i offered this guy in my league furcal for benitez... he basically blasted me in the league message board and said that trade offer was "insulting"

any thoughts?

Well, Furcal has been hurt and Benitez has been very solid so far. Nothing to get mad about, but I don't know if I would do it unless I needed a SS.

:-?
I don't know why he'd be upset either when he has those options at SS. Maybe he looked at Furcal's recent numbers (3-27 or something) and thought you were trying to pull one over on him. I would ask him what he thinks is fair value for Furcal and go from there.

well, i just looked and saw that he was the one that dropped furcal in the first place, i grabbed him off the wire about a month ago. so maybe that's his problem.. i'm not sure what his deal is to tell you the truth...he does have a team full of super hot guys right now like casey, c wilson, finley, weaver, feliz, bellhorn, benitez, graves etc... nobody i'd really want in the long run... i've been playing for about 7 years now and this is the absolute worst anyone has ever reacted to any trade i've offered up... but oh well, if he want's to sit with that team and not move any of those players, we'll see how he ends up the season i guess... i mean that's the ultimate sell high squad if i've ever seen it...

thanks for the input Kpucks

The deal ain't fair as I MUCH rather have Benitez, however, not worth a blasting.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!
