I'd take Carpenter over Wells anyday.

Let me get this straight...the guy had a good draft (apparently), and employed a different strategy than the rest of the league to great success. And now, because he's been successful and is moving onto phase two of his strategy, you think the commissioner should punish him by forcing a lopsided trade where he doesn't get equal value for his players?
Do other people in your league have this same frame of mind?

Because there are some managers out there who can actually think like this. The guy adopts a perfectly valid strategy, and it pays off. He makes the league more interesting, because who wants 12 guys who all manage the same? So now it's time to punish him so that he never dares to innovate or succeed again. Enlightened thinking.
Check out "Atlas Shrugged" in the off-season. I've always thought it basically sucks, because no one in the real world actually thinks like the villains in this book. After reading this thread I'm thinking I gotta cut Ayn Rand some slack...
