Trading Good Luck for Bad

Why on earth would you want to trade good luck for bad luck?! If you believe that luck all evens out in the end - that's why. It's always worth taking a look at which players are the beneficiaries of above average luck, and consider moving them for players in the opposite position. If you do, and the luck does even out, you've just come out way ahead.

Here are some hitters and pitchers to consider moving now while their run of luck is still going good:

  • Howie Kendrick
  • Fred Lewis
  • Xavier Nady
  • Adam Jones
  • Joakim Soria
  • Justin Duchscherer
  • Scott Olsen
  • Ryan Dempster

And a few players on a bad streak who's luck may be about to turn:


  • Kenji Johjima
  • Paul Konerko
  • Austin Kearns
  • Mark Ellis
  • Bronson Arroyo
  • Nate Robertson
  • Randy Johnson
  • Carlos Silva
