    I predict we acquire Bruce for a non-prospect while the Mets eat $3M.

    Sounds about right. I could live with Bruce in LF at $13M if we could get them to take Smoak and include Duda at a reasonable price. Then trade for Dyson and collect draft picks for JB & EE.

    Yeah only explanation I have is that both Shapiro & Atkins have a man crush on this guy. Jay Bruce is no Kevin Kiermaier.

    I'm not sure why we don't just re-sign Michael Saunders on a reasonable 1-2 year deal. His market has been totally silent and I'm sure he'd love to stay. I'd offer him Pearce money or maybe slightly more.

    He's kind of the forgotten man. Was linked with the Orioles a few weeks ago but that's the only time I've noticed any rumours.

    I guess he's seen by teams as not much better than JB or Trumbo in the field who both could potentially sign on the cheap and/or a one year deal.

    JB, Trumbo and Saunders are all ideally DH's, who could prob play 1B OK, and have experience in OF but suck there.

    Smoak for Bruce would work for me. At least Bruce only has a year left and might be able to pull a Trumbo before he hits free agency. But acquiring Bruce with Smoak getting regular time at first? Nah.

    Trading Smoak's 2/8.5 for Bruce's 1/13 would be great.

    Manny Ramirez is considering a comeback overseas somewhere. I wonder if he will be any good at 44.

    I wouldn't mind a Bruce-for-Smoak deal and then signing Bautista/Encarnacion.

    Bruce-Pillar-Pearce(Bautista)
    JD-Tulo-Travis-Pearce(EE)
    Martin

    4OF-Upton
    INF-Barney
    C-????
    BEN-Pompey/Carera/Goins/Other

    I realize I put Pearce twice. Put one of the bracket players in the lineup the other on a different team. I realize a Bruce-Pillar-JB outfield would be horrendous, maybe Pearce with JB at 1st?

    I don't think Shatkins have any intention of giving up what it would cost for Dyson. I'm guessing Pompey/SRF/Alford giving what Eaton got.
