Dave Cameron: Probably the Mariners, just because they already don’t have enough pitching and have okay options at 2B/OF. But Cubs might not want to turn Happ into a guy who can’t stay healthy either. Not sure it’s unfair, just maybe not what either team is wanting to do.
He also seems to think Russell is the most likely gone by some of his comments. God I hope he’s wrong and just being his usually dumb self.
I will say that if they're going to trade Russell, it's going to be going big, like the Archer possibility he mentioned. I don't see Russell getting traded for the next version of Drew Pomeranz or w/e. With that in mind I can see that being an outcome, but I don't think Cameron's confidence/insistence is a good barometer of how likely it is.
