Whats the worst trade you have ever been offered in a serious league?
2 weeks ago I was offered Griffey, F.Garcia, and Mike Macdougal(on the DL might I add) for my Beltran and Schilling. A few 9th rounders and up for my first two picks :-/

The only trade I've been offered this year was Maggs for Bret Boone, Mussina, and B Giles.

Maggs is a good player but not that good.

The worst trades usually involve someone making an offer for a good player, and rather than offer something of equivalent value, offering a ton of mediocre players.

Last year I was offered Reggie Sanders, Lidle, Aramis Ramirez, Borowski and Steve Finley for Pujols.

Offered...

I offered someone (who is notoriously bad at evaluating trades)

Greg Maddux and Eric Hinske for Vazquez

or Cabrera for Vazquez

or Texeira for Vazquez

He lost his starting third baseman (Dimitri Young) to start off the year.

Is this as bad an offer as he is making it seem?

I showed some interest in Crawford and promptly received an offer of Crawford for my Helton. Guess he's not ready to part with Crawford just yet.
Blessed are the cheesemakers.

I was offered Dontrelle Willis and Hideki Matsui for Pujols.. I think it was a joke, though, although I never made a similarly unreasonable offer to him.
