Trader’s Corner: TDGX Trading Frenzy
Longtime readers will be aware that TDGX is The Dynasty Guru Experts League. The league is a dynasty of course, and filled with team owners who are writers at all the best fantasy baseball websites on the Internet. We are entering the third season of the league and just recently concluded our First Year Player Draft. Stay tuned in upcoming days for plenty of TDGX draft coverage in these pages as we go in depth on the players we drafted and why we chose them. You can follow the league on Twitter with the hashtag #TDGX.
Today we will look at a flurry of trades that took place in TDGX. We saw a lot of prospects change hands as teams retooled for the future. In a 20 team league you have more rebuilding teams than “go for it now” contending teams. That has the effect of driving up the value and hence the price of premium prospects and young major leaguers. Let’s dive right into the trading action. You get to vote on which side won the trade.

Any other suggestions among last year’s signees or fast risers?

Unrelated, but hoping to get an opinion on some of the guys remaining in our prospect draft:
Any other sleepers among recent signees or guys who shot up the lists last year
franco, gausman and bregman for yelich, and jon lester
sp- cole, yu, smyly, syndergaard, verlander, gausman
20 team dynasty, h2h 5×5 league…
should i do it and get yelich & lester?????
It’s seems like a fair return for both sides, but I would not make that deal if I were in your position. If the other owner would be open to removing Franco & Yelich and building something around Gausman & Bregman for Lester, that would seem to make more sense for you.
I would not make the deal. Not a believer in Lester’s long term value. Franco is better than Yelich I think.I can understand making the deal if you are in it to win it this year and your window of competitiveness will be closing soon. If you are in the middle of the pack or rebuilding I would prefer the younger group of Franco, Gausman and Bregman.
