With 2020's MLB Trade Deadline behind us, Scott and Jeff look at the winners (Mike Clevinger, Bobby Dalbec) and losers (Francisco Mejia, pretty much every fringe Rockies hitter) from trade season. And it's not just you (well, it is sort of you) but trades seem to be declining in fantasy baseball leagues this season. Scott and Jeff share their tips to pull off trades with your league mates. Hint: the other team has to benefit too. We tip our caps to the immortal Nelson Cruz who's putting up his highest OPS in a season in his career at the age of 40. And in honor of trading for everyone, we wrap up the show with a draft of our favorite San Diego Padres of all time.
