I don't take them seriously, I just reject it. If it's really really really bad, I usually offer my worst player for his best player, just to give him an idea of what I thought
. Don't take things so seriously, your life will be much happier.
I had a guy offer me Alomar for Soriano before Alomar broke his hand. I countered him with Kearns for Bonds. Told him if he'd do that then I'd accept his deal. Neither deal was done needless to say. But so far this year I havent had a serious offer from anyone. And every offer I've made has been rejected. And I'm tied for last place. And since i cant get any trades going it looks like I'm not gonna be going anywhere.
What does bug me is that when I offer people trades for someone and they reject it, then a couple of days later they just cut him and pick up some scrub when I usually offer them something better than they picked up. Case in point.. I offered a guy who was shopping Burrell. He said he wanted a solid pitcher. I offered him his choice of L.Hernandez,Milton,Eaton,J.Williams, or Rhodes. He rejected all of them and wound up getting rid of him for FA pickup.. Steve Trachsel. And im last on WW. So I still coudlnt get him!
