  1. Thought I'd posit a few names I'd like to see us pursue in trade. These are less obvious than some and assume no major FA acquisitions such as Comforto. 1) Daulton Varsho, D-Backs - very unconventional defensive profile fills several holes for us. In 2021 he started 37 games as catcher and 36 games in OF (CF in 19). LH hitter with power and 5 years of control. D-Backs unlikely to move him unless they are overwhelmed but am guessing they'd love to get out from MadBums remaining 3/yr $55M. 2) Joey Gallo, Yankees - disappointed after coming over from Rangers. Can play either corner at GG level and, while strikeout prone, has LH power few, if any, can match. Under contract at @$10.5M in '22 would probably benefit from change of scenery. If he clicks, can extend him and if not, he buys us another year of development for the youngsters. 3) Ian Happ, Cubs - has been erratic at the plate but turned things around nicely after horrible start in '21. Hit 25 bombs (would have been 2nd highest on Sox). Career 800+ OPS as a switch-hitter. Capable of playing multiple positions including 2B/3B and all 3 OF positions. Similar profile to L. Garcia but with more power and a bit better range. Of course 'it takes two to tango' and Sox are thin on trade capital. My sense is short of taking on the salaries trade partners might be seeking to move, names that might be required to turn deals for the above include, Jimenez, Vaughn (Varsho would be the only name above I would consider moving Vaughn for), Crochet, Bummer, etc. And...just to add some controversy, it might be fun to contemplate what a potential return package might look like if we dangled Giolito (plus ?) to the D-Backs for let's say Varsho, K. Marte and Zac Gallen?. Oh well...such is life with no baseball to look forward to and time on my hands.
