Selig's never seen a big trade he didn't like.

I'm starting to wonder... Has it literally been since 1976 when Major League Baseball last intervened in a huge payroll-shedding trade where an owner effectively blew a team up? That was the Oakland A's owner Charley Finley. MLB Commissioner Bowie Kuhn vetoed an attempt by Oakland Ass owner Charlie Finley to sell Vida Blue to the New York Yankees while Finley was trying to sell much of that whole dynastic team off. Of course, Kuhn was probably as motivated by revenge as anything else, since Finley had tried to organize as many owners as possible to dislodge Kuhn from his throne the previous year.
