    Brewers take a chance on Eovaldi and his large contract. For taking that chance they also get 3 of Boston’s top 30 prospects to help their farm system and all 3 have a chance to be MLB players. They also get Bradley for one year to play CF.

    Boston gets Cain, a gold glove CF, a high ceiling pitcher that had a bad 2019 but a great 2018 and outfield depth in Broxton.

    Eovaldi and Cain’s contracts are almost an even swap. Boston gets rid of Bradley’s 11M contract for this year so they save some money to help them get under the tax penalty but giving up some good prospects. Boston hopes Burnes reaches his potential and if he does, he moves into Eovaldi’s spot in the rotation and they have a good pitcher at a low cost for a lot of years.

    Fair trade?

    Caine is good, but this trade would gut the RS farm system.

      I agree it would be a big price to pay. I think the Red Sox would have to be convinced that Burnes could be a possible top of the rotation pitcher in order for them to agree to the trade.

        I would rather try to get a combo of dalbec and chavis then the prospects mentioned. You then have the infield covered next year with dalbec and chavis at the corners and Keston and urias up the middle.

      I was actually thinking about that but I just think Casas has a greater upside then Chavis and I also like Chatham chances to be a quality infielder and he or Urias could play third and the other play short. Casas is their #1 rated prospect but he is a couple of years away. Chatham could play in the majors this year. Chatham had a nice year in AAA but doesn’t have much power. If Boston would put Dalbec in the trade instead of Chatham I would have no problems with that.
