    I suspect the Jays are waiting to find out what happens with the QO. The fact no one seems to know if he's going to decline it or not makes me think there's at least a decent chance he accepts.

    I don't think Bautista accepts the QO, but if he does, my god move him to 1B. I won't be able to stand another season of him in right field.

    I don't think I saw anyone suggest 100M.
    There were several posters that suggested Reddick would get around 90mil. I know BTS said it for sure

    Is anyone satisfied with a platoon of Upton Jr with either Carrera or Pompey for LF next year?

    If so we only need to sign or trade for 1 OF

    In that case I'd aim high though

    Do Carrera and Pompey both still have options?

    I would be if it freed up some cash for the bullpen.

    Carrera is coming back as the 4th outfielder, Pompey needs a good spring training to make the team IMO.

    Yeah, Pompey almost seems destined to be a AAAA player now which is too bad

    If they only sign Reddick I could literally see Gibby being Gibby and use Carerra as a starter & leadoff and platoon Reddick with Upton. Puke.

    If they are only signing one OF to save money sign Reddick to split with Upton and trade for Puig.

    I think he still has a chance of having a decent MLB career, but unfortunately probably not with the Jays.

    His best chance at getting a run in a MLB lineup is prob in a non contending team after a trade as I don't think Gibby trusts him.

    Short of a significant injury to Pillar, it's difficult to see Pompey being given the chance to start regularly for us.

    Clearly with openings in LF and RF, if the Jays were serious about Pompey they'd hand him one of the corners, or at the very least a platoon with Upton, but it doesn't appear that that's even a consideration.

    I will be surprised if a team is willing to give up their first for Bautista. If it was a second round pick and they had already given up their first than maybe

    But hard for me to imagine that a team would give up the first round pick at a time when younger players are making impact faster and faster

    Trade Pompey +? to Atlanta or SD for bullpen help

    Even if he came free Bruce still seems bleh.

    Reddick seems like the best value on the market for whatever reason.
