Question time: What prospects are untouchable in trade talks?

In today’s exciting news:

Joel Payamps has been traded to the Royals for ‘cash consideration’. They will consider playing cash for him. As you know, Payamps was DFAed a couple of days ago. He did a nice job for us, I can only hope the best for him.

The Jays have signed 15 of their draft choices and two undrafted players:

I’m watching the Orioles and the Rays, hoping that the O’s can hold on to a 1-run lead in the 9th. They couldn’t.

Since there isn’t much for news, I thought I’d put up some poll questions asking what prospects you think are ‘untouchable’ in deadline trade talks.

I’ll do this under the understanding that really no one is untouchable, but, for this, untouchable in the real-life type of deal you might make at this time of the season.

Slightly off-topic, but Buster Olney said in a tweet that Covid vaccine information is part of the information that is shared between teams before trades. I’d imagine that might change the equation on dealing for a player.

Anyway,
