I'm the Commissioner in an 8 team yahoo head to head league with standard scoring. We've got four active managers, two kinda active managers, and then two managers that rarely get on. This trade involves an active manager and a manager who rarely gets on.
Team A (active manager, 2nd place) Gives: Roy Halladay Michael Pineda Andre Ethier Jason Heyward
Team B (rarely active manger, last place 45 GB) Gives: Ryan Braun Andrew McCutchen Max Scherzer Anibal Sanchez

The trade got vetoed by league votes and team A thinks it was a fair trade. I'm looking to get some more opinions on it. What I don't understand is that team B got on to accept the trade, but then left JJ Putz who is on the DL in his lineup at RP. He also left two guys on the bench that were pitching the next day. It's like all he did was get on, accept the trade, and then didn't care about anything else. So what do you guys think?
Thanks, and I really appreciate it! Don't forget to leave your link!
The deal itself seems relatively fair. The fact that the manager is hardly ever on, managed to accept the trade, but not adjust his lineup is pretty fishy. Really is a tough call, however in terms of "fairness" the deal seems legit.

One team gives pitching, and the other gives hitting.
It all depends on what the league rewards more heavily. If it's a heavy hitters league, then it could be considered an unfair trade, especially since the guy that accepted is very inactive, and does not update his lineup ever.

This is not veto worthy. Although I'd probably prefer to have McCutchen and Braun I equally would rather have Halladay and Pineda. No sign of collusion here. Just a knucklehead that wants to stir the pot a bit. Tell your other managers to stop crying.
