I couldn't agree with this statement more. If someone wants my player, they had better bait the hook...or else I'll tell them to take a hike. By asking me to make him an offer for a player he wants...he's essentially asking me to show my cards in a hand of Hold'm before the flop.
Make a decent offer...maybe not your best...but close to it. You can always adjust by adding players in, rather than uping your offer 1 way.
