    Just testing out proposed trade in this ESPN article. Turns out, it grades out ok.

    “For it to work, my take is it has to be with a team seeking that one final piece of the puzzle while also willing to absorb a big payroll hit (eliminating a team like Cleveland or Oakland). The Cardinals may be the best fit. Using Sherman’s idea, I’ve included Eovaldi, while the Red Sox get Edman, who could replace Betts in right field or take over at second base, as well outfield prospect Arozarena and useful bat Martinez. Cecil is included as a salary offset.

    The Red Sox drop from $221 million in payroll to about $187 million, and the Cardinals go from $176 to $210. Betts is a big step up from Marcell Ozuna in the outfield, and the Cardinals still have plenty of outfield depth with Dexter Fowler, Harrison Bader, Lane Thomas, Tyler O’Neill and top prospect Dylan Carlson. The big question is whether the Cardinals would be willing to enter payroll territory they haven’t come close to before. For one year of Betts, plus added payroll depth, it’s worth aiming higher than another 91-71 team.”
