Trader’s Corner: Readers Been Busy
Lots of trades to get to this week, so we’ll get right to brass tax. Thanks to everyone who submitted, and keep sending us your recent trades and trade proposals to: firstname.lastname@example.org or on Twitter @643ball. Last week we tallied over 200 reader votes for three trades. Hopefully it was helpful for those who submitted and fun for those who read/voted. Some trades/leagues are more complicated than others so I’ll post the relevant info at the top of the poll for each. Here are this week’s trades…
Keeper points league, 9 keepers, Profar on the DL
My other pitchers are Zack Wheeler, Gio Gonzalez, Sonny Gray, Shelby Miller, Tyson Ross, Tyler Chatwood, Joe Kelly, Brett Anderson, Archie Bradley, Charlie Morton, Corey Kluber, Jake Peavy
Dynasty league, 20 teams, extremely deep rosters, 4 round draft every year, 28 man major league roster, 12 man minor league roster, only 1 SP per day, H2H points system…
10 team, 28 man roster dynasty league that also has 5 NA (minor league) slots
Hitting– singles, doubles, triples, HR, SB, RBIs, Runs, AVG, OBP
Pitching– Wins, Losses, CG, Shutouts, Ks, ERA, WHIP, Holds, Saves
Geared to win now, but neither of our teams are that old.
Trade #4 (apparently Bret, the Guru himself, is in this league)
This is a 16-team points league, 29-man active roster with 25-man minor league rosters…
Two rebuilding trades. I inherited an aging roster including names like Robinson Cano, Ryan Howard, Adam Dunn, Joe Nathan, Michael Morse, Martin Prado, et al. Minus a DL’d Matt Harvey and DL’d Cory Luebke my pitching staff ace was a choice between Jose Quintana and Bronson Arroyo. I had a decent but not great group of prospects on my Minor League roster. The one bright spot there is Byron Buxton.
same league…same owner…
Simple 1-for-1…20 team H2H league, 9 keepers
16 team, 25 mlb/15 milb roster…2-3 years away from contending
