Reds and Yankees:

Reds get: Estevan Florial, Miguel Andujar, Domingo German and Ronald Torreyes

yankees get: Scooter Gennett, Eugenio Suarez and Homer Bailey

Convincing the Reds to part with Suarez and Gennett would be the hard part. They're good players who are controlled through 2020 and 2019. however if the reds get a chance to vastly improve their own farm system they might bite, plus moving Bailey would mean getting out from under the $49 million he's still owed.For the Yankees, the primary benefit would be substantial upgrades to a lineup that was already good enough to finish second in runs and first in defensive efficiency in 2017. Their rotation would also get just what it needs behind Luis Severino, Masahiro Tanaka and Sonny Gray: an arm good enough to use, but not good enough to call off their pursuit of Japanese wunderkind Shohei Otani.

There's no way the Yankees do this. Those three reds players packaged together have very little, if any, trade value.

Suarez has value, but not with Bailey’s contract. And I doubt the Yankees would do this.

I agree, Suarez has value, but Bailey has negative value and gennett is close to zero, so this package isn't worth much.

The Yankees would want nothing to do with this. Castro is as good if not better than Gennett. He was an AllStar this year and was having a great season before he got hurt. Suarez is a nice player but they have Torres on the way to take over for Headley at 3B and Suarez would just be blocking him. Nobody wants Homer Bailey and his contract. The Yankees currently have Severino, Tanaka, Gray, Montgomery, and Chance Adams is MLB ready with Justus Sheffield right behind him. They are the favorites for Ohtani and if they really want Insurance they can just resign C. C. on a one year deal. Awful deal from their perspective.

Over the past two seasons, Gennett has been better than Castro in nearly every offensive category. He's also significantly cheaper than Castro. I would take Gennett over Castro any day of the week.

That's not the issue with this deal. The issue is Homer Bailey. Otherwise, it's actually fair.
