    I love this trade idea because it sends Murphy home to NY, it returns Sheffield to a team that could use not only a starter, but a lefty, and it sends Lindor to his most logical destination.

    Margevicius returns to his home in Northern Ohio, Frazier and Fraley give the Indians some controllable young outfielders, Loaisiga and Sikkema are two potential starters that could make an impact in the bullpen, pitchers that Cleveland covets.

    The Mariners take a chance on trading Murphy for a younger version of himself with the homes he can backup at catcher and DH some games. Jasson Dominguez is the piece they were hoping for two years ago in the Paxton trade and ironically they would get him by returning Sheffield to the Yanks. Andujar, Mercado, and Sanchez are bouce back candidates. Clase would combine with Munoz to make a fearsome backend. The Indians might want to move on from Clase as most won’t even remember he was on the team and they have more to gain by dumping him when he is already out of mind.

    Combining this trade with the Mariners, Brewers trade would give them a combination of Munoz, Hader, Clase, and Williams in the pen. They would immediately have room for Mercado by subtracting Fraley and zhaniger in the previous trade. They could play Andujar at 3B and leave France at 2B, until a long term solution can be determined.

    Even with Lewis, Kelenic, Rodriguez, and Trammell, there is room for Dominguez since he is a couple years away. By then Lewis or Trammell could be traded and the remaining 4 could split time in the OF and at DH.

    TBH I don’t think Cleveland would bite on this trade. It meets their primary need, but the rest of the pieces they receive are filler.

    Yes, they’re getting a controllable MLB ready outfielder in Frazier. However, Loasigia & Margevicius don’t fit their needs, as Cleveland already has controllable starting pitching for days.

    They also don’t want to move on from Clase. Yes, he was suspended for steroid use but to the front office that just means he didn’t lose a year of eligibility in a short season. They want him at the back end of the bullpen pumping 102mph cutters in tandem with Karinchak’s fastball/curve combo for the next 5 years.

    Cleveland could just straight up trade Lindor for Dominguez, if they like his evaluations that much.

      Doesn’t help them because Dominguez is one piece for tomorrow in a farm system that largely fails in the last few years. Lindor amd Ramirez not withstanding. They need to reload the team cheap while Bieber, Plesac, Civale, and McKenzie are cheap. Carrasco is good but aging and is less reliable as he gets older.

      Margevicius was great for the M’s and serves as an insurance piece for the rotation or a lefty arm in the pen. Sikkema looks like a harder throwing southpaw to replace the loss of Hand. Loaisiga is a guy with a high 90s fastball that can also start. Fraley has a ceiling of a 30/30 OF with plus speed amd defense and a floor of a 4th OF who can be a defensive replacement or.a base stealer.

      Mercado and Fraley are equal talents and change of scenary guys. Otherwise the Indians are turning 1 year of Lindor and a reliever who hasn’t pitched in almost two-years professionally into 3 arms that can either start or close out games and a potential All-Star outfielder to plug into one of the wordt OFs in the majors. Yankees wouldn’t trade Dominguez unless they were getting this kind of return. A number two to three starter with 5 years of control, a catcher with 3 years of control who is a season removed from being one of the best all-around at his position, and 1 year of Lindor

      • Stolen Yesterday and I typed similar responses at the same time. That should show that the Indians would not consider this. Your comment about the Indian farm system is also quite wrong. Where did Shane Bieber, Zach Plesac, Aaron Civale, and Tristian McKenzie come from?
        Second, their top 2 prospects are knocking on the door and we will likely see one or possibly both some time in 2021. The Indians have a strong farm system that will help sustain a competitive team for years to come.

        Fraley and Frazier would be pieces of interest, but the rest of the package is not. The Indians have depth at starter with Cal Quantrill, Logan Allen, and others ready or near ready. The Indians traded specifically for Emmanuel Clase to fill a specific need. Again, I don’t see them trading him.

      How would the Yankees keep Frazier? They are tied to Stanton and Judge with Frazier nowhere near capable of being a starting CF. This trade would cost them a 17 year old, talented, but 17 years old and a few inconsistent players for all the missing pieces to their roster.

      • Stanton will be their DH to try to keep him healthy and in their lineup. I think the Yankees will want Frazier in LF, Hicks in CF, with Judge in right.

  3. Cleveland has outstanding, controllable starting pitching with depth so no need for fringe pieces like Margevicius and Loaisigna. They traded for Clase to get a power arm for a bullpen that lacked power arms. Clase, with last season’s rookie, James Karinchak will form the back end of the Indians bullpen for the next several years. I don’t see the Indians trading Emmanuel Clase.

    I also don’t see the Yankees including Dominguez in any trade. Also, I think that the Yankees will try to keep Frazier if at all possible.

    Don’t see the Yankees giving up their future in Dominguez and Frazier for basically 1 yr of Lindor and a pitcher who has less K’s than IP’ed and has a 1.3 WHIP. No thanks.

  5. Keith Henry

    Don’t think the M’s would trade away 2 starting pitchers and their starting catcher for outfield depth, which is the one place they are already strong and a bunch of “bounce-back” candidates.
