The Los Angeles Dodgers threw down the gauntlet and pulled off the biggest blockbuster trade of the offseason, acquiring Mookie Betts and David Price from the Boston Red Sox in a three-team deal that only required them to part with outfielder Alex Verdugo, pitcher Brusdar Graterol and starter Kenta Maeda.
With all of their Top-100 assets, including infielder Gavin Lux, pitcher Dustin May, and catcher Keibert Ruiz still with the organization, the Dodgers have more than enough ammo to put together an MLB superteam and acquire former Indians shortstop Francisco Lindor.
A trade for Lindor, who crushed at least 32 home runs and 40 doubles for the third straight year, would likely cost not only a top prospect or two, but it could force the Dodgers to part with either Justin Turner or Corey Seager to open up a spot for the star slugger.
Pricy? Yes. However, Andrew Friedman could have something special on his hands here, and adding Lindor would clearly make them the class of the MLB.
Lindor would probably cost a lot more than Betts given Lindor is under team control until 2022 and the Indians aren't desperate to unload him, but any player can be had for the right price in this league, and the Dodgers have more assets than anyone to make a deal happen.
