Dynasty Dynamics: What the Hell Is Happening: AL Edition

3

Ben Carsley

These four junior-circuit players have risen from anonymity to prominence, but should we expect them to stay fantasy-relevant going forward?

The other day I watched a baseballing game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Boston Red Sox. Brad Miller and Sandy Leon featured prominently in this affair, and it left me feeling confused. One thing led to another, and I decided to write this column in part to help shed some light on other players in the AL who have also astounded me with their performances this year. If they confuse you too, I hope this helps.

The GM Trade Game!

Ben Carsley and BP Staff

Our ATL GM plays hardball with his best trade piece.

Welcome to our second BP Trade Game of 2016, in which a BP staffer is granted one major-league baseballer and fields offers from plausibly interested GMs. Our cast today:

Red Sox general manager Dave Dombrowski was brought in to make moves like this one, sending an elite pitching prospect to the Padres for rotation help.

Read the full article...

Despite a 9.5 game deficit in the Central, the Pirates glass is now half full.

The Situation: The Pirates have stumbled through the season so far, much due to the struggles and injuries of the rotation. Fellow top prospect Jameson Taillon joined the club earlier this year, and it is now Glasnow’s turn to try and stick in Pittsburgh.
