    Veto Problems

    No. 5 is questionable, but as a commissioner of two leagues I keep the veto power and have never vetoed a trade. Why? Because in all but a few cases of collusion or outright stupidity people can justify why they make certain trades. Some trade players doing quite well now for those whom they believe will come on later. Some will trade players based on past performances. Heck, the first two weeks of the season Chone Figgins was the best thing around since sliced bread, while Pujols of the Angels took weeks to get warm. To me that trade would not have made sense based on past performaces, but you know what? Sometimes players do have career years or, like Rickie Weeks this year, poor seasons that defy their past. In addition, owners not involved in trades are only interested in making sure that their teams don't get surpassed in terms of talent. One other thing: there are very few "totally even" trades. That is the nature of the beast. Change your settings and if people leave, tell them you'll miss them and find other owners. There are no shortages of guys and gals looking to join leagues.
