Content descriptions

General Note: Few topics in baseball elicit the same passionate responses from fans as player trades. In attempt to bring some objectivity to such an emotional topic, Doug Decatur, a former statistical consultant for the Reds, Brewers, Cubs and Astros, uses Win Shares, a stat developed by the famous Bill James, to determine the best and worst trades in baseball history. He also provides red flags to look for when evaluating future trades.
