Dynasty Dynamics: Rebuilding in TDGX

Ben Carsley

Ben recounts the trades he made in an effort to restore his dynasty-league squad into a contender down the road.

Flags Fly Forever. This is a well-established sleep aid concept at Baseball Prospectus, and it’s what caused me to get very aggressive when The Dynasty Guru Experts League was founded two years ago. This 20-team, 5x5, 35-keeper (including 10 minor league slots) expert dynasty league was created by Bret Sayre to pit knowledgeable, dedicated dynasty league fanatics against each other, as well as provide us with plenty of column material for years to come.

Ben puts his own spin on the best long-term fantasy assets in baseball.

Last year was the first year I published my own Dynasty Top 101 list on Baseball Prospectus. As I explained in that piece, I used to sort of complete with Bret Sayre when it comes to dynasty stuff. Then I heard the expression “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em,” teamed up with Bret at TheDynastyGuru.com and, three years later, I get to annoy you people at least twice a month at Baseball Prospectus.

Ben Carsley

A glimpse of the fantasy future on the bump.

There’s an argument to be made that you should only invest in like four or five players on this list, but let’s be real; you can’t help yourself. Seriously, most of these guys will fail and make you sad. But so long as pitching categories exist, starter prospects are a necessary evil.

No, really: Betts and Bogaerts are fantastic franchise cornerstones.

Here begins our season previews, which we're unofficially calling the No, Really previews. Over the next 30 weekdays, we aim to reinforce the truest things about each team.

Mookie Betts and Xander Bogaerts represent both the future and the present of the Red Sox, and we’re about to watch them become the faces of the Red Sox in real-time.
