Last week I asked readers to send in their pending and completed trades for this weekly series. I was overwhelmed with the response I got as my inbox was full within 24 hours. So while I originally thought I’d be posting the second part of the “trade personality study“, I’m going to save that for a rainy day and get right into it this week with your trades. For each trade, I’ll provide the league format, some relevant roster info, and my own two cents. I’d encourage you to vote as the more votes we receive, the better informed the person asking for help will feel. This is a good time to tell you these are actual trades in real leagues, and my goal is for all of us to discuss and learn from them, so feel free to comment to explain your vote or provide your take. Also, keep sending your pending and completed trades to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get them in one of the upcoming posts.
Bret went over several of the TDGX transactions on Tuesday, so this will be repetitive for some of the regular readers, but here are the most recent trades made in the Dynasty Guru Experts’ League (20 teams, 40-man rosters):
Erasmo Ramirez, SP for Rob Kaminsky, SP
Andrew Cashner, SP for 2015 1st Round and 2015 3rd Round Draft Pick
Travis Wood, SP for 2015 2nd Round and 2015 5th Round Draft Pick
Nick Castellanos, 3B/OF, Julio Urias, SP and Addison Reed, RP for Oscar Taveras, OF and Matt Barnes, SP
Reader Trade #1
Dynasty league, 4 round draft every year, 28 man major league roster, 10 man minor league roster, only 1 SP per day, H2H points system…
I like the Buchholz side personally. He’s had a rocky start to the season and his health is a bit of a concern, but for me he’s going to provide better ratios and wins numbers despite not having the home park advantage of Ramirez.
