MLB trade rumors: Big-contract players Braves, Indians, Phillies should deal for no matter the cost But what hurts even worse than a team selling is an organization wallowing in obscurity and failing to win a title because of it. Or worse, failing to even make the postseason.There are several teams this year that are on the bubble coming into the last week before the trade deadline and we think we know who should sell. And again, it will be tough for those teams, but it will save a lot of pain down the road. Related News Who the team should trade: Bauer, Brad HandRockies: 47-54, last in NL West, 6 1/2 games out of second wild-card spotIt hasn’t worked in Colorado this year. The Rockies just haven’t pitched well and there’s little hope of getting them out of their current hole. We don’t think this team should make a massive trade of Charlie Blackmon or anything like that though he would get a big return and teams are asking about him, but we do think they should move one starter and at least one reliever. Maybe two. The guy we’ll focus on here is Jon Gray. He’s never quite found his way in Colorado and we think he needs to get out of that ballpark to reach his full potential. He still has amazing stuff, but with the velocity he has he is always going to give up tons of home runs there. Moving on from him would be good for both the Rockies and him.Who the team should trade: Gray, Scott Oberg, Jake McGee It’s completely understandable why teams are often reluctant to get rid of players at the trade deadline, and why fans don’t like it either. It’s a sign of giving up and basically sends the message a team doesn’t care about the rest of the season.Moments like this are hard to swallow, but a lot of times they’re necessary. Selling now can help build a better team later. Why Giants, Indians, Rockies should sell at the deadlineGiants: 52-50, second in National League West, two games back of second wild-card spotThe Giants are the hottest team in baseball right now. They have won 17 of their last 20 games and have played really good baseball as of late. But they absolutely have to sell. And we’ll give you an example as to why. The Astros were in a similar spot to the Giants in the mid-2000s. They were coming off of a World Series berth in 2005 and had enough to compete for the next five years. The issue was they had missed on players in the drafts in those years, traded away prospects to get players to keep the MLB team competitive and they were becoming one of the oldest teams in baseball. Ed Wade took over the team and tried to help them win and signed Carlos Lee to a big deal and kept Lance Berkman around and Roy Oswalt as well. In spite of all of that Houston missed the playoffs from 2006 to 2010 and was eventually forced to tear it all down and start over with Jeff Luhnow. Houston went on to lose a combined 324 games from 2011 to 2013 and went from 2006 to 2014 without making the playoffs.The Giants are a similar team. They traded away prospects to get an older Evan Longoria, they have one of the oldest infields in baseball and a rotation with a lot of uncertainty. If the Giants don’t trade their assets while they have value now they will just make their recovery period longer. And in a division with some very good young talent on the Dodgers and Rockies, San Francisco could have a massive uphill battle ahead of it and it would entirely be of their own doing. This team needs to make trades and make them by July 31. And it will be for the good of this team’s future.Who the team should trade: Madison Bumgarner, Sam Dyson, Will Smith, Tony WatsonIndians: 58-42, second in American League Central, first wild-card spotThis one is a bit of a cop out, we’ll be honest. We don’t think the Indians should sell because they don’t have a chance to get to the playoffs. We think they could trade and still make the postseason. We just think a couple of moves here and there will help them moving forward into next season. And with the guys we think they should move it certainly won’t hurt them right now. Trevor Bauer might be the absolute best starter on the market and he would fetch a really good return as he has one year of control left. With any other team this might not be a good idea, but with the rotation the Indians have apart from Bauer (Mike Clevinger, Shane Bieber, Corey Kluber), they can afford to lose him and not feel it too badly. On the other hand, the team could also consider dealing Brad Hand and we’re not sure that’s a great idea. They don’t really have a guy who can take over his spot and keep them competitive. We’ll still put him on the list, though we’re not sure we’d support it.
