The Quinton: The Big Trade, Untouchables, and Storytelling

1

Jeff Quinton

A look at the obstacles to fantasy blockbusters and how we might overcome them.

Onward—always onward—the calendar tacitly mandates. Auctions and drafts are now the past. Closing in on us is the in-season trade market.

Most of the leagues in which I participate do not see heavy trade activity at this point of the season. The adjective “heavy” in this instance (when affected by the preceding “not”) describes both the volume of trades (minimal) and the magnitude of trades (minor). But, once every so often, maybe once a season, maybe even less frequently, a big trade gets made. If we expand our requirements to include the entire season, not just the beginnings of the trade season, then we will still usually only find a few big trades.

The Fantasy Verdict: Declaring Winners and Losers of Trades

J.P. Breen

J.P. evaluates the merits of three barters submitted by readers on Twitter.

Between the Bat Signal and Twitter, the Fantasy Team gets hundreds of hypothetical trade proposals each year. Should I trade Player A and Player B for Player C? Am I giving up too much? Would you do that trade? We do our best to offer thoughtful advice in an attempt to aid your quest for a fantasy championship.

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.

The Quinton: Negotiating the Trade Process

0

Jeff Quinton

Offseason trading can put you in murkier waters than in-season talks, so Jeff offers advice to help clearythe path to a deal.

In-season trading tends to be pretty straightforward: The buyers buy from the sellers, the sellers sell to the buyers. Consequently, when a player is made available in-season, there are usually a few suitors that logically want to acquire that player. During the offseason, though, the trade markets tend to be more wide open. When a player is made available during the offseason, there are more teams than not that might make sense as viable trade partners.

With the wild, wild west that seemingly is the fantasy baseball offseason (combined with our illusions of the wild west), I have found that this is the time that we are most likely to see a deal we think is done get pulled out from underneath our feet. Put differently, this is the time of year when we are most likely to think we are close on a deal when we are not close at all.

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.
