should i veto this trade?

12 team keeper standard roto the following trade was made, Pujols for Kimbrel straight up, given their rankings where Pujols is low 1st round/high 2nd round compared to Kimbrel who's a 5th rounder at best should I veto this deal given the huge disparity in player level?

First instinct is always no don't veto it. I mean no it isn't a fair trade. I would just make sure and talk to the guy getting Kimbrel first and ask what is up.

It's not your job as commish to police trades to make sure they're fair.

I like the Pujols side of this trade, obviously, but if his owner is (a) stacked on bats and/or (b) concerned about Pujols's health, he might want to move him for the guy considered the best closer in the game right now.

I agree with comments already made. I don't think it's collusion - which to me is about the only grounds for a veto. Again it depends on make up of each team. Is one loaded with bats and in need of a closer and the other loaded with closers...
In many leagues I've seen worst trades go though over the years.

I wouldn't veto it either. Once the draft is over, you have to throw out the draft value. It comes down to needs and obviously, at this point, no one is tanking.
