    Any Buyers?

    Tried to make some moves to patch over the awful pitching rotation last few seasons, but nothing seemed to work out too well. This team needs a major overhaul. Everyone is available, hit me up if you're interested.

    Simple Rules:

    1. Stop recruiting new owners for your half dead crappy leagues. Your efforts would be better used looking for a stable league with owners who actually care about their teams. Winning the world series in a half unowned league is not worthy of your time.

    2. If you are trading an elite item like a no1 overall pick or a superstud player, then dont take the first offer you get. Advertise your availability to the league to maximize your return. Your trade partner is not going to protect you from underselling yourself.

    3. Quoted from a thread about Monopoly gameplay: "This strategy will end up killing you in the long run. You WANT to make deals. You WANT to be easy to do business with. If players get the impression that you're always going to ask for unreasonable demands, they'll trade with other players, leaving you out of those trades, meaning you get nothing of value while they benefit. Remember, your goal in a trade should not be to screw your trading partner, but to screw anyone who isn't your trading partner. Then people will catch on and realize that if they're not going to give you fair rates, they're going to be left out in the cold, which means that you shouldn't be dealing with people who play that way either."

    I declined and countered. I've been waiting on you. LOL

    Thought maybe you forgot or was busy over the weekend. It was pretty quick so if you didn't get the email notification, you probably thought it was still sitting out there waiting for me.

    Im countering as well, instead of the 19yo SS, I can send you the 22yo SS i drafted 4 spots later. He has more RA, less hitting ability.
