I would like to reiterate, I don't pretend to know what exactly every other team out there is thinking or would want in return for any trade. These proposed trades are merely a shot-in-the-dark attempt at realistic trades the Guardians could swing while not wiping out their entire farm system. There is no realistic way the team could swing three of the aforementioned trades. Two, maybe. One, I most certainly hope so.

The club should be players in both the free-agent market and on the trade front. And I would argue that a Josh Bell, Trey Mancini, Mitch Haniger, Corey Kluber, or Taijuan Walker type could be a more likely addition as any of those guys could fit the club's needs for the next 2-3 seasons.

But supplementing the roster via both the free-agent market and trade route seems like the most obvious scenario for this offseason.
