    I don't think there is anyway that he is a dodger come Spring is there? TBH i am still a little surprised he is still with them.

    Puig for Osuna and Smoak (who they can cut if they like). Who says no?

    A lot of people in and around the Blue Jays and the organization

    Great fit and great salary over the next two years (Puig). No clue what the Dodgers would want though.

    I think it would be an interesting trade. Puig has 3 years of control left, and is projected at 3 WAR next year (and the projection looks reasonable to me). The cost (after factoring in Smoak) would be ~4M / year plus the arbitration year. Whether Puig is a clubhouse cancer/distraction or not, I don't know. Add Moss and we'd be looking at about 12M left to add a few relievers and a backup catcher.

    What about Biagini and prospects instead of Osuna?

    All this WAR talk is making me sick. It's a bullshit new age stat that means nothing.

    Lol!

    It's all-encompassing. It actually means everything.
    It's not perfect, but it's the best stat available to us to measure a player's contributions in all facets of the game.

    It's not the be-all/end-all, but, like any stat, it should be used with other stats to best gauge a player's value and output.

    Puig is risky but has a lot of upside. I think we'd be crazy to give up Osuna (young, good, cheap, a position we need more not less of) for him, but if there was another way to trade for him then I'd be all for it.

    I didn't think he was trolling. I assumed he was an old-school guy, based on previous posts. Meh...maybe I'm wrong.

    I wonder if Sanchez would get it done. Think I'd do that fairly easily.

    E: oops, I forgot that Puig isn't super cheap.

    Is Ben Revere free right now? I know the org has had a big swing and hates him apparently. But to me, he's still got some juice in those legs and contact and quality ab's are real. Plus the defense is really solid in LF/CF, route running be damned.
