Worth a veto? WHIR

I run a 10 Team H2H 5x5 Keeper League (we keep 6 per year)...Team A is trading Robinson Cano to Team B for Harper and Seager...

Is this worth vetoing? Team A has already traded away David Wright for Ethier and Jennings (which seems lopsided too)...I know there is no collusion, but seems like this guy is giving away players...I would like some advice b/c I may be wrong about all of this, just need advice...Teams listed below...and Thanks!

You said it's a keeper league. Harper and Seager can be VERY VERY valuable in the future so I say not worth a veto.

A veto has to be VERY, VERY lopsided. What you have is fairly even. Harper is going to be an Albert Pujols type player in two years. The trade stands.

If i dont think a team is making a trade to "improve" his team then i consider a veto. Sometimes people give up,,dont care, hooking up a buddy whatever. Keeper league so there is no way you can say he isnt trying to improve his team. Especially if he is out of it this year, this is exactly the type of trade the guy should make.

Don't see an issue with this one, Team A just seems to be shaking it up on the deals

To me, it seems that team A has a scarce amount of keepers as it is, so this might actually be worth it for him to make this trade. As such, I definitely do not think the trade is worth vetoing.

Not to mention that, as the first poster said, a trade should usually be quite lopsided for a commish to veto it; its a bit different when the league members are voting on the veto, but you have to be careful not to extend the "long arm of the law" too far in the course of trying to keep the league fair; that's how you lose league members.

Take a look at my proposed scoring system?
