5 Potential Moves That Would Send Shockwaves Through the MLB

It's not easy to shock the baseball community these days.

The steroid era and continued positive tests for performance enhancing drugs have left many of us cynics, shocked only when phenomenal production is not the result of a synthetic substance, but instead the result of hard work and raw talent.

Ridiculous contracts have become the norm, and teams giving up big-time prospects to acquire stars who are past their prime—moves that never actually work out as intended—is something that has gone on for decades.

But there are still occasions when we sit down and say, "Whoa, I can't believe that just happened."

We need only look back to the trade between the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers for the latest example, a move that saw more than a quarter-of-a-billion dollars in salary change hands in the blink of an eye.

In no way am I suggesting that the transactions on the pages that follow will happen, nor am I saying that they should happen—though in at least one case, I believe the move makes sense for all parties involved.

So with that in mind, I invite you to take a look at five moves that would send shockwaves through America's pastime.
