This week's FAAB:

I made a trade today. Here's my rationale.

Arrieta is 15 next year. Seager is 12. Wash, pretty much.

Rondon is 7 next year. E Perez is 3 for the next two years after this one. And could be saving games in a few weeks. Or never. But that's a fair bet. (Rondon's saves don't matter much this year.)

Clint Robinson is a sub. Nick Williams is an excellent prospect, but he's not there yet. Having him at $15 means a hard choice if he makes an ML team in 2017. There is a plus in control here, but not a ton of value.

I think I gain future value for present value that isn't working for me, especially if Arrieta continues to struggle. 

But I'm also reminded why it is fun to trade. Stir it up!

I too thought that $9 sounded 'keeperish', but I realized that $9 would never get him.

My quick take on it was that any normal price and he would be a fine as trade bait to a contender.

I thought everyone else would bid 15 ... I wanted him ... so I bid 16.

14 is my price for him as a keeper next season so I bid it.

If I had more money, I would have bid more on him for this year.

I'd be interested to hear the logic(s) behind the bids.  We decided $9 was the "definite keeper" amount, though I suppose we might have kept him for 11, 12....so maybe our bid was light.  But we'd never have bid $17.

Others?

Here's the funny thing about Nola.

Last week, the moment I realized that Nola was waived, I immediately went in to put in a bid so that I didn't forget later (as I often do).

Instead of trying to overthink it, I just put in $17 as kind of a 'placeholder' bid to make sure I had something submitted. My thinking was that later in the week I would examine Nola in depth and give him a proper bid.

Of course, as it turns out, I forgot all about it. And somehow it turns out that $17 was the exact perfect bid.

Apathy is the mother of genius.


Nola's immediately on the block, btw.
