It could be argued Johnson is more valuable than Atkins if the need is 2B & not 3B... Hudson has the track record and better team over Meche... Ramirez is better than Dye (particularly with Dye's slow start), but their statistics last year indicate not by a mile... Ortiz is better than Delgado, but Delgado is certainly not the worst 1B in baseball and (depending on your league) Ortiz may be DH only.

Vetoing trades should be only in cases where it can not be argued that one team gets any value. This can easily be argued. One side gets pitching & a 2B, the other gets the two best bats and a 3B. I think the Manny & Ortiz side gets the better of it, but the other side can certainly claim they are getting value back.

It's pretty bad, I would say it's marginally vetoable depending on the circumstances.
