    Wow! Of course IMHO this trade has no chance of happening but I give you credit for your creativity. I would be interested in reading your comments on how you came up with this trade and how it benefits each team. Also, it must have been fun trying to get the trade values to come out and still trying to be fair to each team. Thanks for posting the trade proposal.

  2. Spikes, on this trade Cleveland would not want to take on Braun and his contract and I doubt the Rockies would want to trade their top prospect Rodgers and Arenado for the package listed above.

      Hockeyjohn you’re right. Braun wouldn’t go to the Indians in a trade. He has “No Trade Rights” and he said he’d only approve a trade to a west coast team. In this proposal I assume Braun wouldn’t be traded and Naquin would stay with the Indians but it’s not my trade so I don’t know what the creator of the trade would like to do. That would make the trade values lopsided but again, its not my trade so I’ll let Mr. anonymous figure that out.

      I agree with both opinions. The value for Arenado I feel is too low which makes it very difficult to put a package together that would be enough. As far as Braun, I forgot about his no trade clause. As far as the salary, the Indians would have the space to pay it but may not want to spend their money on whatever Braun has left. My thinking is that the Brewers would like to move him on this scenario where they are taking on so much new salary. In this trade and a similar one I posted I was looking for a “all in” team that could deal for Lindor and Arenado and Milwaukee was the best one in my eyes. So I tried a few things to make it work. Would either of you have any other deals you think would work for the same scenario? (Doesn’t have to be Milwaukee)

  3. I don’t see Lindor or Clevinger being traded at this time. Teams asked on both players and Cleveland will always listen, but their goal is to contend in 2020 so I see both starting 2020 as an Indians. At the trade deadline, Cleveland may add or subtract depending on how they are positioned at that time. I do like that you are trying to get MLB ready talent back to Cleveland in your trades, but again I don’t see a trade happening at this time.

    As far as Colorado, Arenado is unhappy, yet the their owner thinks that they will do well. His optout in his contract also confuses his value. Colorado will want a strong package, yet teams will may offer less do to the optout. It may be hard to find the middle ground in an Arenado deal.
