And Goldie is a significantly more valuable player than Abreu. Your expectations are insane. 

And my suggestion is to receive basically half of what was being offered back for Goldie. Insane is the expectation that he is worthless. If he were teams wouldn't keep calling about him

I’ve made it clear in this thread that I don’t think he is worthless. He’s paid appropriately. He has minimal trade value. We aren’t getting anything exciting for Jose Abreu.

This. Jose is more valuable to the Sox. Unfortunately, he just doesn't have much trade value given his age, contract, and position

Looks like Verdugo is the centerpiece of the talks with LAD about Kluber...surely, the Dodgers would prefer to trade both Pederson and Puig OR Kemp rather than their best prospect, but a young/cost-controlled player makes a lot more sense for the Indians.

Something like Puig and Verdugo would open up RF for the Dodgers (to potentially sign Harper) and simultaneously fix two holes in the Indians' OF for 2019.

They have Pederson-Bellinger-Puig there really is no spot for him in the OF. Plus they have to get Kemp at bats and Enrique. LAD stadium is sort of the perfect place for him to pitch as Kluber gets older.

I get it. I wouldn't be surprised if they move Puig as well in the deal. He'll be expensive probably 12-13 million in arb.
