In response to Joebreidey's comment:
With Francona desperate for a cribbage partner could Pedroia fit in return for Jason Kipnis, Masterson and Perez? or perhaps for Cabrera, Perez and Masterson in return for Pedroia, Aviles and Aceves.
Kipnis is a decent enough player, but they wouldn't throw in the other two guys.
Pedroia, Ells and Webster for Detroits Jackson and Fister.
This one is pretty far off. AJax is a monster in CF with 3 years left, while Ells has one year left, even assuming he is as good as AJax. Fister is also a decent #2.
Pedroia and Ells and a prospect to Texas for Feldman, Kinsler and Young and some cash.
I wouldn't pick up Feldman or Young from waivers, and Pedey > Kinsler.
Pedroia to KC for Gordon; that would be the centerpiece plus other parts.
I'd think about this. Gordon might have a little upside left, decent contract. The biggest issue I'd have here is that Gordon's splits are not good, and I don't think Fenway will help him at all. But I wouldn't hang up either.
Any other ideas????
I'd ask how much salary Detroit was willing to eat on VMart. See if Youk wants a one-year make-good contract.
I agree on Gordon, a good fit but bad splits so hes probably more of a role player. I would also take a chance on Victor or Youk again, especially after losing AGon, Salty's OBP and Papi's situation.
