First offers should be a starting point so if I get a ridiculous offer I usually just reject and move on. But If I get an offer, even a bad offer I'll usually make an effort to work a trade.

There is obviously a reason that the owner made the offer, and it is very rarely, if ever insidious - if they are trying to lowball/rip someone off, they are likely to do it to an unsuspecting newbie anyway. Usually an initial offer is nothing more than thinking out loud.
Its sometimes hard to know the other owner's motivations or what guys they overvalue and will fiercely defend and vice versus. Unless you are best friends with the guy, the only way to know is to put an offer on the table. The way I see it, if your first offer gets accepted, then you gave away too much. Better to offer a borderline deal or one slightly in your favor so you can negotiate some sort of middle ground. If that insults someone's intelligence, then so be it. These aren't hardly ever big-money leagues, so you could probably include a clause in the trade response that instructs them to lighten up
