    um...Juan Gonzalez, and by all accounts, a healthy Juan Gonzalez, was added to the trade from the Schilling side, but the deal was still vetoed......?????

    I have only seen one or two managers on the league message board speak out against the deal, and no where has anyone shown that they are getting angry at the managers involved. Can you please show me some evidence to back up what you're saying KYRedsFan?

    Can you provide the number of, and names of the teams that voted to veto the deal?

    Contact the commish. This issue has been settled in our league. I'm done dealing with it on this forum.

    Juan Gone and Schilling for Thome and Smoltz? What's wrong with that? Wow...

    That is a fair deal. It seems like an abuse of power to veto that trade.

    I agree Johnny, and since I'm the Betty Crocker Boys, the team that everyone seems to think is getting hosed, I don't understand how it could be seen as not being fair.

    Now apparently Curt Schilling and Ellis Burks for John Smoltz and Jim Thome is an unfair trade.


    I f$%^ing give up...

    I'm glad I'm not in this league.

    the only time a commissioner should ever veto a trade is if it's obvious conspiracy. If there is no payout for winning, then a trade should never be vetoed unless it's on the line of Juan Castro for A-Rod.

    This is a clear abuse of power.
