Jarrod Dyson is basically a poor man's Billy Hamilton. What he lacks in speed and slightly better outfield defense, he makes up for it by being a better hitter than Hamilton.
What would GMDM ask for Dyson, I wonder? He and Yost don't seem too high on the guy. McGuire or Ramirez and Smoak, we eat half the salary?

Saw that Edwin is expected to sign during the winter meetings.
See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!
If you have Dyson you can afford to have a Jay Bruce-Jose Bautista type fielder in the other spot too as he and Pillar cover so much ground.
Dyson in a platoon with Upton would be great value. If you add Fowler and Dyson, that's a huge improvement.
Don't know what it would cost but it might be the cheapest 3 WAR available.
Definitely a solid lineup.
Dyson wouldn't need to platoon. He's really good.
Pompey my 2017 Jays sleeper.
One thing about Dyson I wonder about is how his numbers would transition to playing at RC. Almost like the opposite of Morales he could lose some of his extra base hits because RC and the AL East have smaller ballparks taking away his Triples and a few Doubles. His defense might not be as great valuable either playing in these smaller (though Pillar might debunk that)
Anyone see any studies done on this?
I cant imagine the Yankees doing a deal for EE, they like Sanchez as a long term DH option, plus they have gone away from overpaying older player. With Harper and Company becoming free agents soon, they probably want to keep the payroll room. I think its just Rangers and Jays, and I hate to say it but it might be the Rangers, because Shatkins may not be serious about bringing EE back. The Draft pick is probably too enticing for them.
