The AI is incapable of making rational trades.

For example, I start a modern game and select the Dodgers. I offer Clayton Kershaw (95) to the Angels for Carlos Perez (70). I get hit with the "I hate my job. Shoot me now." I try a cheaper Corey Seager instead and I get the same response.

What has happened? How am I expected to play when the AI can't craft a rational deal? I'm just confused and I can't believe no one else has mentioned this.
