    Maybe trading Morales after the 2017 season then? If the budget can afford it, I would do it. It gives Tellez one full year in AAA to rake before he's ready the following season.

    Seriously it's members like jerb that help make this forum great. I never go chasing news because anything worth noting gets posted here and within minutes at that.

    This is really a great forum in general. Sometimes I just leave the board active on my phone and then refresh every hour or so. Much easier than sifting through Twitter news. The quick info and commentary you get here is excellent.

    So Davidi's article mentions Moreland as being seriously considered. Does this FO want another Justin Smoak? I don't get it...

    Why haven't we looked more into Luis Valbuena? He fits what this front office wants to a tee.

    Less Moreland and more Lessland.

    But in all seriousness, why Moreland? I'd swap him for Smoak if his defense is as good as people are alleging, but Smoak would need to be a throw-in in a trade or something. I'm hoping it's just a slow news day and some controversial Jays content was sorely necessary.

    I'll always be grateful for his inability to pick that one throw, though.

    Don't confuse twitter rumours for front office attention! For all we know Luis Valbuena is in Toronto, snorting coke off Ross Atkins' dick right now.

    Flyball distance, had an unusual dip in hitting against RHP last year. While small...is an upgrade on Smoak. Still a bad choice but I'd guess this was their thought process if it's true.

    Looks more like 2015 was the outlier than anything, he's been bad for most of his career. Seems that they are valuing exit velocity more than they should if they're actually considering signing him.

    Even if you want him this would be a move you make in January, not now. The market is full of 1B/DH.

    I'd definitely take Moreland over Smoak if there was a way to remove Smoak from the roster without eating his contract. I prefer neither though.

    How can you justify signing Moreland and having Smoak on the same team. Honestly if there is any truth to these rumours it really make me question a lot.

    It hurts me that there are people here looking to defend or justify such ridiculous moves instead of calling out the franchise on questionable decision making

    You might see them both, Smoke at one and Moreland in RF... Yikes
