
This is to protect an owner who leaves an offer on the table, that is snatched up by an unscrupulous trading partner right after an injury is announced.
We feel the trade is extremely unlikely to help one of the teams
This is the most controversial responsibility of the League Office. Usually, no matter what the final decision is, one or more owners will be unhappy. The decisions are not personal. They are informed decisions made by a panel of ESPN.com experts and are based on empirical data and statistics. If, in the League's judgement, both teams have a reasonable chance to improve their position through the trade, and the trade is being made in good faith, the League Office will approve the trade. The people who review trades are ESPN.com experts who watch hundreds of Major League games a year, either on TV or in person. They also examine stats, both past and present. Many owners automatically protest a trade if a "big name" player is involved - however, fantasy value can differ (sometimes greatly) from real value or reputation. The decisions are often very close. The panel's responsibility is to make the most informed decision it can, based on the data available when it reviews the protest.
Well...the trade was accepted tonight. I am not sure if that was before or after the injury...I believe after...the times are nearly identical, which leads me to believe that the dude might've been watching the game. If it was accepted before the injury, I'll have to take it. But, I don't think it was...I would've cancelled if I could've. Did the guy who posted this post ASAP? For my sake...I hope not...
