We’re only a week away from the Trade Deadline and things over the weekend have heated with new teams emerging as potential buyers and sellers. Now with the Trade Deadline a week away, I thought I’d finish up my 3-part series about the trading deadline with 5 deals the fans should be rooting for. With this article I’m going to throw away my Indians bias and put on my MLB fan cap to find deals that will make the ride into October much more interesting. I’ll admit most of these trades probably won’t happen, but in my opinion would make other Divisional and potential Pennant races that much more interesting. So let’s get crazy with this shall we?
Trade Proposal- Mets acquire OF Jay Bruce in exchange Reds acquire SP Zach Wheeler
Trade Proposal- Dodgers acquire SP Chris Archer and OF Desmond Jennings in exchange Rays acquire SP Jose De Leon, SP Grant Holmes, OF Starling Heredia
Trade Proposal- Nationals acquire CP Wade Davis in exchange Royals acquire SP Erick Fedde, OF Andrew Stevenson, and RP Koda Glover
Trade Proposal- Indians acquire OF Carlos Beltran in exchange Yankees acquire SP Mike Clevinger and SS Yu-Cheng Chang
Trade Proposal- Astros acquire SP Chris Sale in exchange White Sox acquire SS Alex Bregman, OF Daz Cameron, SP Francis Martes, OF Derek Fisher, 2B/OF Tony Kemp
Now these trades aren’t predictions, but these are trades every fan should be rooting for to happen. All of these trades would make the next few months of the baseball season very interesting. While I don’t expect half of these to even happen, all I know is that these are very realistic scenarios for these players. That will do it for my Trade Deadline Preview articles, you can bet I’ll have a Post-Trade Deadline article here next week. We’re already seeing the madness of the Trade Deadline pick up and you can bet as teams finally figure out where they stand as buyers and sellers that the trade market will only intensify with trades we might not see coming. Trust me we’ve seen trades come out of nowhere before and you can bet with this trade deadline, one thing is for sure, anything can and will happen at this Trade Deadline.
