KC Trades

Kansas City has said they are looking for some SP in the off season. Good news for us, since we have a surplus of SP to deal. They list a few players that they're not willing to give up, but most of them are fair game.

We have a lot of depth in our starting pitching staff and I would be fine to get rid of some good to great players for some good to great hitting, because I know there are plenty of other good to great SP on our team to take their spots in our rotation. 

Here are KC's players I am interested in:

Melky Cabrera - OF

Alex Gordon - OF

Billy Butler - 1B/DH

Jeff Francoeur - OF

All of those players are in our price range. Some may be FA or going through arb this year, but let's just assume KC re-signs them. 

Personally, I think the spots we need most are 1B and 3B, so Butler would be my main target and he would definitely be an improvement.  As for the other players, I would love to have them to help make our outfield even better. Especially when Dejesus is gone and if we don't end up resigning Crisp and/or Willingham. 

What type of realistic trade combos would you present to KC if you were Beane?
