This Week in Fantasy brought to you by the dually crowned “Miss Real Dirty Mets”.
5 scoring weeks left to the season. “Niese’s Nose” and “Mike Pelfail” cannot afford to lose a game and are close to being mathematically eliminated. Every other team is still in the hunt.
The trade deadline is Friday. So all trades need to be proposed and accepted by 12pm on August 3rd.
Also for the teams falling out of contention, this is a keeper league and if you decide to play next year, you are allowed to keep 3 players on your current roster. So, keep that in mind with trades or picking up a rookie on the waiver wire.
A couple of trades have occurred while I’ve been away on business trips the last couple weeks. So, let’s take a look. “Neise’s Nose” traded Aaron Hill to “Texas I’m Stuck In” for Shin-Soo Choo. So far over the last 15 days Hill has netted 47 points and Choo has gained 45.5. Looks like a wash to me.
The other trade was “Reconsider Baby” trading Mike Trout to “Dickey’s Disciples” for Bryce Harper and Josh Reddick. Over the last 15 days Trout has netted 66 Points while Bryce Harper has netted 35 and Reddick 37.5. The Disciples have made out well so far but Trout has been out of the lineup for the last couple days due to a left knee contusion.
