Would you want to trade Story and Marquez for that return?
So, in other words, would you, as a Rockies fan, be happy if the Rockies traded Story and Marquez for that return? Your reaction would probably be the same as Indians fans on social media: you would be outraged and say that the team was fleeced while calling for their owner to sell the team.
But the Rockies may still have to pull off that deal. If the Rockies cannot come to an agreement to sign Story long-term, that is the Rockies’ best option because if they do neither, they will get nothing for him.
Since they traded for Lindor, the Mets are definitely out on Story and likely out on Arenado. But considering that Mets ownership is the only ownership not to lose a dime in 2020 and they didn’t lose any of their current top prospects, the Mets still have plenty of players and money to get Arenado.
Now, it’s a matter of whether or not both the Mets want him enough and whether or not Arenado would approve of a trade.
