One of the truly awesome features of the offseason MLB Hot Stove league is that speculation is the order of the day.
As the days and weeks pass by, more and more prognosticators give their best estimates, opinions and suggestions regarding player movement across MLB. Much of that comes via trade proposals.
Thus far, dozens of trade proposals have been offered up already. While a couple of trades have come to fruition, I can pretty much guarantee that no one correctly predicted the trade between the Miami Marlins and Toronto Blue Jays.
The term "that came out of left field" was invented just for that type of deal.
As surprised and shocked as many baseball experts were by that transaction, there will no doubt be other deals made this winter that could have a high amount of shock value as well.
We will take a look at some of the trade proposals that have been offered up thus far and attach odds to the possibility of that particular deal actually occurring.
