    That's not necessarily an issue though. The trade market is still a thing for both of them as soon as the ASB 2017. You could trade Morales when you feel Tellez is ready.

    Edwin would have a full NTC because of 10-5. Also looks bad trading a player so soon after signing them.

    Buster Olney: Initial asking price on Encarnacion in range of $125m over five years... but the sheer volume in 1B-DH-Of market working against him

    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.
