Whoever is losing Greinke is getting a horrible deal. 8-o

If you are getting Greinke do this immediately.

Lohse is not as good as his early numbers indicated (look at his last two starts).

Furcal has been garbage with only 3 sbs and now he's lost the lead-off spot to pierre (who is blazing the world apart) and he has lost manny who drove him in.

Pretty sketchy looking. Any more details that might show collusive intent by the owners involved?

Fair, probably not. Vetoable, no.
It appears one team needs a SS, and is moving a great pitcher for a high/mid-tier SS and #3-5 SP.

almost everyone here will say that its only vetoable if there is collusion, but I disagree. This trade is horrible and should be vetoed. It's that bad.

I don't think its a good deal, but its not vetoable, and I'm usually one vouching for vetoes. I assume that the team trading for Furcal desperately needs a SS and if that's the case, you shouldn't interfere.

I have no idea who would want to trade Greinke, considering how he's pitched all year so far. I wouldn't even entertain the thought of dealing him if it were me. Or if I did, I would want a lot more than just Furcal and Lohse that's for sure!!! :-o

it's a crap deal for who is giving Zach up but not worth a veto.

Top-3, probably #1 players--not pitcher, PLAYER-- for an overachiever of a SP and an underachieving SS? Veto-worthy for sure. Not everything has to be collusion to be vetoed. Sometimes, things need vetoed just to protect the overall competitiveness of the league.
