Vetoing kills trading in leagues and should never be used unless it is obvious collusion. This trade may seem a little one sided but just because someone gets a really good deal and you are jealous doesn't constitute a veto. This is one thing that is really dumb in these leagues.
Grandy is a borderline 1st rounder. Detweiller pitching well but who is this guy. I own JD bice player but on Houston plus there is not that much pop there. Not many sb's. Grandy is a major upgrade for 2 droppable guys. What ruins leagues is trades like this. Why do u think the dude wants Grandy....Cuz he is selling high on the other 2 and he found a sucker.

I don't disagree that this is a really good deal for the grandy side. Ruining the league is a bit of a stretch. My point is that you'd be vetoing just because you didn't find the sucker first....if you could make that deal wouldn't you have loved it?
My opinion is that all trades should be allowed, unless there is obvious collusion. Why should you protect the fish from the sharks? Survival of the fittest! When a trade gets vetoed it just leaves a sour taste in the parites mouths who were involved in the trade, making it that much more likely they will veto future trades. Vetoing begets Vetoing. Let Free Trade Rule!
There's my PSA for the day.
