With Urias coming I think you have to.

For example:

Keston Hiura

for

Brendan McKay

Who says no? McKay, a promising starter would be best suited in the NL where his bat would also show when he started. Hiura, a terrible defender needs to DH.

I'd be open to hearing what others think a potential offer would be. I know people already started to fall-in-love with Hiura but you have to acknowledge his realities.

Think about it. It makes at least some sense as McKay if his bat would show up also plays 1B.

The offense is already hurting badly w/o Moose, Grandal, no 1B, and you want a much weaker hitting 2B. McKay may pan out to be a decent starter or may be a long man type. But with the severe lack of offense the Crew would be looking at 5th in the division. No thanks.

I appreciate it....all I'm saying is I don't know how else you get to a frontline starter in this market and that it's close.

Frankly I can't think of a better one-for-one swap but I'd love to hear hypotheticals.

Massive pass.

They can’t just trade Hiura away like that. Him being an elite bat is essential to our success. Gotta risk whether he can play the field or not.

I just don't know how else anyone plans on obtaining a #1 or #2 we need to make a serious push without planning on the late-season winning-streaks and pitching snafus we saw last season. I'd say try to get Urias - but the Dodgers would say no.

It's the only fit I can think of.

Edit: Julio Urias, obviously.

Lindor, McKay, Glasnow, and Snell are all guys I’d move him for.

Robert Murray reporting that the Brewers have "taken calls" on Hiura, but that it would take a "sh*t ton"

Both. Snell and Glasnow and I can approve. Legit Hiura may become a .400 hitter approaching 40HRs yearly. And you control that for 6yrs before talking extension. He's going to be among top 10 hitters in baseball.

Very interesting this comes out now that Stearns has traded for a guy who's best position is 2B.

The Rays would never entertain that. And if Hiura ever hits .400 in a full MLB season I will sell my house and use all proceeds to purchase Keston Hiura jerseys.

It appears Keston Hiura has a burner account on the forum.

While extremely unrealistic, I mean this is a "s-ton". If for some reason the Rays were to offer Snell/Glasnow and McKay, then that would be something you have to entertain. Even then, it feels light-ish for a guy who legitimately could contend for a batting title yearly for the next decade.

I know that Glasnow has arm issues and Snell has been up-and-down, but Glasnow or Snell AND McKay? Why would the Rays do that?

The Rays are also loaded with infield prospects and at worst can platoon Lowe/Brousseau, which is pretty good. Probably almost as good as having Hiura when you factor in defense.

Not saying the Rays would even think about this deal. Only saying that is the "s-ton" I think it would take for Hiura to be moved.

Snell and Glasnow =8yrs expensive control. Hiura has 6yrs with 2 of them to be expensive. Though doesnt Tampa have a set 2b of their own? Both Snell and recently Glasnow had Ace like seasons, but surrounded by #3 or worse other seasons. There's 0 doubt Hiura being a .300+ batter over the next 6 years.

In other words Hiura is sell low and Snell/Glasnow are sell high.

I really don’t see Stearns giving up 6 years with 3 at minimum of a guy who could contend as the top second baseman in the game. I would think Urias is here to play SS to replace the black hole we had there and not to replace the (upcoming) all-star second baseman.

I don’t think it’s even realistic to think of what it would take to get him. Moving him for guys already making millions wouldn’t make sense. It would have to be a team with like 3 big time MLB contributors willing to move them that all have a ton of cheap control. Which would totally hamper their own chance to win. Hiura is one of those guys that’s pretty much impossible to move because of just how much talent another team would need to give up. Hader is a much more realistic player to move in my opinion.

Snell was the 2018 CY Young award winner and is under contract thru 2023 - Would trade Keston straight up for him.
