    Would be perfect. The Jays need to get rid of Smoak anyway they can.

    Is Bruce even better than Smoak? Seems like a lateral move for a lot more money.

    I'd DFA Smoak before trading him for Jay Bruce and just roll with Pompey at this point.

    Need 2 OFers. Valbeuna is the best lefty bat left on the market. Moving Smoak opens up a spot for him and getting Bruce poorly fills an OF spot. Gotta get the Mets to include a prospect with Bruce

    I'd say he's better, certainly fits the team better. Worth the extra $4.5 Million it would cost all be it Smoak's money is spread over 2 years.

    Probably not. Maybe slightly better. But we need an OFer. Pair him with Upton in a platoon. And we might be able to pick up a prospect as a lottery ticket in the deal.

    How much WAR do you guys think we need to get from LF and RF to be a playoff team? 4? 5?

    4 to 6 might put us in position?

    That's a pretty tough ask. Right now Pompey is slated for 1 WAR so you have to take that into consideration. There really isn't 6 WAR on the market

    Need to sign Bautista and trade for Puig or someone like him. If no trade then rolling Pompey out there in a platoon with Upton would be my second choice.

    There are several combinations that can realistically produce ~6 wins. Bautista, Blevins, Valbuena could be one example.

    Maybe but it requires execution on the front offices part

    Maybe the mods should conduct their own execution.

    Even though Bats is a horrible outfielder he's probably the best one still remaining. I wonder what it would take to get Puig. The Dodgers kind of soured on his attitude but I can't see Friedman selling low on him because of attitude problems.

    If those two don't happen everyone needs to cross their fingers that none of our outfielders get hurt.

    I guess we will find out soon enough won't we? Spring training is only a 6-7 weeks away.
    Goodbye AA.
