Trade 3

The previous two trade proposals involved one incredible prospect to offer and then some mid-level prospects to go with him. This one is a little bit different. There is not a truly high-end prospect here but they are all above average plus one MLB ready player. Leury Garcia is the one MLB ready player full time. He will be in the White Sox lineup a bunch this season if he isn’t ever traded. He would help the Cubs in the sense that he can play every position.

You already know about Zack Collins and Micker Adolfo. Collins likely doesn’t have a long term future with the White Sox unless they move on from McCann after this season and Adolfo might be a guy who is on the block for MLB level talent over the next season or two. These are guys who can be great players but depth in the organization might make them expendable.

Luis Alexander Basabe is the other member of this trade proposal. He is a prospect that the White Sox sees playing for them someday but you never truly know with one like him. He would be worth moving, however, if they see an opportunity to add a star like Bryant.

Obviously, a trade like this is almost guaranteed not to happen. It would be fun, however, to see the White Sox add another superstar from the Cubs organization. People don’t like to admit it but these two teams are rivals despite not even playing in the same league. In times like these with no baseball, it is fun to talk hypotheticals nonetheless.
