MLB trade rumor grade: Sonny Gray to the Dodgers?

Sonny Gray is getting traded before Monday afternoon. That much has all but been decided by now. Teams as far reaching as the Yankees, Brewers, Astros, Mariners, and Braves have been connected to the A’s star but where he will most likely end up seems to shift every day.

While he has been connected to the Dodgers through various rumors during the past week, MLB.com’s Jon Morosi is now saying that the Dodgers are increasingly confident that they will end up with either Yu Darvish, Justin Verlander, or Sonny Gray before all is said and done.

Of those three options, Gray is currently the most likely to be traded to someone over the weekend (if not sooner). So we’re here to figure out how realistic it is that he could be heading down the coast from Oakland to LA.

But my plight did get me thinking. You see, these very good baseball players also touched down in Miami for the All-Star Game (Mookie Betts even flew himself and Chris Archer here in a private plane!). So I wondered if they, too, have been haunted by the ghosts of Astro Lounge and Big Willy Style. I decided it was imperative that I ask them about this, and, since I am a capital J Journalist, I got my chance at media availability ahead of the Home Run Derby on Monday night.

I started with Bryce Harper. He sat at a table draped in a black tablecloth underneath the bright fluorescent lights of Marlins Park, surrounded by other reporters holding their microphones and cameras in his face. The stale air conditioning circulated around him, but his perfect hair was covered by a hat, so it was not blowing in the manufactured wind. The Marlins’ bizarre home run statue of palm trees, flamingos, dolphins, and a giant sun loomed in the background behind him. It all felt a little dystopian.
