Mets, Red Sox, and Royals Getting Together on a Three-Team Trade Involving Andrew Benintendi (UPDATE)

Chicago Cubs

Hey, here’s a little something for your Wednesday evening, as a treat.

A three-team trade to enjoy from a distance, as it does not involve the Cubs:

The Red Sox have had Benintendi on the block all winter after his terrible 2020 season, and perhaps dealing him will open the door for them to re-sign Jackie Bradley, Jr. For the Royals, it’s probably a buy-low addition to see what hay they can make in the AL Central this year after a couple other modest additions early in the offseason. God bless ’em, they’re trying.

As for the Mets, you could maybe figure they are sliding in there to acquire an arm from the Royals maybe?

UPDATE: Actually, the Mets are just sliding in to get themselves a quality outfield prospect (and I wonder if they are smartly using money to do it):

The Red Sox would be replacing two years of Benintendi with three years of (a less-established) Cordero.

UPDATE 2: A little more for the Red Sox:
