With the pending deal that is sending Minnesota DH Nelson Cruz to the Rays for their #10 and #17 prospect, I figured it was time to play “Armchair GM” for a second time.

It’s time to play Armchair GM and make another trade.

First we have to find a team and their needs. Then see if we can come up with a trade. Last time we attempted something with the Cubs, but they are now in sell mode after moving OF Joc Pederson. This time lets go to San Francisco Giants. The Giants could use a closer, and middle of the lineup bat and a starting pitcher. The Rangers have all three and they are being shopped around.

Let’s do them individually first and then plan a blockbuster for all three.

First Proposed Trade

Rangers send Giants RHP Ian Kennedy

Giants send Rangers RHP Caleb Killian

Second Proposed Trade 

Rangers send Giants RHP Kyle Gibson

Giants send Rangers RHP Logan Webb and RHP Norwith Gudino

Third Proposed Trade 

Rangers send Giants OF Joey Gallo

Giants send Rangers OF Helios Ramos, LHP Kyle Harrison and OF Jairo Pomares


Rangers send Giants OF Joey Gallo, RHP Kyle Gibson and RHP Ian Kennedy

Giants Send Rangers RHP Logan Webb, OF Helios Ramos, OF Luis Matos, and  LHP Kyle Harrison

There are three players the Giants could use that the Rangers have. Each one could be a separate deal or………. maybe a blockbuster. Go ahead, mock away.
