1) Alex Gordon- 29 years old/4.2 WAR
2) Lorenzo Cain- 27 years old/3.2 WAR
3) Norichika Aoki- 31 years old/3.0 WAR
4) David Lough- 27 years old/2.7 WAR
5) Jarrod Dyson- 29 years old/1.8 WAR
6) Justin Maxwell- 30 years old/0.6 WAR
I'd gladly take anybody from that list. They are probably exploring multiple trade scenarios right now, but I doubt they'd keep four left handed outfielders. Three left handers and two right handers is a much more plausible situation. Baltimore needs a platoon partner to match with Steve Pearce. Dyson is a perfect fit. He's;
-capable of playing all three outfield positions
-extremely fast(53 net steals the past two years in a part time role!!)
-hits RHP better than his total batting line
Please go for it!
You nailed it and got your wish.

You actually had Lough #4 and Dyson #5, unless you were just listing who they had.
