It is a crazy Monday and the deals are flying. The Diamondbacks seem committed to trading Varsho. I actually wrote about this LAST YEAR. I would say much of what I said about Mantiply and Varsho is still true. I think if we did this deal now Varsho would be a CF first.
The trade then was
The Astros no longer need Walker. So what is the deal now? Just remember I can produce baseless rumor better than all of the click baiter.
Here is MY deal TODAY
12/12 Update- This NOW won't happen.
I would add Maldy (-3.5- for some reason in tool but not in Astros team) to this deal and sign Vazquez to start at catcher. Strommy would love to have Maldy in Arizona to work with his pitchers.
Varsho and Diaz/ Lee to back-up Maldy while Varsho splits time in CF with Meyers.
Mantiply the LHRP I have always wanted.
IF you had to add Lee to the deal.
Arizona may need a third team in this deal to send McCormick to that might be able to get more pitching.
This deal make so much sense for the Astros and yet I know people will hate it.
McCormick's Trade value will never be higher
Losing Garcia hurts and probably means this team has to get a SP
Varsho is a unique talent capable of splitting time in C and CF
Mantiply fills a role of need at LHRP
Here is how I would allocate playing time
Who says no?
