2014 Traded-Player Leaderboards

While it’s really only fair to base one’s assessment of a trade on the information available at the time of said trade, that doesn’t preclude one from also exhibiting some interest in how the various traded parties end up performing with their new respective clubs.

What follows are two links designed to monitor that kind of performance — each to a leaderboard featuring players traded both (a) during the month of July and (b) to a contending club, where contending is defined, in this case, as a club that possessed better than 10% odds of qualifying for the divisional series as of July 31st.

Here are the relevant links: Traded Batters / Traded Pitchers.

Please note that:

  • Leaderboards are set to the “August” split; and
  • It’s entirely possible that the author has omitted a name or two, nor should readers hesitate to leave a comment to that effect; and
  • Through Sunday, at least, Justin Masterson has recorded the highest park-adjusted batting line (tied with Jonny Gomes) of all players traded to a contending team.

Carson Cistulli has published a book of aphorisms called Spirited Ejaculations of a New Enthusiast.
