On the debut episode of DFA, Bryan and R.J. discuss the New York Mets and how bad they are at using the new 10-day disabled list, Jerry Dipoto giving up on Leonys Martin, and the irreplacable starting pitchers heading to the DL!

It's the debut episode of BP's newest podcast: DFA! Host Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus), co-host R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), and producer Shawn Brody (Beyond the Box Score, BP Mets) are talking about all the transactions and roster moves that make MLB go. From trades and signings to callups and disabled list stints, DFA is here to provide analysis and commentary on all things baseball.

On the debut episode of the show, Bryan and R.J. discuss the New York Mets and how bad they are at using the new 10-day disabled list (very bad!). After that, they try to make sense of Jerry Dipoto's latest roster churn: Leonys Martin gets DFAed as the Mariners give up on him before May. And, to close it out, the guys take aim at Shawn's batting practice topics including Madison Bumgarner, Garrett Richards, Starling Marte, and ... perhaps most importantly ... the epic Ty Kelly trade.

TDGX Transactions: Week 3

0

J.J. Jansons

King Felix and the Toddfather—unloaded! Jason Vargas—a $21 "zombie"? Taylor Motter—$15 for that gorgeous hair.

For those not already acquainted with The Dynasty Guru Experts League, it is a 20-team (40-man roster) 5x5 rotisserie dynasty league founded by BP managing editor Bret Sayre in 2014. It is intended to satisfy the deep-league needs of all, right down to just the right amount of Alexi Amarista. We roster 23 starters: C/1B/2B/3B/SS/MI/CI, along with two additional utility hitters, five outfielders and nine pitchers. We also roster seven bench slots and have 10 spots designated for minor leaguers, although a quick scan of the league finds that most teams utilize a majority of their bench spots for additional prospects. That means that there are an additional 100-120 prospects that are rostered above the 200 spots reserved for them.

These write-ups are intended to pair nicely with Mike Gianella’s Expert FAAB Review’s, as we will take a look at the TDGX free-agent acquisitions each week, as well as include thoughts on every major trade that occurs during the season. The yearly budget for free agent transactions is $100, with $0 bids allowed for major leaguers and prospects.

TDGX Transactions: Amateur Draft

4

J.J. Jansons

Twenty fantasy baseball experts from around the internet compete in a deep rotisserie-style dynasty league. Get tips from the best by taking a look at this periodic analysis of their transactions.

Welcome to the first edition of this year’s TDGX Transactions. I’ll be taking the torch from the world’s foremost expert on leaping relievers, George Bissell, who did an admirable job of recapping transactions. He also had the first pick in this year’s draft, which you’ll find plenty of thoughts on below.

For those not already acquainted with The Dynasty Guru Experts League, it is a 20-team (40-man roster), 5x5 rotisserie dynasty league founded by Baseball Prospectus managing editor Bret Sayre back in 2014. It is intended to satisfy the deep-league needs of all, right down to just the right amount of Alexi Amarista. We roster 23 starters: C/1B/2B/3B/SS/MI/CI, along with two additional utility hitters, five outfielders and nine pitchers. We also roster seven bench slots and have 10 spots designated for minor leaguers, although a quick scan of the league finds that most teams utilize a majority of their bench spots for additional prospects.

The Best of Sam Miller

Sam Miller

Brian Wilson signs to be the Dodgers' second-best reliever.

With our dear Editor-in-Chief leaving Baseball Prospectus for his next chapter, we wanted to highlight some of our favorite chapters of his career here. There's an incredible number of timeless Sam Miller articles to choose from, but we whittled it down enough to not break the internet. This article originally ran on December 6, 2013.

Painting the Black: Transaction Trends

4

R.J. Anderson

Our transactions master looks at some trends to see what the league as a whole is doing with their 40- and 25-man rosters

The start of September is the beginning of the regular-season end of the Transaction Analysis column. Most trades are completed before August's conclusion to comply with the playoff-eligibility rules, while the roster-expansion period minimizes the roles options and waivers play in achieving the optimal 25-man set. Factor in that the remaining free agents are non-entities, and the next month-plus will be light on meaningful activity. This is, then, the perfect time to reflect on the year that was in transactions (or, at least, April 1st through September 8th) by highlighting and examining some trends.

The Dodgers enjoyed using Oklahoma City …
Much has been made of the inventiveness and resourcefulness of Farhan Zaidi and Andrew Friedman's frankenadministration in Los Angeles. Those attributes were most apparent in how and why they used their new Triple-A affiliate. The Dodgers led the majors by issuing 53 optional assignments (49 of which directed players toward Oklahoma City), seven more than the next-closest team (the Red Sox), 10 more than the next-closest contender (a tie between the Angels and Yankees), and nearly 24 more than the league median (29.5).
