Who are your Trade Targets in M2O?

SDS

My first one I started is with the White Sox and I'm only into May. I think I'm going to get the max amount of TA points because we're the team with the best record in the whole American League. Surprisingly, the White Sox really don't have too many spots we can upgrade aside from getting a better closer. second baseman, right fieldef, and a decent number 2/3 starting pitcher. We don't have too many attractive trade pieces so I've set my sights a bit low...

Ken Giles / Closing Pitcher
Considering the Blue Jays are still in the midst of acquiring young talent for the next few years, this is a trade that is actually pretty realistic in my game's current landscape. Giles would give us a true 'elite' closer that we could lean on.

Tommy La Stella / 2B
Despite the additions the South Siders made in the offseason, we're still pretty light on left-handed hitters. La Stella is coming off an injury-shortened year in '19 but prior to going down, he looked well on his way to All-Star bid. He's someone who could give us a bit of flexibility with our infield and provide the left-handed pop that we're looking for.

Joc Pederson / OF
We've been rumored to be interested in him quite a few times in real-life. He's someone I'd love to have on our team, too; he's got left-handed power in droves.

Jose Quintana / Starting Pitcher
Since Cubs fans don't appreciate "Q," I'd love to bring him back to the South Side. He'd fit perfectly in my rotation as I could slide Reynaldo Lopez and/or Carlos Rodon to the bullpen as long-relievers and make room for Michael Kopech whenever I get the prompt to call him up.

And a couple of "shooting for the moon candidates...

Nolan Arenado / 3B

Yeah, I probably won't be able to get him and even if I could, I will almost certainly hate the package it would take to get him but M2O is supposed to be fun, so why not? I'd move Moncada over to 2B in the event that we are actually able to land him.

Zack Wheeler / Starting Pitcher

I loved the White Sox offseason but there is one disappointing aspect of it: the fact we couldn't sign Zack Wheeler. In my M2O, the Phillies are in last place in the NL East so I won't feel too bad about this move from a realism aspect (yeah, I know it'd never happen lol)

I am just about to finish the dodgers for the first time. I traded a prospect for Christian yelich. Then a couple weeks later I was over Trevor story for a kike Hernandez. So, maybe set your sights higher. Look who is in last place and maybe put one of them on your list.

Oh wow!

I honestly thought it would be near impossible to pry a player like Christian Yelich or Cody Bellinger from a team. That really opens up my options.
