My league mates have been ON FIRE sending me garbage offers:

1) Hector Santiago for Starling Marte

2) Matt Wieters, Andrew Cashner, and MIKE WRIGHT for Giancarlo Stanton

Not exactly terrible at face value... but in a dynasty league it's iffy at best.

I GIVE: Steven Matz

I GET: Mark Trumbo

I said no for 2 reasons:

1) I don't like Trumbo in Seattle, especially in our league where we value OPS.

2) I'd have to drop someone.

I don't mind bad trade offers, unless you simultaneously complain about my offers. Guys looking for an OF. Offered me Ozuna/Miller for Puig (in a league where puig he can be kept for a 12th round pick).

Since he needs 2B help too I countered with Paredes/Ventura for Miller/Betances...rejected with a snarky attitude.

This is all too common

This actually went through in my league:

Billy Burns and Clippard for Kinsler and Carrasco.

Thinking of trying to get it vetoed.

I just traded my Abreu for Stanton and 2 days later I received a trade offer for my Stanton and a Rd 24 pick for Kemp, Duda, Storen and a rd 3 pick. Then the same guy offered ARod, Storen, Rodney, Walker and a 3rd rd pick for Stanton and a 24th rd pick.

Offered a guy Max Scherzer and DJ LaMeheiu for Paul Goldschmidt (it was an opening offer, was willing to negotiate). He counters with wanting my Scherzer/LaMeheiu, but giving me David Ortiz and Matt Garza. Ummm, yeah, no thanks..

Probably because your first offer was stupid.

Hence why I said it was an opening offer. I included a message with the trade that I was willing to trade Scherzer and someone else. The offer was just to get his attention.

Besides, I don't see how offering the #4 and #60 ranked players for the #1 ranked player is a "stupid" offer.

I do that alot. Someone sends me a lowball offer, I send one back. The opening offer kind of sets the tone if the other manager even wants to trade. At least make a serious offer, instead of " willing to negotiate".

So let's say Scherzer goes out next game, throws another complete game shutout with 10+ K's and less than 5 hits allowed. That would probably move him up to #1 or #2. The guy I made the offer too is in the cellar in most pitching categories, and is near the top in most batting categories. He's in 10th place overall in a 12 team league. The offer made would have benefited both teams. His offer back to me for 2 guys that shouldn't even be rostered was ridiculous.
