Trade advice of the day
ESPN/Sirius XM's Jim Bowden — he of the creative mind, as Joe Maddon says — suggests this blockbuster deal: RHP James Shields, right, and CF B.J. Upton to Texas for OF Craig Gentry and prospects RHP Cody Buckel, SS Leury Garcia and RHP Luke Jackson.
Trade advice of the day, part II
The Chicago Tribune's Phil Rogers put a lot of thought into this suggested deal: OF/DH Alfonso Soriano, right, 1B Bryan LaHair, C Geovany Soto and $22 million to the Rays for DH Luke Scott or 1B Carlos Peña, RHP Chris Archer, INF Tim Beckham and another two or three prospects.
Number of the day
