    Big Bill would be a 40/120 guy in Baltimore’s band box and Bundy might be possible in a multi-player trade, throw in Monty and get Bundy and some lower minors’ arms, though I think Gordon has more trade value. Do agree that Seattle is the better fit for either Butler or Gordon. Also, the Reds are desperate for a lead-off LF and Alex’ OBP makes him possible. Reds have a bunch of young arms in the minors and were my original target for trading Gordon. The goal being to dump payroll and restock AA and AAA.

      I think you are right about Gordon being a fit for the Reds. But Bundy isn’t being traded even in a multi player trade.

      I think Butler’s a great fit for Seattle, but I’m not sold Seattle’s a great fit for KC right now. I like their young pitchers. I’m not sold on them though. Feels like more moving the target since they don’t have any major league experience. Been trying to see a Seattle/KC fit for a few weeks now and it’s not clicking for me.
