This would allow the Cubs to trade Samardajza to Royals for Zimmer and Miguel Almonte.
Sign Tanaka and Salty.
Trade for CarGo send Arrieta, Castillo, and Voelbach to Rockies.

Royals deal seems about right, but probably expanded a bit.
I would have to think the Rockies would require more. Not that those guys are terrible by any means.
Super trade seems unlikely. While Bradley and Polanco are both good prospects, I'd rather keep our 4 guys there. Oliver, while having good stuff, literally walks a guy an inning. But teams almost never swap prospects.

The idea for that trade was to help get a big LH bat since all of the Cubs current prospects are RH bats. If I had to put in order which of the big 4 I'd trade to get to a LH bat it would be Soler, Baez, Almora, and then Bryant. Soler is listed first due to position and lack of playing time. I think Soler has crazy potential to and could still end up better than Baez because he seems to have the better plate discipline of the two. Baez is next because his K% still troubles me some, but his bat in a middle infield position is special. I hope the cubs keep Almora because I think a gold glove CF with his hitting ability he could end up being a well above average compared to most CF. Bryant simply smashes and if he stays at 3rd your looking at a guy who could be a top hitting 3rd basemen for several years. 3rd has been kind of desolate for power lately.
