    A very unrealistic yet highly satisfying trade for all parties. However, if you’re the Red Sox, you make this trade with the intent to extend Syndergaard. Even if they elected not to, they would still be getting half a seasons work out of him in a rotation that needs help. In addition Quantrill would be a great addition to the rotation even if Syndergaard doesn’t end up working out. The addition of Naquin gives them a replacement for the impotent Benintendi.

    On Cleveland’s end – they are successfully unloading Lindor for a huge package. And although the trade does force them to sacrifice a young stud in Quantrill, the Indians have the young pitching depth to make it a worthy sacrifice. In the trade they acquire a young power hitting Smith, Andrew Benintendi who could flourish in a new location, and a top prospect in Triston Casas

    For the mets, this seems likely to be a realistic package in order to acquire Lindor. If the deal was straight with the Indians – it may simply be Smith and Syndergaard for Lindor… however the Indians would not be looking to take on Syndergaard with a year left on his contract and no interest in resigning him. Therefor the third party comes into play – otherwise the Mets would be forced to include either Nimmo, Conforto, or Gimenez in the package to the Indians which would feel like too much of a haul.
