Probably one of those guys who thinks a 4 for 3 is fair even if the 4 players you're offering up don't come close to certain players on the other side of the deal.

This is a bit too far apart to even work from, but how about countering with Kemp for ALL 4 of those players so he gets the point? I think that would be a bit closer in value.

Depending on number of teams in league and scoring cats, I probably would too.

My point was that those 4 for Kemp would in reality be closer to fair than what was offered, and the guy would probably get upset and decline and never bother the original poster again.

If you want him to get the point....offer Wandy for all four.

I have one of these guys in my league and offered up all of my bench players for his top two players to try to get the point across... he almost accepted it lol.

obviously that is ridiculous. i hate dealing with fools like this who dont realize you have to give high value to get high value, not just throw a bunch of ok guys to get a prize player (2 at that in this case!)
