If it's really awful I have some fun and just leave it out there and make someone think im pondering it (most recent was brandon morrow for chipper jones along with a great story about Morrow's promise and chipper's risk). If its just bad but not insulting I will just counter with what it would cost etc. I know plnety of people in those leagues who think you desecrated a loved ones grave even if its slightly below par though you hear about it firsthand if it was you offering the deal, or seconhand when they relate "Guess what owner x sent me" or always the "best" - on e-mails or the message board etc. I always get a great laugh over someone sending out a league e-mail to go on a tirade about the insulting offer he got on player Y.
