It is wrong to do it in deals that are not fair. Someone trades Dunn for Finley, it should get vetoed. Someone trades Hrs for SBs or pitching or whatever fairly to hurt the first place team...why not?

By hurting other teams not involved, you're improving your team, so I see absolutely no problem with it.

Yahoo wrote:To this end, each Public League fantasy team owner (Private Leagues are controlled solely by the league commissioner) agrees that, by joining the game, they will abide by the following regulations:
All league-related transactions will be executed with the intent of improving the owner's team and/or its standing within the league.
No owner may drop or dump players from their team for any reason other than improving their own team and/or its standing within the league.
No owner will engage in any action that may be deemed to be collusive (two or more owners agreeing to make moves that benefit one team, but not the other).
No owner will make any roster moves (including waiver claims, trade proposals, etc.) whose sole purpose is to hamper the play of other owners.
No owner will take any action whose purpose is to, in any way, interfere with fair play in a league.
Here are the official Yahoo rules, it's perfectly ethical:
