    I feel like my trade will get downvoted with all these moving parts, but hear me out lol.

    From the Padres perspective, it sucks to give up this much young pitching, but their rotation will be anchored by McKenzie, Lucchesi, Paddack, and Lamet for the next several years, with guys like Davies, Bolanos, and others possibly seeing a lot of time there as well. On top of that, shedding some of Myers’ contract and adding Senzel to an already stacked position player core will give them a lot of money to invest in the rotation in the coming years. Zeferjahn and Ashcraft are both pitchers who were drafted in the early rounds this past summer and really impressed; both should debut sometime in 2022 if things pan out. As for the position players, Senzel has crazy high upside and will be a great replacement for Profar, while Ervin will take over Myers’ role as the right-handed 4th outfielder/right-field platoon partner. The Pads’ recent signing of Dozier gives them even more flexibility. He can be Senzel’s backup as well as Hosmer’s right-handed counterpart at first.

    From the Red Sox perspective, they are getting two quality, controllable starters for minimal cost. Quantrill can slide into the rotation immediately, while Morejon might start the year in AAA, although his upside is pretty high. Of course, some think Morejon will end up in the bullpen, but he’d likely be really dominant there; it also just so happens the Red Sox bullpen is pretty weak. Myers can be a nice right-handed option at both first base and the OF. The Pillar signing makes JBJ kind of redundant, even more so with Myers on the roster. Chatham is blocked by Boegarts at SS and Chavis/Downs at 2B. Paying Myers 12.5 mil a year for the next three years isn’t ideal, but trading JBJ offsets that cost this year, and it’s probably a necessary cost considering their lack of pitching in the mid-upper minors. Likewise, Myers should be a nice complementary piece during that time.

    For the Reds, trading a potential franchise centerpiece is really tough, but he’s mostly blocked next year and a change of scenery could be good for him. JBJ is a nice upgrade in the CF, especially for a team lacking in quality defense. It also allows Akiyama to start the year at AAA and ease into the starting CF job. JBJ would also make Ervin redundant; Aquino would take over as Winker’s right-handed platoon partner. Meanwhile, Profar would be a really nice upgrade at short. Patino is one of the best pitching prospects in the game and could potentially replace Bauers or DeSclafani, who are both free agents at the end of the year. Chatham could compete with Jose Garcia for the starting SS job in 2021, or he could settle in as a quality utility guy this year. The only issue I see with this trade is that it would add about 14 million to an already bloated payroll; that said, Profar and Chatham make Galvis a bit redundant, so they could trade him and save about 5 million.

    The Red Sox would like this deal. They get two starters and dump JBJ without much loss.
