Today when I logged on, I couldn't believe I was offered Dempster and Miles for Jed Lowrie.

I had to turn it down and remake a fairer offer to make it M Gonzalez, Lowrie, and Sonnanstine for Dempster, Miles, and Galarraga. What if he declines? LOL

Even if I accepted, it probably wouldn't have been approved by the league anyway.

Has anyone ever been offered a more generous deal late in the season?

Good move re-offering it to make it more fair. Is this guy a huge Sawx fan?

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

He's a Met fan. He's impatient. Earlier he traded Beckett and Howard for Berkman, and then Verlander for C Gomez.

You should pick up Al Reyes to sweeten the trade. Kidding.

My counter-offer was actually Sonnanstine, Gonz, and Lowrie for Miles and Dempster (no Galarraga, I forgot that I had changed the final offer). But he declined it.

And he re-offered Miles, Dempster, and Galarraga for Hoffman and Lowrie. He must have not wanted Gonzalez LOL. (Can't say I blame him) I accepted this one as I didn't wanna drag this out too long. The trade deadline is in a few days.

The 2nd place team has a 40 save lead on everyone else, which allowed him to trade away all his closers to bolster his team for other categories. His team is now set up to gain enough ground to pass my team with ease if it plays decent. Damn KROD.

I am gonna need big Septembers from Beltran and D Lee (who just hit into another DP with RISP as I type)... I might as well count on William Hung to win Mr. Universe. My team is in trouble.
