Unfortunately, this seems like it could be a fatal blow to your league, at least for this season. No matter what you do people are going to feel like it was compromised.
The only way I can think of to level the playing field is to make every other team drop one of their keepers. Then hold a lottery to set a new waiver order. Then everyone is dealing with the same level of adversity that the guy who got screwed is. Still FAR from ideal; in fact, it sucks. And good luck convincing the league anyway.
Sorry, because that's really unfortunate.
This is why I suggested the commish's team should bear the brunt of the punishment. It's clear he's the one who screwed up. It's his responsibility. He needs to fall on his sword here. The guy who kept Pena should have a choice between taking a player off the commish's team or taking Pena. If he takes Pena, the other dude gets to take a player from the commish. Give the commish waiver priority one right now as a consolation, as well as a promise that you won't hire someone to kick his a**.
I'd agree with this, assuming that the guy who kept Pena alerted the commissioner before the season started (or very soon after). If the guy who should have Pena didn't even realize it until the end of Week 2, he has to take some of the blame.
Luckily for me, CBS sportsline takes care of letting people declare their own keepers so I wouldn't run into this problem.
