Bob-in-TX articulates maybe the best argument I've heard about keeping league integrity, however, like most only leagues (I think), our NL-only league allows stats to be counted by the player newly traded to oblivion (the AL).  Maybe the difference is what brought about this change for us.  It was the reverse screwball.  Star players coming into the NL and suddenly giving a huge lift to a team where the method for acquisition is pretty subjective depending on the point in the season it happens (a team might have more FAAB money because they've been fortunate with injuries or they were just plain lazy).  For us, it was the "Sheffield" rule.  In 1992, Gary Sheffield got traded from the Brewers to the Padres on March 26th for Ricky Bones, Matt Mieske, and Jose Valentin.  This happened just a few days after our auction.  So, he was available for FAAB bids.  Several teams bid the maximum and he was awarded via the tie-breaker - and that team reaped the rewards: .330/33/100/5 - and won the championship because of it.  The next year we decided to make any player who was on an AL team (or its system) at the time of the auction ineligible.  Second, players traded to the AL kept their stats, but could not be traded or put on the Reserve List - they had to stay active or be released and all retention rights for the player are lost.  It's worked great for us, and any static generated by "created" stats has been far outweighed by reducing unanticipated heartache and stat loss over players getting traded out of the blue to the "other" league - plus the reverse - a huge windfall decided by the much more arbitrary FAAB.

I agree with Jeff and will add that fantasy baseball is meant (in my mind) to mimic MLB. We are GMs and we can trade etc.  Losing a player to the other league is like a player getting traded off our team but we were not in on the decision and get little or no return (some leagues don't have FAAB, just a waiver ranking or don't compensate for lost players) -- which makes no sense.  Since we can control this, our NL league changed to allow stats to be kept quite some time ago.  We have enough guesswork with gauging injury risk and when MLB teams will call up prospects etc.

I think that minor effect on draft day considerations is LESS distorting than a major player getting traded out of the league mid-season when the owner gets baubles and beads for him (a/k/a FAAB dollars).  Not all mid-seasons trades are foreseeable.

I disagree, Jeff.  The issue is that an AL only league that allows stats to accrue for players traded to the NL is allowing for the "creation" of counting stats like wins or saves.  Take the Aroldis Chapman trade from the Yankees to the Cubs last year.  If stats carry over, that single trade "created" 17 saves out of thin air - the number of saves that Chapman got as a Cubbie. Betances took over as NYY closer, and got like 10-12 saves.   And so the value of saves is diluted overall if Chapman's stats carry over.  In close counting categories like saves, that can determine a title outcome.  Plus it takes away from draft considerations like reducing your bid amount for a guy that is obvious trade bait.

When interleague play started, any argument against keeping the stats of a player traded to the other league became moot. My two most expensive leagues(sister AL and NL Only) don't allow players that are in the other league on draft day to be bid on at all, thus making the initial draft that much more important.

Most leagues change this rules when the numbers of owners who have been screwed by the "you don't keep the stats" rule gets higher than the number of those supporting the status quo.  Self-interest is everything.

We too have climate deniers in the ADL. Chief among them is Walter, who thinks interleague play is a hoax.

We changed this a few years back; now, you get to keep the traded player's stats for the current year, but he can't be traded in our league, or kept for the next year.  One less thing to worry about.

Same as the two Mikes, although one owner has been proposing a rule change to count stats of players dealt to the the void (NL) for the past decade or longer.  His high water mark was last year.  He got 5 votes in favor of the rule change.  

The same owner proposes no keepers every year too.  That may affect his credibility on the traded players rule.

My AL-only league doesn't allow you to keep players traded out. Just like mike's league does, you get the FAAB back for the player's salary.
