I like the way you think. Before I read your post, I was thinking of how I'd like to see what Mateo can do if he went back to play Centerfield. The reason being is that this creates a more creative opportunity so that Mateo, Urias, and Henderson can all be in the game at the exact same time with Frasier or Vavra.
To sum up: I'd rather see Hays or Mateo playing Center-field more than I would McKenna. (McKenna is only OK in small doses.) I like your idea better. Vavra and Frasier can split time in the outfield.
Hopefully Cedric isn't out for long. Maybe it's just a tight cramp that happened.
I doubt Cleveland are thinking of selling now because they're only 3.5 games out of first in the AL Central believe it or not. All they need is a hot streak and they're easily competing for a playoff spot. And like someone else said Ramirez may not allow for a trade.
But I like your thinking. I do agree with others it's a bit too much to give up in that trade, but those are two players any team would love to have. Hypothetically I think the O's could trade without having to trade Grayson (who they should not give up on), but trading maybe one of Westburg/Cowser, and maybe Norby, Rom and couple other players further on down the Top 30 list.
