    Where do we figure opening day payroll comes in 150 Mil max? What was it in 2016?

    I would love to extend Donaldson and sign EE. Reddick would be a good pickup. I would rather see Pompey play full time than have Upton out there.

    Think we'll get a new hitting coach? Maybe I'm delusional, but I really think Pillar could be decent if he had a different plate approach.

    Higher

    Based on what Shapiro said last week sounds like potentially in the 170-180 range

    I have my doubts I don't think it will be 170

    I think pretty much you can't have EE and Bautista anymore anyways even at 180 there is so much to do

    I'm sure this has its own thread but I cant see resigning Dickie. If he doesnt retire I will be surprised. The big argument in the past for keeping him is that he eats a lot of innings. Well this year with 169 innings, he ranks last on the team. And now we have Liriano.

    I really hope the Budget is well in excess of 140 mil. Less than that and things will have to get really creative.

    I dont think he will retire, I could see him going to an NL team with a big park. Either way I wish him all the best, he seems like an awesome human being.

    Would it be a screwed move to stretch Biagini and trade Estrada or Happ for a young outfielder

    Here's my offseason shitpost. Feel free to destroy it.

    Sign Gomez (LF), Fowler (RF), Pearce (1B) and Alvarez (DH). Offense shouldn't drop off much but the fielding would be very, very good. I have no idea who to get for backup C but we need one. Fill out the bullpen on the cheap and reinforce at the deadline if needed. Get picks for EE and Bautista.

    Lots of work but also lots of opportunity and probably lots of fun for the Jays FO as builders and us as fans.

    ~$50M for your entire starting rotation and three best relievers. That's an almost criminal head start for a team with a budget in the mid-$100's.

    Sign Dexter Fowler for RF, Steve Pearce for 1B.

    QO Edwin and Bats and take the picks. Let Saunders walk. Use a Zeke/Melvin as a cheap Platoon for LF.

    Yeah, Dexter Fowler would be a perfect signing. I really have no idea what he signs for this offseason.

    Anyone like Beltran? I like that his term is likely to be bery short. Flipside of that is that he's 200 years old.

    4 years, 72 million would be my guess.

    The shit offers he got last year were criminal. I think he has attitude issues that scare some teams off. At least I remember reports about that with the Rockies.
