Im all for keeping Shark as long as he's willing to sign an extension this off-season.

But what if he doesn't want to sign a long term extension?

#1. The Cardinals believe they do not need starting pitching and have already addressed their SS needs.

#2. If there was going to be any trade with the Pirates, it would have been at the deadline.

#3. Diamondbacks aren't going to swap their 3B superstar prospect for our struggling 3B.

#4. Indians like Chisenhall and Salazar, Bauer is more cost controlled than Shark, so this isn't happening.

 

#5. Most plausible out of all of these scenarios, because Sanchez is a couple years away from the bigs, Nolin is closer to the show, Jimenez is a solid return since we need catching depth, and Gose is the Blue Jays' Brett Jackson, but with less power and is a few years younger. I don't see them giving up both Sanchez and Nolin in a package for Shark, but the Blue Jays have done crazier things.

#1: Westbrook is 36, Wainwright is 32, they need a young veteran starter. Barney would be a good defensive utility player for them. And James Russell will be their James Russell.

 

#2: Cubs weren't going to trade Shark for less than what they completely wanted until they know if Shark would sign an extension, plus they had a high price for every piece they could possibly hold on to for next year.

 

#3: They aren't swapping 3rd basemen straight up, say they don't want to give Skaggs and Bradley, so we take their next best prospect in Davidson but then they have a whole at 3B for the future and might as well take Olt and he would just make a log jam with the Cubs.

 

#4: I bet they would like Shark even more. Bauer is more cost controlled but he's been ad at triple A. I bet if Derek Johnson got his hands on him he can be an ace.

 

#5: If the Blue Jays don't make some noise next year the GM will be fired and he might as well go for it all.

Gose is WAY better than Jackson. Significantly better speed and defense, strikes out 10% less of the time, and has actually had some success in the bigs, and is younger.
