What would that realistically take?

Schwarber/Happ/Amaya/Marquez?

I think something like Willy, Happ, Abbot/Swarmer type, and like Zack Short would be close to enough.

Way way too much. Machado got nowhere near that kind of package.

Machado was traded at the deadline and Mookie is fat and away better. I think to get him in the offseason it takes around that.

if he’s so fat at this young of an age I’d rather not give him a big contract

Fat players are the new market inefficiency. You heard it here first.

The deadline tends to be inflationary in terms of trade value, and the only player above AA traded for Machado was roster fill Valera. Trading Contreras for Mookie is a complete non-starter, Schwarber basically the same, and Happ almost certainly a bad idea.

How close would he be to a straight up trade for KB?

Alright great, then send them like Ademan and some prospects we don’t care about then.

The Red Sox want to compete next year despite cutting salary. They're not doing a rebuild like Baltimore and are going to be more interested in MLB/high minors pieces than maybe higher upside but farther away prospects.

Contreras/Schwarber as a main piece for Betts is a good starting point.

A. Who knows what value Contreras really has. Yes he's put up good numbers, but he's also been inconsistent
B. The Red Sox have a catcher who put up good value, albeit defensively.
C. Schwarber may be a better match because of that, but if you feel like his recent success is a break out, and not a fluke, I wouldn't want to move him for a guy who's only under contract for 1 year.

Nah, I think it's more likely they sign Betts as a FA than trade for him and trade Contreras for an elite OF prospect like Drew Waters and some pitching (or an elite SP prospect and more pitching). Most likely I could see this franchise shopping for their Justin Turner/Max Muncy/Chris Taylor/JD Davis/Carlos Carrasco found starter types meaning they do more buying guys people are down on or moved passed rather than an elite guy

If they were to do something big and obvious it would be te FA Cole. If there were a big trade it would be for Syndergaard, who has two seasons before FA, and for ML pieces. I just don't see them digging up the farm system yet

Now why ever would you think that our ownership group wouldn't try to acquire elite talent when it became available?

I remember that one day when Betts declared that he wanted to go by his birth name henceforth
