Trader’s Corner: Cash in on the Frustration
This is the time of year when losing owners get frustrated and start to shed the underperforming players they blame for their disappointing season. There are some maddening players to own this year. Stars like Stephen Strasburg, Matt Kemp and Robinson Cano have let their owners down big time. Early draft picks like Anthony Rendon and Hunter Pence started the season injured, came back and then got hurt again.
Many owners want to ditch the players that screwed them over this season. Some of those players are still studs who can help you win. Swoop in and grab those studs before someone else does. If a frustrated owner is blowing up his team now is your chance to take advantage.
This week we are seeing Strasburg, Rendon, D’Arnaud, Stanton, Tulowitzki, Hanley, Teheran, Cano and even Kershaw get sold down the river for rebuilding chips. Go get them!
