Trade Topic

Postby Holein1 » Tue May 29, 2012 9:50 pm

Is there any threads out there that discusses trades that happened in your league. I would love to hear some trades that have went down in other leagues (might help me figure out the value of some of my players)

So far I have seen

Reyes, Aceves, Billingsly
Cain, Hardy, J Williams

Bautista, Desmond
Granderson, Rodney

Pujols, Presley
Beltran, Cargo

You'll occasionally see somebody mention something in a daily Cheering/Venting topic. A great resource we have here is the Draft, Trade, Keeper, Waiver Forum where people are posing questions to the community about various trades, and people weigh in with their thoughts. You can generally get an idea as a threat progresses if the trade happened or not, etc.

If the powers that be let this thread hang around... here are the deals in my main league this year... we have some funky keeper rules, so some may seem questionable... In chronological order from pre-season to this week...

Andrew McCutchen
Desmond Jennings & Mike Minor

Billy Butler & Kelly Johnson
Neil Walker & Nick Swisher

Brandon Morrow & Ryan Dempster
Carlos Beltran & Tim Hudson

B.J. Upton, Ricky Romero & Colby Lewis
Johan Santana & Mat Latos

Due to our keeper scheme and manager makeup there is a lot of player turnover in our keeper league. In fact this is probably one of our slowest trade years in the past 10 or so. I included the months in which these deals happened as many of the players were hurt after these trades, it could help better asses values.

Soria* for Ethier and Hellickson
Stubbs for McCann*
Josh Johnson and Aramis* for V-Mart and S Drew
J Upton*, Lincecum*, Cliff Lee*, Alex Gordon, and Goldschmidt for Fielder, Ry Zimmerman*, and Matt Cain*
Utley* and Kimbrel for Youkilis and Ichiro*
Utley* and Hamels* for J Upton* and Ethier
*Restricted Free Agent Bid Season for all keepers coming off expiring contracts* (mid Jan to late Feb). Many top line keepers get stolen from the better squads during this period as top finishers get less $; this winter the stolen included Braun, J-Bats, J-Up, Verly, Hamels, Kinsler, Bruce, Panda, Pence, McCann, Butler, ARod and Cain

Matt Cain and Dan Hudson for Gallardo

Wainwright and Ackley for Felix, D Espinosa, and Neil Walker
Haren and Waldon for Sabathia
Kinsler, Alex Gordon, Moustakas, and Markakis for J Bautista, Heyward, Arancibia, Kendrys Morales, and Chisenhall
Open Draft for all non keepers (about 125 men kept)
Zambrano for Yonder
Butler, Ethier, Alex Gordon, and Bumgarner for Votto
Halladay, G Beckham, and Crow for H Kendrick, R Betancourt, B McCarthy, Arancibia, and M Thornton
McCutchen, Melky, Nathan, and Danks for Ellsbury and Romero
Halladay, Kendrys Morales, and Broxton for Braun, J Weeks, and Pomeranz
Cespedes, Sale, and Pineda for Strasburg, Valencia, and Juan Rivera

J Weeks and Pomeranz for Brandon Crawford and Pineda
Lohse for Aaron Hill
Trumbo and Mesoraco for Ubaldo and Pierzynski
J Weeks for J Santana
J Weeks, Buerle, and Lidge for Dickey, Billingsly, and Chacin
Sale for Saltalamacchia
Panda, Niese, and Worley for Holliday and Youkilis
Votto and J Bautista for Halladay, Teixeira, Pence, and Andrus
Infante for Marmol

Giancarlo Stanton and Motte for Halladay, Pence, and Prado
Teixeira, Trumbo, and Billingsley for Sheilds, Aramis, and Bell
Reyes for Andrus, Aramis, and Motte
Trumbo, Ike Davis, and Billingsley for LaHair, Middlebrooks, and Desmond
J Bautista, Bonifacio, Nova, and Pettitte for Shields, Kenley Jansen, Ruiz, and Peavy
J Bautista for Longoria
Zobrist for Bonifacio
Teixeira and J Schafer for Zobrist, Trumbo, and Fuentes
Teixeira, Bell, and Rafael Soriano for Zobrist, Infante, and Middlebrooks
A-Roid for Brett Myers and Dolis
Kendrys Morales and T Milone for Infante
Lawrie, Alexei Ramirez, Bedard, Rasmus, and Sorgard for Zobrist, Middlebrooks, Matt Adams, J Schafer, and C Lewis
MVP****NL11,AL07,AL05,NL04,ALNL03,ALNL02,NL01,ALNL00,AL99,ALNL98,ALNL96 RIP Cammi
Cmon Bud, NOW is the time to sack up and force feed an Olympic style drug program down Fehr's fat throat. Save OUR game from these blatant cheaters!

Halfway through April I traded Colby Lewis, Chase Headley, and Brandon League for Desmond Jennings and some scraps

Yesterday I traded Josh Reddick for Alejandro de Aza

(I need SBs pretty badly and have a huge lead in HR and RBI... if the trend continues, de Aza will soon be on the DL alongside my Jennings and Austin Jackson)

We've also had:

Zobrist/Sabathia for Uggla/C.Perez
Stanton/Darvish for Hamilton (before his insane month of May)
Willingham for Bell
Hanrahan for de Aza/Shaw
Victorino for Boesch/Lincecum
Kershaw for J.Upton (NL only league)

there is part of CBS fantasy which lists players trades. I don't know if there's a page for all players, but you can go to a specific players page and then "list more trades" to see a list of trades involving that player.
I'm guessing that would only be in CBS leagues? but still you can get an idea of a players trade value.
Dan Uggla for example.. ... ll/all/all
