    I hate Bruce more than anyone Average bat with horrible D but even I would agree with a move that would bring a prospect back and get rid of that lug Smoak

    I'd probably do Bruce for Smoak straight up. You'd be getting Bruce for just under 9M this year, plus saving Smoak's 4M next year.

    They did lose James Loney at 1B, and he's pretty comparable to Smoak. Except Smoak is a switch hitter. I can see the Mets taking him for depth.

    Smoak for Bruce would be a good deal. At least Bruce can actually hit RHP.

    Same. Bruce is actually a useful lefty bat who can play the OF (albeit, very poorly). Much more useful to this team than Justin Smoak.

    You guys wanna add a horrible defender who is making more money than the guy you're trading? I'd rather roll with Carrera

    Jays should just wait until 25 man rosters have to be set and make a trade then

    Ya, Bruce is trash IMO. 30 HR and not much else.

    If they're giving him away maybe he's worth a look as a last resort. But in no way should they get him, a couple relievers (not the ones who signed) and think they had a successful offseason. It's been pretty pathetic since the season ended, other than the Gurriel signing.

    Yes, Smoak would be redundant for the Mets, but Bruce is already redundant for the Mets too. Logic would be take the cheaper useless piece, I guess.
    Smoak at 4+4 may be easier to swallow on their payroll than Bruce at 13+0. It's +9 savings this year and -4 next year, but even if they have to hold Smoaky all year, they may be able to sneak him into a deal next offseason as a salary offload since $4 million is a bit easier to sneak into a deal. It's hard for a team to absorb $13, but $4 is doable.

    If they have to take Smoak for 2 years the difference is just 5 Mil.
