Five Things to Remember When Suggesting a Trade

  1. Players are, in effect, properties. It isn't just about their talent, but their contracts. Would you rather buy a two bedroom house for $100,000 (David DeJesus) or a three bedroom house in the same neighborhood for $250,000 (Lance Berkman)?
  2. Even without considering his contract, Jose Guillen is close to valueless on the trade market, so don't wear yourself out thinking of trade scenarios involving him.
  3. Ditto Scott Podsednik.
  4. Along the lines of #1, prospects and pre-arbitration players are extremely valuable, and teams realize this now more than ever.
  5. It is always possible that one team, even the Royals, could blatantly rip off another, but keep in mind that Dayton Moore already runs the Royals.

Bluebird Banter Plays With BtB's Trade Value Calculator

Bluebird Banter, SBN's Toronto Blue Jays blog, dissected the trade value of the team's major contributors using our Trade Value Calculator. I love reading analysis like this at more and more sites. Consider this a plea for people to do more of it. Are you a fan of a team that's out of playoff contention? Figure out some fair trades for your biggest trading chips. Enjoying Dave Cameron's series on trade value at Fangraphs? Calculate what some of the players are actually worth. It would all be interesting to read at your blog, but this research would make great FanPost fodder here at BtB, too. Toronto's top three trade values: - Alex Rios: $53M - Roy Halladay: $28M - Scott Rolen: $19M

Trade Value Calculator

This seems valuable as the trade deadline approaches. Plug in some salary and performance data and spit out trade value. Boom. (Of course, team context needs to be added subjectively afterwards.)
