Do all owners think their team is golden?

why would he want to take a small upgrade (and yes, it isn't that big of an upgrade) for a top tier reliever?

1. They overvalue there own players. I never understand why this happens but it does.
2. They only are willing to do a deal that they are obviously winning. Trading is a big part of fantasy baseball. Owners should trade when they have a hole that needs to be filled. But most owners are morons and don't realize that.

I honestly think owners that don't trade ruin the league and make it alot less fun.

If I were you I wouldn't do either of those trades. If your looking to move Ichiro you should be able to get a stud power hitter in return. Try for someone like Miggy Cabera, Edmonds, Texiera, Rolen (when he comes back healthy). If you trade Ichiro for any of those guys you should be getting back another good player in the deal because Ichiro is more valuable then all of them.

Who doesn't think that their players are worth a lot more compared to what the rest of the league thinks?

Also, it's human nature to try to get more for less.

Well put. I have the players I do for a reason - because I like them to do well this year. If I have a good draft, and make a few key WW pickups, I really have no need for a trade usually.

I'll reply to someone if they wrote a message or if it's a fair trade and I'll give my reasons why I won't accept it.
I don't reply to crappy offers with no message.
My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.
