I’m in a prognosticating mood; here are three July trade deadline predictions.
- Phillies acquire Joe Blanton for Carlos Carrasco and Adrian Cardenas. Pat Gillick’s last hurrah.
- Padres acquire Jason Bay for Kevin Kouzmanoff and Wade LeBlanc. Bay returns to San Diego to provide some power and solve the left field issue. Chase Headley takes over at third for the Padres.
- Rays acquire Javier Vazquez for Wade Davis and Desmond Jennings. Just a fun prediction to ponder. In this scenario the Sox opt for a complete rebuild and the Rays make a somewhat surprising playoff push.
- Your turn. Why are my proposals ridiculous? What reasonable July trade scenarios can you concoct?
