The Quinton: Fantasy Trade Deadline Takeaways

2

Jeff Quinton

Lessons Jeff learned over the past week.

Having just wrapped up my AL- and NL-only keeper-league trade deadlines last weekend, I have some takeaways to help us navigate future trade deadlines. The first is regarding the importance of growing and knowing trade routes when we are faced with limited time. The next is using strategic trends to predict the behavior of our leaguemates. The last is actually regarding FAAB bidding in keeper leagues following the MLB trade deadlines (when players switch leagues and thus become available).

Limited Time, Pop-up Markets, and Trade Routes

Rubbing Mud: The Non-Transaction Analysis

Matthew Trueblood

Among the slew of moves made leading up to the trade deadline, there were some notable non-moves that also deserve analysis

The trade deadline has come and gone; hopefully you've read all the good writing we did about all the exciting trades that happened last week. Here's something about which you probably haven't read yet, though: comprehensive analyses of all the biggest moves that didn't go down.

San Diego Padres
Did not acquire anything from anyone in exchange for RHP Ian Kennedy, OF-R Justin Upton, OF-L Will Venable, or RHP Joaquin Benoit.

The Yankees acquire white whale Dustin Ackley, the Pirates bolster their bullpen, and the Giants solidify their rotation with Mike Leake.

The Dodgers traded for seven players in one three-way trade, including Mat Latos and Alex Wood. Hector Olivera, among others, heads the other way.

Now the Blue Jays'd come so far and they'd waited so long just to end up caught outside the playoffs where everything goes wrong

The Quinton: Fantasy Trade Deadline Guide

0

Jeff Quinton

Strategy, process, and decision-making help for your deadline dealing.

The real baseball trade deadline approaches. The trade deadline in many fantasy baseball leagues also approaches. It is a wonderful time of the year. To celebrate, we will take a look at some of the strategic and behavioral decision-making factors that we should be considering this time of year. Some of these factors will be old friends, while others will be new acquaintances. We will be going more for breadth than depth here.

League Norms and the Default Effect

We are looking at the intersection of two behaviors here, so buckle up. A norm in many a league is for teams to wait to trade until the trade deadline. A less extreme norm is for teams in the middle of the pack to wait until the traded deadline to decide whether to be buyers or sellers. This is often a powerful norm because it provides owners with (i) an easy route for risk aversion and (ii) a nice default option. These decisions are hard, and the default effect tells us that when we are faced with complex or weighty decisions, we rely more on defaults. In this case, many teams will avoid making moves until the trade deadline.
