Cubs get Stanton, Jacob Turner, low level minors pitching prospects.

Marlins get Javier Baez, Tony Campana, Albert Almora, Barrett Loux, Dillon Maples, Mike Olt, and Martin Perez.

Rangers get: Matt Garza, Carlos Marmol, Alfonso Soriano, Nate Evoladi cash.

They make this trade and would still have parts for more trades.

Say cubs trade: Jeff Samardzija, Matt Sczur, Josh Vitters, Travis Wood, David Dejesus, and Darwin Barney
D-Backs trade: Upton, Wade Miley, and Gerardo Parra.

Then Cubs trade: Jorge Soler, Christian Villenueva, Brett Jackson, Pierce Johnson, and Dan Vogelbach
Mariners trade: Felix, and Kyle Seager.

In these trades cubs are getting All-star help in every position of need in reasonable or semi reasonable trades.

Then next year they have money for guys like lincecum, Johnson, or even Garza again.

I want Olt though. I am wary of Turner. But nice idea overall though.

Why do you people get in a fuss over fans who propose trades?

1.) It's just for fun.
2.) It's difficult to do.
3.) If you are going to be brash enough to condescend, be brash enough to propose your own trade.

Even though I like that trade idea with the Marlins that would never happen, the Rangers want Stanton more then the Cubs. I hate the other 2 trades though, but Interesting ideas!

Rangers get: Alfonso Soriano, Ben Wells

Just some ideas to make the Cubs competitive with young players I think the Stanton works the best.

I don't really expect it to happen just trying to make the best deal possible.

Cubs give up Garza, Marmol, Baez, Almora, Soriano, Loux, and Maples? I say no way. That's another gutting of the minors.

I wouldn't mind the effort, but they'd either have to get more in return, or a better pitcher than Turner for me to even start to consider liking it from a Cubs perspective.

Since I've been commanded to come up with my own deal, or risk the scorn and ridicule of the internet ethics committee, here's my proposal for Stanton, and I don't need to include a third team or the trading of a bunch of top level prospects in the same deal.
Cubs get Stanton and Zack Cox from Miami
Marlins get Jeff Samardzija, Junior Lake, Josh Vitters, Trey McNutt, Matt Szczur, and David DeJesus

The Cubs would probably need to include either another arm, or a near-major-league-ready position player. The Marlins need a young starter under team control, Lake and Vitters would probably compete for spots on the big league roster out of spring training, McNutt could possibly help their bullpen this year, and the Marlins front office was high on Szczur when he quit football. DeJesus is in the trade because they need a starting outfielder and a top of the order bat, and I don't think they would be willing to absorb any of Soriano's salary. The Cubs get a stud corner outfielder and a possible option at third either late this year or next, so this trade helps both teams this year and in the future without draining the Cubs farm system.

In order to obtain Mike Stanton, the conversation needs to begin with Javier Baez.

You're right. That is short.

Rangers get: Alfonso Soriano, Jeff Samardzija, Matt Szczur, Dillon Maples
Cubs get: Mike Olt, Derek Holland

The Cubs would eat $26M of the $36M remaining on Soriano's contract. Making Soriano a 2 year/10M investment, for Texas.

The Cubs would assume the entirety of Holland's 4 year/27.5M contract.

The Cubs sign Matt Garza to an extension.

Good thought but Overpaying I think. Samardzija is to talented and more valuable then other teams think trade Garza instead but they would have to extend him first.

It may deplete the system a little bit but could you imagine a lineup with Soler, Stanton, Castro, Rizzo, Vogelbach, Brett Jackson, and Castillo.
