    Adam LaRoche: He won’t be a free agent this season, but he could be a good player to trade for. He’s had a solid season, beating .271 and hitting 33 HR’s. He could be a good addition at a relatively low price.   Hiroki Kuroda: He’s a veteran, a class act, and would serve as a good and consistent second or third arm in the rotation. Clearly he’s getting up there in age, but he’s shown an ability to still perform and getting two more years out of him isn’t unreasonable.   Alex Rodriguez: It couldn’t be, could it? It seems as if the Red Sox might be interested in acquiring A-Rod, who spurned them in free agency in 2004, from the Yankees. A-Rod has become a cancer to the Yankee clubhouse and they could be willing to eat the majority of his contract. For the record, I’m hoping against it, but he could be plugged in at SS and do fine.   Mike Napoli: He could be a slightly higher profile signing. No one we’ve rotated through the catcher position has stuck this season, so although he struggled after the first half, he could be the answer. His contact might be in the 2 year/$16 million area.   Elvis Andrus: Apparently the Rangers are willing to trade him if they re-sign Josh Hamilton, and he could be the long-term answer at shortstop. He’s young, improving every year, and would be an interesting player to develop. Jacoby Ellsbury is apparently going to be used as trade bait and this could be a good swap.   Ike Davis: The Mets have already considered trading him after he rebounded in the second half. The Red Sox don’t have a long-term answer at first base unless James Loney does a 180. Jon Lester is another player the Sox seem to be willing to part with, and as the Mets have a thin rotation this would be another trade to watch for.
