If one of your league-mates wants to buy high on any of these players, Ben and Craig would advice you to let him go.
Last week we brought you
six players we’re buying in a dynasty format, so naturally, we thought it prudent to bring you another six-pack of players, this time focusing on who we’re selling, using the same long-term perspective.
Ben: , Everything, BOS Brock Holt
Brock Holt is a pretty decent baseball player. He can play both corner infield spots, both corner outfield spots and second base, and he can fake it in center or at short for a few games. He’s fast enough to be an occasional threat on the bases, he has a patient approach at the plate and he has the bat speed necessary to barrel up good velocity. There are lots of nice things you can say about Brock Holt (o/), and I think he’ll be a unique, valuable major leaguer for a long time.

It's not so easy to bamboozle teams looking for summer relief.

A look at the moves sellers might make and the fantasy impact they'd have.
Unless you are in a very shallow mixed league, chances are excellent that the major league non-waiver trade deadline will have an impact on your fantasy league. Even if you don’t play fantasy baseball, the deadline is a fun time if you are a baseball fan, but ever since I started playing fantasy baseball, I feel like I pay extra attention to the rumor mill.
What I have compiled for our readers this week is a helpful, at-a-glance, one article look at the potential trade market this month, particularly from the viewpoint of players who might be on the move. Since this is a fantasy article, I will focus on fantasy impact, but if you are a non-fantasy player and a
Baseball Prospectus reader, I hope that this article proves useful to you as well. The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level. Please click here to subscribe.

The A's go all in, and the Cubs add to their prospect stockpile.
The remainder of this post cannot be viewed at this subscription level. Please click here to subscribe. The Buyers, the Sellers, the players who'll move, and one unacknowledged opportunity to snark about Omar Minaya.
The buyers far outnumber those interested in moving the present for the future. These four teams seem like the most likely to make moves.

Judging by research Baseball Prospectus
published in January, we know what internet commenters are willing to trade for : not much, because that’s what many of them think it would take to get a deal done. Of course, it’s much easier to mock the uninformed, biased evaluations that lead to proposals like “Price for David Price and Ivan Nova ” than it is to put together a package that might make professional trade partners perk up. As BP commenter mblthd quite reasonably Zoilo Almonte observed at the time: Read the full article...
Ben and Sam banter about the Astros, then discuss what a realistic return would be in a package for David Price.
Ben and Sam banter about seeing no-hitters and team philosophies, then discuss potential solutions for each contender's biggest need.
The staff looks at holes that some teams in the running for playoff spots might need to plug. Do teams tend to overpay for bullpen help at the deadline?
Baseball lore preaches that a team “can never have enough pitching,” but we rarely hear the same thing said about hitting, perhaps because of a sister proverb, “Baseball is 75 percent pitching.” Pitcher fragility plays a big part, of course. But sometimes one poor start or relief outing will cause a team to press for more pitchers: a marginal arm blows up, and suddenly the team needs assistance. When a hitter goes 0-for-4 or 1-for-5, on the other hand, the line is common enough that we don’t bat an eye.
