    Trading an injured player

    One owner accepted a trade sending Emilio Bonifacio for Rafael Betancourt right after Bonifacio injured himself and is out for the season. Veto worthy? I think it's #$%$

    • Call or e-mail the Betancourt owner. Ask if he knew Bonifacio was injured when the trade was made. If the Betancourt owner says he knew Bonifacio was injured, no cancel. If he did not know, then ask if he wants it cancelled, and go by what he says. Only cancel trades between two willing partners when there is evidence of collusion, dumping, cheating, or one of the parties does not know a player is injured. Keep those criteria in mind, and talk to managers, and you will make the right decision.
