Is A Three-Way Blockbuster Trade Coming?
1.) the Red Sox send Yoenis Cespedes and Mike Napoli to the Mariners. This gets Seattle two right-handed power bats. The Red Sox could back-fill first base with either Daniel Nava or Allen Craig (or a combination of both);
2.) the Mariners send Brad Miller (SS) and Danny Hultzen (P) to Washington. The Nationals get a young middle infielder with a huge upside and an arm—albeit recently injured—that they coveted in the 2011 draft;
3.) the Nationals send Jordan Zimmerman and Tyler Clippard to Boston. This give the Red Sox a #1 starter and Koji Uehara insurance in the bullpen.
