Carlos Gomez – Milwaukee Brewers

With a year-and-a-half left on his deal, Brewers outfielder Carlos Gomez is probably the most high-impact option on the trade market – at least in terms of feasible options for the Chicago Cubs.

With two All-Star seasons under his belt, Gomez has shown why he’s one of the most versatile and talented outfielders in the game today. He’s a legitimate 30-30 threat on a good year and is one of the best defensive center fielders in the league, as evidenced by his Gold Glove.

The Milwaukee Brewers are a franchise that appears lost this year. They’ve struggled in virtually every regard, while the rest of their division contenders, including the Cubs, Pirates and Cardinals, have continued to improve.

Adding someone like Gomez to the likes of a club that features young talent including Bryant, Rizzo, Soler and others would put Chicago right up there with the Bucs and Cards in the Central.

What remains to be seen is whether or not the Cubs will meet the Brewers’ undoubtedly high asking price. But to get top-notch talent, you have to be willing to pay top-notch prices.
