Owners answer to the fans. If the fans do not like a move, they will not show up. But its a real pandora's box to start veto'ing trades because one side won. Such a bad idea.

The ONLY time a trade should be veto'd is if 2 owners were colluding/conspiring together.
It wasn't a trade, but the commissioner nixed the White Sox adding Minnie Minoso to the roster in 1990.
