Trade Scenarios...

I will have 6 trade scenarios for veterans to go to another team as these are rebuilding trades. I will post the trades with the player being link to his stats in the minors. Also I will have a brief description of why I would do that trade.

Trade 1-Cubs/Angels:

Cubs get:
SS Hainley Statia
P Amalio Diaz

Angels get:
1B Derrek Lee
2 million

Description: I think this trade can work out because the Angels need a 1B and the combo for them right now is not doing to job. Also I think Lee will waive his NTC to the Angels because that is where his family lives. The SS is Dominican and maybe Castro can help him out a little and then pitcher will help add depth.

Trade 2-Cubs/Red Sox:

Cubs get:
3B Ryan Chang

Red Sox get:
1B/OF Xavier Nady

Description: Nady is a FA after the season and will not be re-signed so at least get something for him as a mid tier prospect. Nady can play OF for them as all there OF's are injured, can play 1B to give players a rest and can DH as Ortiz slumps.

Trade 3-Cubs/Det:

Cubs get:
P Andrew Oliver

Detroit gets:
SS Ryan Theriot

Description: Theriot is already 30 and has been really inconsistent this year. He is the singles master but is striking out way more and being way too aggressive. So I think the Cubs should also trade him got a mid tier prospect. And Detroit is in the market for a middle infielder.

Trade 4-Cubs/Minn:

Cubs get:
P Deolis Guerra
DH Rene Tosoni

Minn gets:
P Tom Gorzelanny

Description: I think Gorzo is going to be traded as they just put him back in the rotation to showcase him. With Big Z going back to the bullpen. I know Minn will be in the market for SP and not just one. I think there is a good chance they will get a better one like Oswalt or Lee but I think they could use Gorzo to as he is cheap, a lefty and won't cost a lot of players. If the Cubs do trade Gorzo, Cashner can go to the rotation if they keep Zambrano in the bullpen.

Trade 5-Cubs/Bos:

Cubs get:
OF Ryan Kalish
P Felix Doubront

Bos gets:
OF Kosuke Fukudome
13.5 million

Description: The Cubs need to trade OF and get half of Kosuke's contract off the books. Kosuke should be benched and give the starters playing time, Colvin (should be), Soriano and Byrd. I know the Cubs are paying half of his salary but they will have to in any trade. Kosuke would bring the Red Sox a good defender and an occasion good hitter. Kalish looks like he will have a good career but is struggling and the Cubs might be able to get him in the deal.

Trade 6-Cubs/Mets:

Cubs get:
P Josh Stinson
P Jenrry Mejia
P Mark Cohoon

Mets get:
P Ted Lilly

Description: The Cubs need to trade Lilly as his trade value is pretty good and is a FA after the season. And I don't think the Cubs will re-sign him with the good young arms the Cubs have in the minors. Also Cashner who is in the pen, can go to the rotation. Jenrry will be a good starting pitcher and the other two don't look bad either. I think the Mets will strike out on Oswalt and Lee and then they will switch there attention to Lilly.

In all these trades, the Cubs are cutting budget and getting nice players for the future as the Cubs are starting to rebuild (I hope). Finally, I like these trades too.
