I think these people are probably going off memory or emails they received when a trade was rejected.

i play on sportingnews and you can go back and look at every trade offer you've ever sent, every one you've ever recived ect. It was also funny reading some of the comments they had to say when they declined my trade offer.

When I offered Lackey for Gomes, the guy told me the only way he would trade Gomes is if I gave him a "real" starter, and countered with my Halladay for his Gomes. :*)

I offered Otsuka for Coffey for some reason, can't remember why the heck I would do that, but the guy said Coffey was going to be a top teir closer from here on out. He also went on to say that he had a good amount of closers, but needed some OF help. He said he would think about my Halladay for his Coffey :-b

I offered A-Ram and Scott Olsen for Peavy. A-Ram was hitting in the low to middle .200s with decent home runs, and Olsen had an era of around 6. But Peavy was struggling as well, 4 wins and an ERA close to 5. The guy had Beltre at 3B, who was barley over .200 with maybe one home run. I thought maybe he would accept this and peavy would atleast help my K numbers if nothing else. Well the guy told me not to bother sending any more trade offers his way, and a quick look at the stats of A-Ram, Olsen & Peavy now....

Ramirez: .273 BA, 55 R, 25 HR, 72 RBI, 1 SB
Olsen: 115.1 IP, 9 W, 111 K's, 3.90ERA, 1.28WHIP
Peavy: 131 IP, 5 W, 138 K's, 4.81ERA, 1.28 WHIP


My very first trade offer sent to anyone, Chris Young for WMP. Guy told me he didn't belive the hype around Young, and that WMP was primed for 40HRS 100RBI. Actually, this was my thinking as well, I wasn't exactly sold on Young and had a man crush on WMP. Well as it turned out, Young isnt exaclty an ace by any means, but he is doing a fine job for me. And WMP has all of i think 6 home runs.

Ryan Howard- got off to a terrible start this year I think he hit in the low .200's with no power numbers for most of April

Joe Nathan- Minnesota was wretched and he was getting zero save opps.

Grady Sizemore- also got off to a terrible start in April.

for his Derrek Lee

Im now in 1st place. I wouldnt be today if that trade was accepted.

Offered Morneau and Andy Pettitte for his Chad Cordero right before Morneau got hot and Pettitte started to turn it around.
