Trader’s Corner: The Beat Goes on

Other than winning piles of cash, trading is the most exciting part of playing fantasy baseball. When you make that epic trade in your league it is always fun to see how other people think you did. Here is your chance to both share your triumphs and register your vote on other peoples’ deals.

The big movers this week were Addison Russell, Kris Bryant and Javier Baez. Why are the Cubs being dealt so often? Other players involved in multiple deals are Yasiel Puig, Josh Donaldson and Carlos Carrasco. Lucas Giolito has been dealt quite a bit as well. I guess owners are worried about the top pitching prospect’s poor start to the season.

Recent weeks saw a lot of trades involving Carlos Correa, Manny Machado and Bryce Harper but that action has cooled off. I guess anyone who was willing to let go of those superstars has already been deprived of their services.

You can join in the action two ways: 1) Vote on these trades to make your opinion count. 2) Submit your own trades for us to vote on in the next Trader’s Corner. Use the form below to submit your trade.

Chris Marcum poses an interesting question for us to ponder. You have three choices on this one. “I’ve got a guy interested in Aledmys Diaz. I have Trea Turner stashed. Pick 1 of these 3 options in a keeper points league.”

Jason is currently in 2nd place in his 10 team, 6×6 dynasty league. They roster 35 MLB and 7 MiLB players and use a $350 salary cap:

Classic sell the farm to win now trade. Giving up some cheap, non-elite prospects for expensive veterans who are off to poor starts.

Ron made two trades in his 10 team keeper league:

Turning Giolito/Baez into Polanco/Rodon is a very nice swap indeed in my book.

Paul L is back again… “Brief league background: 15 team mixed dynasty league: $250 draft budget, A/B/C/D contract terms with 3/4/7 dollar keeper price increase (after D contract player is added back to the pool). Is there a scenario where Piscotty is a 90+ RBI/Runs guy, story hits 35 dingers, and Cobb returns to pre-surgery form that makes this trade not worth the dynastic cornerstone that is Carlos Correa & his minuscule contract?”:

Nick says, “Took over a terribly mismanaged bottom-feeder in an extremely active, extremely competitive 16-team 6×6 (OBP/SLG/R/HR/RBI, K/QS/ERA/WHIP/K:BB/SV+HLD). Have made a lot of trades but here are my 2 biggest:
