Building a Contender in TGDX

by J.P. Breen


Regular Baseball Prospectus readers are familiar with The Dynasty Guru Experts League (TDGX). It’s a 20-team, 40-man-roster dynasty league that’s run by our benevolent leader, Bret Sayre, and it includes experts from across the industry—from BP to CBSSports to FanGraphs to MLB.com and beyond. We chronicle the weekly transactions and occasionally have an in-depth article from a TDGX owner that digs into the nitty gritty of his roster and his past/future strategy.

TDGX was my first dynasty league when it began in 2014. My inexperience led to a catastrophe of a draft, and I was the first team to officially embark on a roster rebuild. I finished in 18th in 2014 and 16th in 2015—firmly in the bottom fourth of the league. However, when looking at weekly results in the second half of last year, I began creeping up into the 6-10 range, which gave me hope that I was nearing contention.

Verdict: I’m currently in fifth place this year and have been quite active in the trade market.
