That's BS. Sometimes you have to shoot down trades that will kill the integrity of the league. This trade would have obviously done that and if it had gone through then I wouldn't be joining that league next year cause obviously not enough of the owners give a crap. (not that I'm in that league)
As for the trade at topic, I wouldn't veto this trade just because of what the gentleman that started this thread said. The Commish would have some explaining to do had he vetoed this trade and Patterson did end up with a sub 3 ERA and a K/IP. You have to take chances in FBB to win in most leagues and this is a chance he is willing to take. Furcal isn't a top teir SS so if he has a backup SS worthy than the chance he is taking really isn't that bad.
BTW, where players are drafted does not matter. The value of a player changes drastically when the games start...
Barry Bonds for US president.
