The Mookie + Price and Ca$h deal seems to be stalled.. The structure of the deal originally reported that the Dodgers traded Maeda to the Twins for Graterol. Graterol was then flipped to the Red Sox along with Verdugo to complete the deal. Turns out, the LAD / Red Sox deal had the Red Sox doing the flipping of Maeda to the Twins.. not the LAD's. The Red Sox can now deal Maeda to the Twins for Graterol plus a top 10 from the Twins farm system while keeping Graterol in the deal or the Twins will give up a prospect from 11-20 along with Graterol for Maeda.

So, Boston holds the reigns on what's going to happen.. They can accept the original deal (unlikely) or the Twins can add a prospect:

Boston's 1st choice for the additional prospect = Jhoan Duran

Twins' choise for the additional prospect = Jorge Alcala

or the Red Sox will trade Maeda to a team like the Atlanta Braves:

Boston gets Kyle Muller and William Contreras

Atlanta gets Kenta Maeda

Making the Dodgers/Red Sox deal complete..

Thoughts?.

Arenado is not only already at market pricing $ 60 MM for 2 years, but also has an opt out after those two years. The package being offered should go to a guy like Betts or Lindor. They're at least top five players in MLB. Lindor would be about $ 15 MM less over the two years as well. If Cleveland would take that package, then the Braves should offer it and see if Cleveland bites. Who knows. maybe the Indians would want some different guys like a catcher instead of one of the pitchers? .

. sending out the trash for gems isn't going to work for any team attempting to make a deal with the NYY's.

Massive risk / return with both Greene and Hinds. Cleveland is more risk averse than this deal appears.

Straight salary dump ( $ 167 MM for both guys, combined) this is not. both of these guys can still play. The return to the Cubs is substantial.

Lindor is clearly a target that would improve the Yankees. The deal as presented, won't be adequate as the Indians would want someone who could step in and contribute, immediately. Deivi Garcia is smaller than Danny Salazar, who didn't work. Hard Pass. Clint Frazier is more of a throw in at this point. Estevan Florial has proven he can't hit and the Indians already have a guy, Daniel Johnson who they like better. Thairo Estrada is a "nothing special" middle infielder/ utility infielder that the Indians have an ample supply of.

This is not what it would take to acquire one of the top ten players in the world. That would require starting with Andujar, keeping Jasson Dominguez (excellent prospect) adding another prospect like Kevin Alcantara and adding an arm, at least one of Jonathan Loaisiga, Luis Medina, Michael King and or Domingo Acevedo, possibly two if Loaisiga is NOT chosen.

Yankee fans may look at this kind of deal and gasp. but, that's what it would take.
