in my league, in most all cases, offers are created with the needs of the other managers in mind, and addressed as such. ie 'you have excess value at 1B and need SP, so here's a SP and a backup position player for your 1B'. Ask him to address your needs in writing along with future offers -- tell him to tell you why you should take the offer. you'll likely see less attempts to rip you off if he has to actually study your team and present a valuable offer that helps you both.

If the other team continues to offer bad trade after bad trade though, I like to post the trades on the message boards so that other teams are aware that the owner is just trying to rip people off.
Just today I was offered Zambrano + Cantu for my Pujols in a keeper league. The owner just wanted to know if Pujols was available for trade. It was actually the second trade offer I had received for Pujols today. The other offer being that I get Sizemore + Teixeria for my Pujols. I sent this offer information back to the first owner and asked if he could beat the offer.
