#4. Indians acquire David Price in three team trade
This is unlikely to happen, especially this close to the start of spring training. The Rays wanted to trade David Price since he is due for a monster pay increase, but with the market slowed by the Masahiro Tanaka saga and the incredibly high price to acquire Price’s services, a trade seems unlikely at this point. However, if the Indians made the bold decision to part with several top prospects and even some major league level talent in order to acquire David Price, that would certainly cause a reaction. It’s hard to know whether the move would be seen as a positive or negative. In all likelihood it would probably be a 50/50 split. Those living in the here and now would love it. Those who understand Price’s quickly approaching free agency would hate it. But again, it would certainly cause a reaction.
