Trader’s Corner: Take An All-Star Break
Everybody needs a break once in a while. The whole purpose of this column is to “judge” trades via polls, but can I ask that readers of my column take a break from something this season? Can we agree to take a break from bashing other people’s trades at this year’s fantasy deadline? Can we stop using the word “raped” when talking about a fantasy baseball trade? Can we admit that maybe we don’t have crystal balls and that even the worst looking deals sometimes end up favoring the “loser”? I’m asking because my guess is that most of us play in leagues where the same owners compete year to year and in most cases they are people we are friends with in real life. Don’t burn any bridges just because you think a deal was a dumb move. Talk to people on the internet the same way you’d talk to them if they were sitting across from you at your kitchen table. If you’d like your trade to appear in this column, simply email it along with your league’s details to firstname.lastname@example.org. Have a great All-Star Break and enjoy tonight’s game! Here are this week’s trades…
20 team league, H2H, 6×6 with OPS and Holds added, 40 man rosters, 10 minor league slots and a $300 cap with contracts up to 5 years. I am building for next season as is my trading partner and right now I have Scutaro and Barney manning the Keystone while he has Profar. Here’s the deal:
Dynasty league that has been around for 5 years or so.
I just made a deal that I am scratching my head about…and let me preface it with the fact that I am in straight rebuilding mode – playing for next year.
Both teams are in the top 7. Team 1 is trying to improve outfield. Team 2 is accumulating pitching to backup his crazy good offense. Is this a fair deal? Are the prospects enough?
