TT would be an amazing add for any team. I hope Hahn is at least kicking tires on this...

I will personally let Trea Turner rent my basement for free and cook him breakfast lunch and dinner if he gets traded to White Sox....let s go Hahn trade Nick Madrigal, Thompson, Adolfo and PTBNL.

We rated him highly in his draft year leading up to it - I remember that. If I recall, we were considering him if Rodon had gone to Miami.

you're giving up at least Kopech or Vaughn for TT

  The Nats waited too long to get equivalent value in any trade for Trea.  Sox would pick up the balance of his '21 salary ($6.5 Mil.)  plus a bucket of balls. OK, they can have ReyLo back....and Adam Eaton if they can find him.

Somewhere between the last two posts lies some probable truth.

Our old friend NSC posed a "hypothetical" question asking Sox fans if they would be okay with Burger, Crochet, ++ for Trea Turner.  The overwhelming majority of responders said yes.  I would agree.

Guys in the same vein as our beloved fake insiders I would like all credit for first speaking this into existence. As proof that I’m legit I once saw Jim callis in the airport and did not bother him out of respect.

TA
Turner
Abreu
Eloy
Moncada
Vaughn
Robert
Grandal
Engel/Goodwin

Dear god...

I honestly can't figure out where everyone would hit.  Regardless, you'd have very good hitters at 7 and 8.

Turner is a luxury we unfortunately can’t afford.  Escobar still remains the most likely 2B addition and the rest of our chips should be used on the pen.

I’m assuming Rizzo would want a TT replacement. My guess is that Madrigal would have to be in the package. That would hurt long term, but they can always pull off a Lance Lynn situation and lock him up before he hits the open market. I’m very intrigued by this...

I disagree. Turner is the level of talent that papers over weaknesses. He is on an mvp level this year, and all we would need for next year and a half is set up men.

What is your trade proposal for Turner?  I don’t see how we get him without disrupting the major league roster.

I believe TT in the past has said he wants to play SS. He would be awesome if he would sign an extension to be the 2b but without that I don't think there is much of a fit

Madrigal, Burger, plus another piece. Maybe Adolfo or Dalquist

Either Burger. Crochet, and a couple prospects or Madrigal. Crochet, and a couple prospects.  I'm not sure what Washington's needs are, but someone mentioned they'd probably want a replacement for Turner, and Madrigal would fit that.

Unfortunately, I'm not sure either package gets it done.

Madrigal, Crochet ++ definitely gets it done. The Sox would never do that tho. Nor should they.

Turner is controlled through next year. I have a feeling we don’t want to pay what it would cost. 
Just get Escobar and let him leave in free agency after the season.

It would likely cost Crochet + Madrigal + smaller pieces.

That's a heavy bullet, but I would strongly consider if it Turner would play 2b.

If it takes Crochet + minor leaguers, then you do it 100% of the time.

I have 0 faith in Crochet. He's the #1 person I'd be looking to trade right now. For a Gallo or Turner type.

Oh man. This is the one. This is the one I'd back up the truck for. 

Jared Kelley, Burger, Sheets, Adolfo, ++? I have no idea the ask, but I'm pretty sure I'd do it. 

Turner could play 2b obviously, but even OF if you ever need/want an extremely talented OF in Turner, Robert, Engel combo late in a game or something. 

 

He's an incredible talent, and one, although costly, would really, really consider extending too. he'd demand a huge contract, but something like 5 years and 150. 

Just dreaming don't mind me or my takes on trade value or FA cost.
