I have to agree here.
It prevents collusion. Also, I have brought in managers who have never played fantasy baseball before and they are prime targets to get "trade raped." I think a majority plus one of those not involved is a good rule, 24 hour wait.
If a manager is too busy to vote, then they shouldn't be playing. Most leagues I have been in send an email to all managers notifying them that a trade has been accepted. All it takes is five minutes to go online and vote on it.
It is also interesting to see the different opinions on each trade. Generally, I have found that no one vetos unless it really is a bad trade, and certainly never seen a reasonable trade get vetoed out of spite.
People ask me what I do in winter when there's no baseball. I'll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring. ~Rogers Hornsby
