Question by AnswerBot: What is Options Trading?
I invest in stocks and bonds now, but I don’t know what options are or how they’re traded.

Best answer:

Answer by zman492
Options are contracts that give the buyer (holder) the right to buy (if it is a call option) or to sell (if it is a put option) something for a certain price for a set period of time. The seller (writer) of the option receives payment from the buyer, and in return accepts the obligation to fulfill the contract if the holder chooses to exercise his right.

for a short tutorial on how they work.

Question by BaseballDude: Should I trade A-Rod for David Wright?
Should I take this or wait until I can see what A-Rod does?

It seems like a good deal for me, but if A-Rod comes back swinging he could be better than Wright.

Thanks in advance!

Question by Alex: Adieu Le Toux! What do you guys think of the Le Toux trade to Vancouver?
As a die hard Union fan I strongly lament our loss and feel strong distaste for the Union management, but I want to be able too look at the issue from a non biased viewpoint. One one hand, I firmly believe that our star player should not be disrespected in such a manner to the point where he “would be happy to just retire than play for Peter again”, but on the other hand, his salary demand was unreasonable and his early leave of Bolton was a little suspicious. So who do you think is right?

Best answer:

Answer by JC
I’m a Galaxy fan, but I think the trade is good for both sides.

The trade will be good for LeToux as a player. He’ll be in a more comfortable environment with another good forward (Hassli) by his side.

Vermes runs a more defense-oriented system, so LeToux is not necessarily relevant there; and the allocation money will probably help them swing another trade for someone that fits in the system better.

As a Galaxy fan, I can definitely say that I look forward to seeing LA and Vancouver play because that will be a shootout of a game!

You should sit tight with what you have for now. Unless you have other deals in mind, the last thing you need is another PG, even one as productive as Chauncey. You already have Andre Miller (who will put up solid numbers), D-Wade (who is PG eligible), Bibby (who you may or may not be so solid in terms of overall stats), Nate Robinson and (who will give you huge nights and not-so-huge nights). If you’re looking for 3s, you have Murphy, Bibby, Turkoglu, Sheed, and Peja already–not to mention ex-Captain Jack (there’s somebody you can get rid of).
