Team A gets TROUT, G. Jones and Holland
Team B gets Kimbrel, ROdney and Valverde
IMO Team A is completely ripping off Team B agreed?
Keeper its auto veto. Redraft still might be veto. Id look at the circumstances a little. Is B trading to improve his team? I will use veto's if i think someone isnt trading with their teams interest in mind (i.e. could be giving up, dumping players, hooking up a buddy). So it depends on the circumstances. Is he losing saves every week and locking up SB's every week. Thats about the only circumstance i could see it make sense is if his offense is stacked with fast guys and he has no closers.
I am going to agree a bit with Quackman in that more details would have really helped. Is it a H2H or Roto scoring? What are the categories scored? Where in the standings are these two teams? Is this a keeper or dynasty league and if so how many keepers can teams have? Is this a contract league....are there money issues that need to be taken into account? What is the makeup of both rosters?
All of the above questions I had are pertinent to deciding if you really have a veto. I know we all love Trout but if this is a roto league and the team can make up 8-10 points in saves while helping his k's, era, and whip if he is contending for a title that is a big difference than saying he is a team at the bottom of the standings with no other talent around him. Also it matters what the rosters look like. If the team moving Trout already has McCutchen, Heyward, and Braun in his outfield maybe this trade makes some sense. I am always hesitant in general to just scream veto and even more so without looking at the big picture. We need to remember that Kimbrel is a top 2 closer, Rodney has been pitching all year like a top 5 closer, and Valverde still is getting saves for a contender in Detroit.
In closing I really have a lot more questions you have yet to answer to really understand if this is a veto in your league.
