It is wrong to do it in deals that are not fair. Someone trades Dunn for Finley, it should get vetoed. Someone trades Hrs for SBs or pitching or whatever fairly to hurt the first place team...why not?
Of course! it's just a different set of ethics. I prefer to play by my estimation of how good players are in the categories we select. Except in narrow trial i don't want to game the system by manipulating the rules. I want to win by picking the best set of players...winning by other means is...well...winning by other means.
simple enough I would think. An ethical question too, I would think, after all, what are we buying into? A machiavellian experiment? Or a fanatasy baseball league? Do your mates understand that you'll manipulate the rules to the Nth degree? Do they know THAT is the game? not the picking ofgood players? If they don't, then it is a serious ethical question. Do I screw my mates to get my jollies? Pretty obvious answer there ethically.
