Got a trade proposal?

Imagine you’re the GM of your favorite team. Who are you trading this spring? Use our popular trade simulator to figure out a fair deal.

How accurate are Jim Bowden's trade proposals?

The former GM is the only prominent national writer we know of who often proposes his own trades, or evaluates proposals from fans or local beat writers. How well have those trade ideas correlated to the market? We audited each proposal in articles published since August 2019, and tested them against both our model and the actual market returns.

Which players are off to extremely hot (or extremely cold) starts, and thus may have their trade value impacted the most? We review those cases, announce when to expect our first round of updates, and discuss yet another questionable Jim Bowden trade article.
