I am positive about two things (well 3 if you count that I'm positive the trade is terrbile)1)there is 100% zero collusion involved and 2)the guy getting Young knows what he's doing or at least did until this point. I sent him an email saying that I was shocked that he made the deal and felt he could have gotten more for Fielder ( I was going to give him Hamels but had no room for Fielder so he had an idea of Fielder's value). He responded that in hindsight he thinks maybe he was too eager. It was just dumb all around on his side because the Young owner came to him first offering Atkins/Meche for Fielder and he countered asking for Young straight up, so his loss. Thanks again guys.
This is why I hate Vetos altogether. No offense to you, but your initial reaction to this trade was a veto consideration, based partially on the fact that he turned down what you felt was a better deal from you. While I dont think you were motivated by any sense of jealousy in considering a veto, there is little doubt your own needs/values played a part in your reaction.
