Inspired by JTB’s Trade Grades, I decided to do a little research and rank the top ten TR’s in the history of Fashwet.
Here we go!
10) Fashwet Football League (2015)
JTB receives: QB Andrew Luck and WR Brandin Cooks
Matt receives: QB Philip Rivers and TE Travis Kelce
Tuesday, Bloody Tuesday – none of us will ever forget. I will apologize again, in writing, for my behavior that day. I should have never threatened to veto the trade or put it to a vote, but JTB’s lack of morals and total lack of respect for Matt was something I had never witnessed before and hope to never witness again. If Andrew Luck didn’t get hurt (he appeared in just 7 games in 2015) this would have been one of the most lopsided trades in Fashwet history, as Brandin Cooks finished the season with 1,138 yards and 9 TDs. The fact that Luck got injured does not take away JTB’s malicious intent, which is why this historic swap just makes the cut. Remember kids: karma is real.
9) Fashwet League Baseball (2015)
Jimmy D receives: SP Matt Harvey
Matt receives: SP Jeff Samardzija and OF Joc Pederson
This is what happens when you get high around a WCM. In the only draft day trade in Fashwet history, a pilled-out Matt traded me his third round pick (Harvey) for my sixth round pick (Samardzija) and a player in Pederson who had just 28 major league at bats at the time. I will never forget the look of shock on the faces of Brendan and JTB. Truly one of the happiest moments of my life.
8) Fashwet League Baseball (2017)
Logan receives: SP Jacob deGrom and OF Kole Calhoun
Griff-IN receives: OF Eric Thames and SP Dylan Bundy
I still quiver whenever I think about this trade. Griff-IN, brand new to Fashwet, bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, thought he had a friend in Logan. He thought he had someone he could go to for advice. He looked at Logan as a big brother. Little did he know he was dealing with a black-hearted, unscrupulous snake whose moral compass points straight to the depths of Hell. Jacob deGrom, a certified ace, for a FITP outfielder and Dylan Bundy – wow. If we learn anything from this, it’s that Logan can never be trusted.
7) Fashwet Football League (2016)
Jay receives: RB Devonta Freeman and RB Jay Ajayi
KG receives: RB DeAngelo Williams and RB Theo Riddick
I will never understand what KG was thinking when he pulled the trigger on this deal early in the 2016 season. Devonta Freeman (1,079 yards, 11 TDs) and Jay Ajayi (1,272 yards, 8 TDs) both finished the season as top 10 running backs and KG traded them for three weeks of DeAngelo Williams and Theo Riddick. Sadly, this isn’t even the worst trade KG has made – just keep reading!
6) Fashwet Football League (2015)
Jimmy D receives: WR Brandon Marshall
Brendan receives: WR Martavis Bryant and TE Austin Sefarian-Jenkins
To be honest, at the time I thought this was an extremely mutually beneficial trade 😉 Martavis Bryant has all the talent in the world and Austin Sefarian-Jenkins was an up-and-coming tight end destined for stardom. Unfortunately for Brendan, both players’ careers were derailed by off-the-field issues and Marshall (1,502 yards, 14 TDs) went on to lead me to my first FFL championship. But wait! There’s more…
5) Fashwet Football League (2015)
Jimmy D receives: WR Odell Beckham Jr. and TE Austin Sefarian-Jenkins
Brendan receives: RB Eddie Lacy, TE Jimmy Graham and WR Jordan Matthews
One week later, with Brendan running a 102 degree fever and under the influence of way too much Nyquil, I hit him with another MBT 😉 Brendan desperately needed a running back and me, being the selfless friend that I am, hooked him up with the ever-so-graceful Fat Eddie. Yes, I got Odell Beckham Jr. and his 1,367 yards and 10 TDs, but it’s all about team needs! What a year it was for FCJD.
4) Fashwet Football League (2012)
Logan receives: QB Aaron Rodgers and RB Adrian Peterson
Brendan receives: QB Philip Rivers, RB Jamaal Charles and RB Darren McFadden
Let’s take a gander at Rodgers and Peterson’s numbers in 2012, shall we?
Aaron Rodgers – 4,295 yards, 39 TDs, 8 INTs
Adrian Peterson – 2,097 yards, 13 TDs (won 2012 NFL MVP)
Yeah, Logan went on to win his third title in four years.
3) Fashwet League Baseball (2017)
JTB receives: 3B Kris Bryant
Andy receives: OF A.J. Pollock and 3B Ryon Healy
Desperate for Daddy’s approval, Andy traded away reigning MVP Kris Bryant for an oft-injured player still on the disabled list and a FITP third baseman who plays for the fucking Oakland Athletics. An FLB champion in 2014, Andy’s epic fall from grace would make even Bill Cosby feel good about himself. Let’s hope FashDash can get Andy back on track.
2) Fashwet League Baseball (2014)
Jimmy D receives: SP Max Scherzer
KG receives: SP Andrew “Proven Ace” Cashner, 1B Matt Adams and 1B Jon Singleton
1) Fashwet Basketball Association (2016)
JTB receives: SF Paul George
Jay receives: PG Michael Carter-Williams and C Marcin Gortat
Ah, the trade that gave birth to The Rat. I have never been more disgusted in my life. No question the darkest day in the history of Fashwet. This was Jay’s first year in FBA and his first year following basketball in any capacity. And here we have JTB, his “friend”, selling him waiver wire garbage for one of the top 10 players in the league. This trade went against every value us as Fashwets hold dear. However, even with the ROTC, JTB fell short in the FBA Finals. Thank you, Lubin! FJTB!
Fashwet Football League (2016)
JTB receives: WR Odell Beckham Jr. and TE Coby Fleener
John receives: WR T.Y. Hilton, WR Marvin Jones and TE Hunter Henry
Fashwet League Baseball (2016)
Jimmy D receives: SP Max Scherzer
