Veto (This has to be an attempt at league manipulation)

Postby MrNerd93 » Wed Jun 10, 2009 5:42 pm

All right. I can't see how this isn't tampering, but I don't like vetoing trades and I would like to check with you guys before I do.

Hanley Ramirez
Joe Mauer
Ichiro Suzuki
Raul Ibanez

for

Yadier Molina
Cristian Guzman
Adam Lind
Nelson Cruz
Joe Saunders

I am 95 % sure this should be vetoed
Thanks for the help.

Don't think twice about vetoing, that's awful.

Not a believer in vetoes, but this is one of those rare exceptions.

Worst player on the Hanley side is arguably better than best player on the Cruz side.

Yeah that one can get shot down under the "integrity of the league" clause.

I also am not a big believer in vetoes. That said, you need to ask the guy giving Hanley etc how he thinks that this could better his team. If he cannot come up with a plausible and thorough reason, the trade needs to be stopped. Let the owner know that a reasoning of "this is my team and I can manage it however I want" on its own will not be an adequate reason for you to allow the deal.
