A lot of folks say you should never veto a trade, but this is unbelievably one-sided. Unless closers are extremely valuable in your league. I would have to veto it.

help with mine please:

This quite possibly might be the worst trade i have ever seen accepted in a fantasy baseball league. Are the people playing in the league all deaf, blind and stupid?? They must be for that trade to go through in any league. YOU MUST VETO THIS TRADE COMMISH!

as commissioner i think you have to defer to the judgments of the individual owners.

this trade does raise an eyebrow. maybe you should investigate possible tom-foolery. i think that's within commish powers/duties. i'm talking specifically about collusion/quid pro quo arrangement.

otherwise, i think you should just ask whether there is a plausible purpose/logic/justification/whatever behind the trade. here, the argument could be that peavy and beachy might die any day and the owner wants to unload this risk and help out his crappy closer situation. this might explore the boundaries of a plausible reason, but i don't think it's implausible. absent evidence of collusion or other shenanigans, i think you should let this one go. and the two owners involved have voiced support. to do so suggests that each owner believes the trade will benefit him.

it is a horrible trade and I would vote to veto.

BUT....i'd put it up to a simple majority vote of your league. Also, in really bad trades like this, i'd kinda like to hear the two teams defend it.
