Would you trade Wheeler for McCutchen if we could extend him?
Past his present contract.
so for a minute, lets ignore that the bucs would never trade mccutchen who no one here seems to realize is already extended until following his age 30 season w/ a reasonable team option for his age 31 season, meaning they have him under control for the next 6 seasons where the most he would earn is 14.75 mil
given his team friendly contract, it would likely take a package of something like:
harvey, wheeler, flores, & nimmo before they would even start to consider it....and frankly i dont even know if that gets it done if you dont include tda....i think harvey wheeler tda & nimmo would really be what theyd ask for...
but they have him signed to the a cheap extension...
they decided to try to CHANGE that perception of their franchise by giving him that contract...that was the whole point ...they don't have to worry about paying him bc they already took care of that....if they are going to trade him they will want a minimum of 3 top 100 prospects w/ 2 at least top 25 prospects but id assume theyd rather start w/ a guy like harvey
id be shocked if we got him for anything less than harvey wheeler tda & nimmo truthfully
