Well, Fantasy baseball fans, we are now well and truly in the middle of crazy season. Trade rumours are flying around left, right and centre and Fantasy owners will be keeping a close eye on the future of various big name stars like Billy Hamilton, J.T. Realmuto and Gerrit Cole. With a few blockbuster trades expected in the coming months, the Major League Baseball landscape may be about to change dramatically.

Can anyone topple the Houston Astros after their incredible 2017 season? The Los Angeles Dodgers will be desperate to get revenge after falling short on the big stage, so 2018 could be one of the most exciting MLB seasons in recent memory. Here are a few key trades that have already gone down – and a look at how they will affect the 2018 Fantasy baseball campaign…

Matt Kemp (Atlanta Braves to Los Angeles Dodgers)

The Los Angeles Dodgers sent shockwaves across the majors when they traded four players away to bring two-time All-Star outfielder Matt Kemp back to his original home. One of the biggest reasons for L.A.’s trade was to clear up plenty of cap space ahead of what could be an intense free agency market after the 2018 season.

With the likes of Josh Donaldson, Bryce Harper and Manny Machado all expected to hit the market a year from now, it wasn’t a huge surprise to see the Dodgers clear a few salaries to make way for a hefty year of spending. Kemp is one to watch in 2018, as he could be a major player in Fantasy – especially as he is likely to go in the later rounds after a down season.

Dee Gordon (Miami Marlins to Seattle Mariners)

After spending half of 2016 on the sidelines with a PED suspension, two time All-Star Gordon showed his quality in 2017. He recorded 201 hits this year – an impressive number and one that rivals his greatest MLB season. In addition, he finished the campaign with a .308 batting average and 60 steals, the second highest figures of his career.

The Seattle Mariners are going to improve with Gordon (expected to shift to centre field) on the roster and fans are excited about what the future holds. As of December 18, the online betting odds show the Mariners at 40-to-1 to go on and win the 2018 World Series. Fantasy owners will hope that Gordon can build on what he did this year and inspire Seattle to go the distance next year.

Giancarlo Stanton (Miami Marlins to New York Yankees)

Another high profile name that has left Miami for greener pastures is Giancarlo Stanton, who has been destined for a move to the New York Yankees for some time. A four-time All-Star, including this year when he also was named National League MVP after smacking 59 homers (see video below), he deserves an opportunity to win the World Series and he should get that with the Yankees.

Stanton’s stats for 2017 were seriously impressive and he can take New York to the next level if he is able to emulate last season’s form. At age 28, he is in superb physical shape and is in the prime of his career. Stanton will be a very high pick in Fantasy formats this year but he is well worth it. He should be an instant success in his new surroundings.

Now it’s your turn. Let us know in the comments below what you think the biggest move has been so far this offseason.

Let the Games Begin

While this hottie couldn’t resist David Wright, Tim opted to pick up someone else with his first rounder. Well folks, now that 2009 is well underway, is there a better way to commence the New Year than getting that first league draft of 2009 under my belt? I’m not talking mock draft, but the real deal.

Fantasy Notes: Prior Down Again

July 17, 2006 | by RotoRob | Comments (0)
Afflicted with a strained oblique, he was placed on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to July 5, making him eligible to be activated later this week. Prior is starting to believe what countless Cubs fans already do: “The goat is starting to look real.” At any rate, Prior was scheduled to throw a bullpen session today to determine if he’ll go Thursday or wait until the weekend to make his next start… assuming the goat allows it.

Fantasy Notes: Hendrickson and Hall to Dodgers

Seo’s value goes up too, as he gets to go back to starting. Bear in mind, however, that he moves away from one of the best pitching parks in the majors and has looked much better as a reliever than as a starter this year.
