I think it's kind of classless. Classless is a little strong but it's early and I can't think of the right word. Not something I would do if for no other reason than you risk alienating a potential trade partner.

i agree about only saying something if they are repeatedly sending garbage trades over and over. nothing wrong with offering something a little one sided to start off and you never know how the other owner values certain players.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

This is definately not classy. Dont get me wrong, I love talking trash, and I think thats one of the best parts about fantasy baseball. However, when it comes to trading you want to be very careful what you say to people. An e-mail like that could easily shut the doors on numerous trading partners. I said something to this effect in the most recent article
