Doubt they trade him in division & not really sure what we would give up to acquire him, especially considering the Reds will likely try to deal him for someone who can contribute in 2020.


The no divisional trade thing is a myth made up by fans. Teams seek good returns in trades, regardless of the trade partner

It isn’t a myth, but it is quite overblown. Teams almost always prefer not to trade within the division. Doesn’t mean they won’t, but it can complicate things...especially in a case where both teams want to win now.

Sure, teams trade in division all the time, but generally not guys like Senzel who got picked second overall, was a consensus top 10 prospect two years in a row & still has 6 years of team control remaining.

The last guy close to his prospect pedigree I can think of getting traded in division was Sixto Sanchez for Realmuto, but even then Sanchez was consistently ranked in n the 13-25 range, so a notch lower than Senzel, he carried a much riskier profile as a 19 year old pitching prospect in A+ ball versus a 24 year old MLB ready position prospect & the Marlins aren't trying to contend in the immediate term.

What prospects of Senzel's caliber are you thinking of that were traded in division between two teams that were both hoping to contend in the immediate term?
