Forget Jake Peavy for now--how about Matt Cain? In the absence of specific rumors, we've been lusting after Cain for awhile, going off the general theory that the Giants have a bunch of good pitchers but crappy hitters, and the Brewers have a bunch of good hitters but crappy pitchers. Indeed, as reported on MLBTR, San Francisco is both shopping Matt Cain
and looking to acquire a hitter
. We want him and have those!
Doug Melvin has said before that he's not trading Mat Gamel or Alcides Escobar (and I'm not sure if Escobar qualifies as a "bat" anyway), but you never know. Further into the realm of fantasy, there's Prince Fielder hogging first base and J.J. Hardy approaching free agency. Hey, Bill Hall can hit. Kind of.
So what do you think? Is a trade for Cain realistic? Who would you package to get him?
