    How could the Jays fit in EE?

    Could the Jays get rid of Smoak?

    Can Morales play anywhere else?

    Are Pearce or Travis even tradeable?

    Gotta keep Goins and Barney somehow.

    Comments appreciated.

    I would really like to see EE stay. Good bye to Joey bats.

    EE at catcher? Russell Martin moves to OF?

    They could almost certainly get rid of Smoak (and lots of people on these boards would be very happy to see it). Morales could probably play outfield in a pinch, but realistically not all season. Pearce is not tradeable until midseason (we wouldn't want to anyway). Travis is cheap and puts up big value while in the lineup. No reason to trade him, and it's doubtful we'd get someone with his upside in return if we did.

    The only way we could likely keep EE at this point would be to trade someone like Estrada and figure out a cheap way to fill the 5th spot in the rotation. It seems pretty clear we're gonna have to fork out some cash for at least one outfield spot, whether it's Bautista or someone else.

    I'd say a half-gallon of lube ought to do the trick, unless a guy like Upton is seriously packing.

    Sign a solid OF defender. Play 2 man outfield with Pillar + 2 DHs

    If they don't act like a small budget team by letting Steve Pearce affect whether or not they sign him.

    signing Smoak when they did was ridiculous. How was his free agent market going to be so hot that you had to extend him when they did. Worse case scenario they would have paid Smoak 5 or 6 mil a season for 2 if he had really turned it on in the last month and a half. He collapsed and the money we wasted on him was more than double what he would have got on the free agent market.

    I think he could play LF/1b/DH, not many would agree with me though. I'd like to point out that Morales is a pretty big injury risk...So securing Edwin at this price of 80 mill, would be fantastic.

    I doubt the Yankees and Red Sox can resist.

    LOL. Isn't Goins the best pitcher on record for the jays?

    Simple-EE at 1B, KM at DH, Pearce in LF. Trade Smoak for RP or backup catcher.
