Anyone got a trade idea, that is actually a do-able trade for both teams involving the sox.

Mine would be to send adkins, big ben, and burke, to cleveland for v. martinez and minor league pitcher, what an upgradeto have the platoon at catcher to be martinez and aj

I know it will never happen but its fun to think up these types of senerios, anyone else got any ideas?

I knew this thread was bad news the second I saw the title. Hmm, why not figure out how to trade our trash for a very good young player? Why can't KW do that?

Isn't this fun!:gulp:

This will be the most realistic trade scenario anyone on these boards ever comes up with.

Konerko for George Brett's old knee-high stirrups. Use the money saved to give everyone a wicked free iPod on opening day. Ozzie can wear the stirrups if he wants.

since i started posting i never saw one with a trade idea, the idea i had by this thread was not to have people evaluate mine, but to have people share theirs, mine was jsut an example of using the sox and another team, as u probably skipped i also said i knew the tarde wouldnt happen, it was just an example

But you asked for do-able trades. If you were just giving the example of the Sox and a hypothetical team switching players to let us know what this mysterious trading concept is...well, I think we all know what a "trade" encompasses.

Crede and Munoz to Tampa for Aubrey Huff. Tampa is trying to Unload his monsterous 3 million dollar salary. He hit .297 29 hr 102 rbi. Year before he was even Better.

I'm late with this one but here goes...


[hangar script]

Trade Darrin Jackson to Milwaukee for
BOB UECKER. This man is the GREATEST
sportscaster in history, even greater than
the man who was driven from us if you believe the
CUBPOGANDA OF THE CUBUNE AND CUB-TIMES
AND CUB-ESPN down with the HORRIBLE
FUNDAMENTALS etc etc...

You posted a crazy trade idea which you said was doable, then got mad when people told you it isn't doable. Relax or come up with better ideas.

Only the suggestion of the trade should be in teal. Uecker as we all know is indeed the greatest of all time.

Okay, Konerko1413 needs to calm down a little. It's a nice idea for a thread, these other people just can't be creative enough to come up with a workable trade.

I think it would be safe to say we would have to wait and see what happens with the offer we made to AJ Pierzynski and the possible offer to Tadahito Iguchi prior to making any rash trades.

Although if those signings do come true (fingers-crossed) then we obviously would have to open 2 spots on the 40-man roster. So what about this trade:

Trade Jon Adkins and Kevin Walker or Casey Rogowoski to Kansas City for Tony Graffanino. We open up on spot on the 40-man roster, plus add a very serviceable IF backup who has the abilitiy to play 2B, SS, and 3B.

We still need room for one more roster spot, SO we sell Joe Borchard to a Japanese Team where Borchard will most likely finely be able to hit a baseball. This would show good faith to Japanese teams enabling us bidding rights on any future Japanese stars coming to the US.

Anyways, I don't know who we would trade to the Phillies, but I would love to see the Sox nab Placido Polanco because he accepted arbitration and now the Phillies have a log jam of infiedlers.

Sorry these guys are ripping your ill-advised thread.
They ain't got no love.
I would like my guy, Shawn Marion from the Suns...
How about Eddy Curry and Podsednik's girlfriend to the Sun's/D-Backs for Hillebrand, Marion and our draft pick back.
That chick is worth more than any PTBNL you'll ever find!!

Sometimes stuff does not work out. I wouldn't mind him back though. Another guy I have been a fan of from that Royals team is Desi Relaford. The guy played everywhere from 2B, SS, 3B, and CF. He isn't great, but I do like him. Too bad we couldn't have gotten him when he was a FA.
