A lot of analysis of the trades for teams in the Rumors Thread, but with so many trades I thought it would be good to discuss fantasy winners and losers. A few-

David Price- Winner(?). Better team, easier schedule, better parks to pitch in.

Emilio Bonifacio- Loser. Went from leading off and playing everyday to potentially splitting time with BJ Upton (or so it sounds).

Cespedes- Moves to a better hitter's park, but his splits are much better at home than on the road. And he leaves the team that leads the majors in runs. Slight downgrade, maybe a push.

Lester- Winner. Great park. Great team.

Asdrubal- Slight loss? Thinking he may go to the back end of an NL lineup. Not loving the move.


Thoughts on these, or others?

Tavares is the obvious one. But is he good enough (this year) to take advantage?

Loser? Mookie Betts. Gonna be stuck in AAA and might need a trade to see a full time gig in the major leagues.

Khris Davis - loses playing time to Gerardo Parra.

Oscar Taveras - OF spot wide open for him now.

Javier Baez - With Bonifacio gone, 2B is wide open, they can move Alcantara to full time CF.

Francisco Lindor - Not sure if he will get the call soon, but should get a chance in September. He's speed at the SS position with good on base skills.

Betts - OF seems even more crowded right now, and Middlebrooks is going to play 3B, probably not worth the stash in mixed leagues.

All closer stashes - Giles/Quack/Fields/Tazawa etc. No closers were traded, they all lose.

All current closers - guys like Benoit and Qualls are still closing.

I think Cespedes' batting average may rise some since there is way less foul ball territory at Fenway to fly out in. Also tons of doubles off the Green Monster and lazy fly balls to left in Oakland will he homers over same in Boston. He'll be a one-two tandem with Big Papi with Napoli or Craig having his back probably so still has a good line-up around him. And if home splits are better? Well he has a new home park that should be more hitter friendly.

Also the "Red Sox way' hitting wise is plate discipline and working counts. Could help Cespedes to embrace that approach more.

Agree with Farm_Director above that Rajai Davis benefits from Jackson leaving. And if JD Martinez has a slump -- and all players do -- he won't have to be worried about playing time being taken away by Rajai.

Also Rajai as a regular player now has more value cause a part time speed guys are a pain to own. You want a full time guy in that role on a fantasy team.

last I read the Tigers were calling up Ezequiel Carrera. he has a ton of speed in the minors.
http://www.thebaseba...zequiel-Carrera
but I don't know how often he will play.

EDIT: ^ not even in yahoo, even though he played for 2 teams last season.

Franklin was already optioned to AAA, I haven't heard anything on if he will be starting anytime soon but I'd hope so.

Can someone comparatively explain how much larger of a "market" Detroit is from Cleveland? I'm being completely serious. How does Detroit sign big name guys like: Miggy, Verlander, Fielder, V-Mart, and now Price, when the best the Indians can put out there is Mike Brantley (and he's not even getting paid?) This "small market" excuse bull $%&# is nonsense.

I guess I'm just raging because the Indians now have to face arguably the best rotation in baseball.

The Browns came back? Must have missed that season.

Oh you mean the Browns 2.0 as in a football team period.

I always thought Cleveland was also a good baseball town.

Nope, not so much. When the current ballpark opened in 1994, everyone wanted to go because it was new and nice. The Browns left the next year. The Indians spent a ton of money on payroll in the 90s because they sold out 455 straight games.

It's a great sports town when the teams are winning. When the teams are all lousy, the Browns still sell tickets.

My guess is the Cavs might sell some tickets too, hah.

So does Lindor come up early? If so he and his fantasy owner-stashers benefit from Asdrubal trade.
