Carlos Pena is the IDEAL trade candidate for a contending team in dire need of an upgrade, at 1B. Why?

He is a GREAT clubhouse guy...

He has been on winning clubs, in recent years...

He is very good defensively...

He has 14 HR...good for top 10 in baseball, at his position...

He has a + .127 OBP...

Pena would also allow an AL team to move a poor defensive 1B to DH...

Pena would net a very solid prospect in return.

Ramirez would bring even more in return than Pena... The only obstacle is his no-trade clause... which the opportunity to be thrust into a playoff race, could entice Aramis to wave.

The Cubs will be a very active team at the deadline this season...and they have the players to fetch good returns on.
