Yup, it's a part of the trade, just like you can't change the players you're getting or sending to the other team.
Sure but the drop isn't particularly relevant to everyone else. It would be a matter of convenience, considering there is a waiting period for trades processing. If it processed instantaneously, it would be a non-issue. I liken it to being able to change your mind on who to drop when posting a waiver claim. In either case, it isn't a big deal. Kinsler is coming off the DL like 2 days after it processes anyhow so I'll have another 2B. I'm just saying I'm not gaining a competitive advantage by changing my mind on the roster balancing element of the transaction.
The trade is the part that is everyone else's business, the drop is my own business.
But after you accept the trade, it gets posted to everyone. So, the player you chose to drop becomes relevant if someone that sees the trade wants to use their waiver priority to pick him up.
