Trade Wellington Castillo to the Rockies for Nolan Arenado
Colorado has a better, younger catcher than Welington Castillo that just hit ~30 homers in the big leagues. And even if they didn't, Arenado would cost something significant. Not Welington Castillo. More like Garza.
I too don't find that trade very appealing for Cleveland.
Don't really see the Blue Jays trade either, but maybe if the Cubs took back Buehrle or included a trade partner that took him on. I would love to get D'Arnaud and Syndergaard, but I'm not sure anyone wants to trade for Garza in his mysterious state.
Not getting Arenado for Castillo either, though I would love that. I really would like to try and steal Arenado.
I'm trying to remember, but did we make an actual move(other than taking Castillo in the Rule 5) last year during the meetings? I think the Stewart deal happened a day or two later and was obviously started there, but did we finish anything over the actual meetings time frame?
