I hate to use this cliche i see all over this board, but if your in a league where someone will flat out drop holliday, who has been one of the best producers to date in any format, and is widely considered a 2nd round draft pick, you might want to consider finding another league. If someone in my league dropped holliday and someone else picked him up, I would automatically assume that it was collusion, because no owner actually trying to win, and not actively cheating would drop a player like that.
But if it's just a trade you don't think is even... so what? That happens in real baseball, and the other owners can't veto. I don't see why my - or your - deals should be subject to the whims of other people, especially since they're not objective parties.

Comparing a salary dump in real baseball to a lopsided trade in a non-keeper league isn't fair, IMHO. 2 totally different things.
