Worst Trade Offer you've received? Or laughed at?

2 months ago I was offered Beltre, Wigginton, Cameron, Millwood and D Davis. He wanted C Crawford, E Chavez, L Berkman, and J Verlander. 8-o

That has to be the worst one!!!

what side is the rip-off? :-?

that's not a bad trade

If you are getting kazmir and howard side, i would do it in a heartbeat. Kazmimr is a little downgrade in pitching but howard is definitely an upgrade in 1b or util, unless u got pujols and hafner.

Im pretty sure most people would take the Kazmir and Howard side, but its not a horrible trade. Your still getting Liriano, who righthas been the best pitcher in baseball since he got a rotation spot.

I'd get Liriano and Koshansky.

see...split opinion :-D

He's not saying he would take that trade, he's the guy that was offered that trade.

And you'd have to be retarded not to take the Ryan Howard and Kazmir side. Liriano is great, but does he hit 50 HR per year in addition to being a dominant pitcher? Kazmir is not such a huge downgrade from Liriano either.

That guy is super good, but come on... the difference between Liriano and Kazmir is MORE than Ryan Howard?

Fairly early:

B. Jordan
J. Valverde
A. Burgos


V. Wells

I got a whole bunch of variations around this - scrubs for either Berkman or Wells.

I don't remember any 1 specific but people have been trying to steal Liriano away from me all year in my dynasty league. Like earlier in the year I offered RJ for him. This is pre allstar break so it wasn't even while he doing half way decent. Plus he's on a 1 yr contract and I got Liriano on a 3 year (which is our max contract length).
All of the true things I am about to tell you are shameless lies
