Here is a quote of this provision of the league rules:
" A trade shall attempt to have benefit for both teams. This seems obvious, but alas, nothing is obvious in this League. If a trade is made and is determined that the sole purpose was to advance one team with no regard for the other, then the trade will immediately be declared void by the [commissioner], and if necessary, the Executive Committee, and even the Committee of the Whole. Remember that we do not legislate stupidity, only evil."
Obviously, I don't think this trade fits that provision.
Important information to know. How does he decide who is "overrated"? Is the other person involved in the trade so clueless that he needs the protection? Has the other person email the commissioner to explain why he believes he's getting due compensation?
