Just now I got a TERRIBLE offer. I'm not sure if this guy thinks I'm stupid or not. :-o

I need SP badly, so I offered Hoffman and Winn for Buehrle and Wilkerson. Not so bad..

He said "no way you can have my sleeper pick in Wilkerson"

I ask him what sounds good to him, then.

"Realistically, Jose Reyes. I do want to trade Leiber, though, so if you can work around that..."

He offers me Leiber for Jose Reyes straight up.

Team A has offered you a trade:

Garret Anderson, Shea Hillenbrand, Tadahito Iguchi and Wily Mo Pena for

Joe Nathan and Johan Santana.

My worst so far.
Be excellent to each other.

I think some people just join Yahoo leagues to screw with people or piss them off.

A guy I've played 5 years in a keeper league with just offered me Mussina and C. Jones for Beckett and Berkman. I think that's pretty bad, esp in a keeper league.
