Someone can verbally or via email offer you a proposal, you can accept but until the originator says done/confirms it, it is not completed. People change their minds all the time...I have no problem with that.
If I make an offer to a team, I stand by it. If I am not positive I want to do the deal, my email may say "are you interesting something like player A for player B" so as not to lock myself into those players and to start up negotiations.
Consider this hypothetical situation - Team A offers you clemens for Carlos lee and after negotiations to try to get an OFer along with clemens, Team A tells you the deal has to be Clemens for Lee. You then tell Team A you have to think about it and a couple hours later you send them an email agreeing to the deal. At this point you don't care if Team A backs out?
