However, you didn't make this deal at all with any one GM specifically - and you said you would be "interested" - not that you were offering x player for him.
Can't really say thumbs down - if anything, a GM who saw your post should contact you first before making the waiver claim on Garza to work out a tentative deal with you once the claim is successful - and then if you bail out on him after he does it - then If they go ahead without talking to you first and then find that your "interest" is only mild, they've assumed the risk I think.

12 team league, I have 11th waiver spot. Pretty competive league. I post a message to all owners telling them that if they were lucky enough to claim Matt Garza that I would be interested in trading for him.
By doing this I essentially blocked some of the other oweners chasing me (I am in 1st place) from getting Garza. The owners towards the bottom of the standings have higher waiver priority.
