What are your thoughts on a trade involving Bill Guerin for Glenn Murray? We will save 2.7 million this year but will be on hook for his Murrays' 4.0 million for two years after that.
Consider this: we would be playing 2.3 million if we buy Guerin out regardless, so it costs us 1.7 million to get Glenn Murray for the next two years.
I think this is really the most feasible trade option for Guerin.
I'm not sure how Boston feels about this. If they really wanted to get out from Glenn's remaining 3 years, yes this may work. But I think Boston is content with keeping Murray at $4.1 / year for the next 3 years.
Boston MIGHT trade a late round pick for Dollar Bill stright up though.
