The trade is not lopsided by itself. I think what makes it appear lopsided is that many would say the upgrade from Kendrick to Uggla is not a huge upgrade.

As far as what you can do? There really is nothing you can do except write back and thank him for his note and if more managers protest you will take their protests in consideration.

I say no way can you disallow this. It is not even near vetoable.

One thing though, since sole veto power lies with you, if you have a habit of vetoing a lot of trades in the league, then perhaps this owner is doing this to spite you, and you might deserve it.

If you have set a precedent of vetoing very rarely or never, then you are in the clear.

What you should do is have a mechanism in place for when it's your own trades, either have the league vote or designate a deputy commish who will do all the rulings on your trades, and then a second deputy in the case that the trade is between you and the first guy.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

It is so frustrating to deal with people like this.

Dude, there is nothing wrong with that trade...nothing. I Can't stand it when I have to trade based on another persons value of my player.

Honestly, if this trade has a hard time going through I don't even want to know what other trades are debatable.

I think Parra is going to be great this year btw...

This is definitely not a vetoable trade.

However, you need to have a system in place for when you are involved in the trades.

Since this is the first trade of a new league and you have received a complaint, I would probably first allow the league to vote on this trade. Secondly right after the vote I would install, with input from the league, some system of reviewing trades you are involved in. If you don't, it sounds like this maybe a very long year.

Disagree. As long as you are consistent you will be fine. You don't need to set up a different set of rules for you if everyone in the league is competitive. Personally, if you can trust everyone in the league and everyone in the league knows what they are doing, I would say only veto trades that show obvious collusion. That rule should take care of any issues that may happen. I don't participate in leagues with commissioners who are really strict on trades and try to, in their own mind, keep the league balanced. Therefore, I don't think a commissioner should have to justify his trade.
