veto this trade?

I let uneven trades go, but this just seems awful. The guy getting Granderson is making the trade with his little brother.

Curtis Granderson for Desmond Jennings and Carlos Marmol

I would definitely not veto that. I could see the guy getting Jennings thinking he is getting a guy that might put up similar numbers, plus he's buying low on a former top closer.

I don't think I would trade my Granderson for those two, but I don't think it's anywhere near veto range IMO.

I'll agree that it's probably not veto worth. If it's a keeper or something I would actually like the Jennings side more.

It's a bad trade IMO but not bad enough to suspect collusion, so no.

Jennings has 4 homers already and 4 sb and has a very realistic shot at 25/25 this year albeit a 260 avg. He's very good and Marmol is crappy but high k's, this deserves no veto.

If both sides are ok with it then you have to let it happen. I raise an eyebrow only because they are related. Big brother didn't hack into his little bro's account and do the deal or take on extra household chores to make the deal happen or anything, right? Not like you could prove it but something to be concerned about if another trade goes through. But other than that, you can't veto this.

I would have vetoed it and I do not care what potential Jennings has. A few weeks into the season and teh guy trades a top 3 round player for Jennings and Marmol? It is laughable.

My that theory you would have to allow trading MCab for Cody Ross and Guerra? Or Pujols for Reimold and Walden?
