Some trades:

Brewers get Machado, Britton
Orioles get: Corbin Burnes, Brett Phillips, Marcos Diplan

Note: Orioles want young pitching. Brewers have solid young pitching and add in an OF who has no exact role going forward.

Dodgers get: Asdrubal Cabrera
Mets get: Caleb Ferguson

Note: Dodgers get smart and don't overpay for a flashy SS. Cabrera fills in nicely and his versatility plays well for them. Mets get a young pitcher who needs some work.

Red Sox get: Raisel Iglesias
Reds get: Tanner Houck, Darwinzon Hernandez, C. J. Chatham

Note: Red Sox, who've been looking for a significant bullpen upgrade, find one in Iglesias. They pay a hefty price, but manage to keep top prospects who lost playing time for various reasons.

Indians get: Brad Hand
Padres get: Triston McKenzie, Aaron Civale, Luis Oviedo

Note: Padres get a handful of pitching prospects for the best RP available.

Phillies get: Nathan Eovaldi
Rays get: McKenzie Mills, Dylan Cozens

Note: Eovaldi has been brilliant, but health is still a serious concern. Phillies find a bargain and give up a moderate return.

Yankees get: Cole Hamels, Cash
Rangers get: Chance Adams, Billy McKinney

Note: Yankees take on Hamels' salary and in return, gets off light in terms of prospect haul.

Giants get: Corey Dickerson
Pirates get: Sam Dyson, Tyler Beede, Shaun Anderson

Giants get some help at OF for a season and a half, and basically wash the salary with moving Dyson to Pittsburgh. The Pirates get MLB-ready pitching and some projects for Searage to work his magic with.

I eagerly await to see how you all disagree with these.

Pittsburgh doesn't do that.

Im not sure what the cost on Dickerson would be. Maybe it’s more than the Giants would want to pay. I more or less think he’d be a good guy for the Giants. And they have a lot of young pitchers that the Pirates could work with.
