I told him make the guy a fair offer and you won't see me post on the league board. I also said if the trade had been made to one of the veterans in the league I would also not protest on league board nor would I veto.

Ellsbury could break his leg tomorrow night. Swisher could hit 35 dingers and score 100 runs. Rodney could save 45 games. Sure, none are likely, but we can't know for sure what is going to occur in the future. Unless the new guy is a 10 year old, the trade should have gone through, IMO.

And there is a such thing as a bad trade. If I'm in a money league and some n00b accepts a REALLY bad trade without any good reasoning, you bet your ass I want to see it vetoed, collusion or not. I'm not one to manage other guy's teams, no matter how incompetent I think they are, but there's a certain point where it infringes on the integrity of the league at large. Ideally we all play in leagues full of sane veteran experts who never make dumb trades, but unfortunately that's not always the reality of the situation.
