If it harms ANYONE in the league, it's unfair. Doesn't matter if a majority wants to change it. Ever hear of tyranny of the majority? Gotta protect the little guy as well.
Even if you were tanking games, that doesn't matter. Under the current rules, that would be a valid strategy. That's not against the current rules. Don't say that to them of course, but tell them bringing up your tanking games is sidestepping the issue and beside the point. How you're playing has nothing to do with whether it's OK to change rules. Don't even defend yourself. Just tell them it doesn't matter.
You conducted yourself, including your keeper trade, under a given set of rules. Changing them after the fact hurts you. Maybe you said "OK, this deal works for me next year, and if I happen to lose more games because I stink this year, my draft pick goes higher." Maybe that was the thing that finally sold you on that trade. For them to change the rules after that trade is unfair.
Fine to change the rule, but not until next year.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

Yep, your league can switch to that rule, but shouldn't until the 2008 draft.
