The trade deadline is fast approaching and thus far there has been very little activity on the trade market. That isn't due to a lack of options though as there are a number of quality players who seem quite likely to get moved between now and July 31st. The question isn't so much if those players will get dealt but when and where. Alas, the trade market is an imperfect market. Players don't always end up in the destination to which they are ideally suited. To that end, we have matched ten players, based on our list of the ten players most likely to get traded this month, with what would be their ideal trade landing spot: Matt Garza, Cubs Ideal landing spot = Indians: If the Indians have any hopes of overtaking the Tigers in the AL Central, they are going to need an impact arm.

  • The Yanks need pitching and punch. Matt Garza would be a good trade along with moving Chamberlain and Hughes to save a few bucks. Theo would probably be content with 3 farmhands and some money to make the deal.
