Oh yeah, some idiot in my league offered me Sabathia, Valdez and Alou for Mulder, Mussina and Wood. When I rejected it, the tool offered about four different versions of the same trade.

i give up carlos lee, juan pierre, and jose mesa for javier vazquez.

i want vazquez bad, but i don't think you give up a .320 guy with 40 steals on a team where even i-rod has something like 4 SB.

honorable mentions:

vlad for vazquez. manny and wolf for magglio.

i suppose i've been lowballing people more than i've received, here are some gems i've offered up:

runlevys hernandez for.... erubiel durazo, juan encarnacion, preston wilson, etc

A guy just accepted my trade of Jay Payton and Shawn Chacon..who I picked up off of waivers specifically for this...for Bobby Abreu. At first I had Vladdy but I thought it would be a bit much but I should've went through with it. This is the guy in our league who goes for the hot starters..he has Crawford, Jordan, Patterson, Suppan, Lidge....glad I found this guy. But now I have Thome, Burrell and Abreu...lol...the possibilities are crazy but I may need to trade one
Only victory will be accepted this year!

I was offered Reggie Sanders for Tejada. I've just let the trade sit there ever since, just to make him think that I'm thinking about it. Maybe get his hopes up.

I dont know what it is about fellas in my league but they all seem to think that their players are gold. Just checked this morning on my team. I have a trade that someone offered at 1:29AM. Not one person in my league thinks Klesko is worth a starting spot. So they all offer me these trades that are out there to begin with then throw Klesko in there because they dont want to lose an OF and figure he's as good a FA pickup.

I get B.Giles(HURT!!!)
I give B.Zito,R.Klesko

I ask anyone to beat that most recent trash offer.

Someone offered me Ben Sheets for Greg Maddux. Maddux will eventually turn it around, so I respectfully declined.
