I agree with the 'time will tell' philosophy.
Furthermore, you must consider the players that teab 'b' shall have to drop to make room on his roster.
It is typical for fools to manage themselves right out of contention. The only time a veto should be exercised is if there is a shady deal (collusion) going on between a team that is out of the running w/ a contender.
should NOT be veteoed, it a clear case of quantity for quality. It also may fill in particular needs for unbalanced rosters/top heavy rosters. if every trade is clearcut even and not based on 'needs', whats the point of trading?
Its definitely an uneven trade (sorry).
Look at that trade and ask urself this q: even if u perform a "skim" (losing some guys to make the roster even). Team a is getting more value then team b.
Mind u barely-but still
Veto......................... Trades are suppose to be equal value for equal value... both sides should be trying to improve their team. I don't mind allowing a trade that is a little lopsided, especially if a team higher in the standings gives up something extra to a team lower in the standings... team 2 will end up with 4 stars and team 1 only 2 star players...
Lots of managers don't think trades where one side gets many players and the other gets few are ever fair. It's almost like the specific individuals in the deals become unimportant to the number of them. I don't do that but I've seen it many times.
I am not saying that this trade is unfair, although, I wouldn't have accepted either side of it personally. If you took Zimmerman out of it it's a very fair deal. Or maybe if you took Gallardo out. But all that said, I still wouldn't have given a veto.
