    I don't know man. He's been pretty damn good when healthy. I would bet his WAR/inning is right up there. He just hasn't been able to stay healthy. Christ that's a good, young, deep rotation now. The Yanks look unstoppable - especially if Torres steps right in and produces. I mean we've said that before (usually about Washington), but hot damn, the next 3-5 years doesn't look promising for the Jays.

    2015 was really good, past two years I'd say just good. A lot more in the Sonny Gray, Marcus Stroman camp than the Bumgarners which is what he was projected for is what I was getting at

    Stro comes with four years of team control vs just two for Cole...whatever the Pirates are getting, it would/should take a lot more to pry Stro away.

    Stro has three years of control left now, but regardless that one extra year should still be worth more than Cole, combined with putting up these numbers in the AL East.

    Yes, thats why i said 'approx market'

    Stro should return a bit more than cole, the equiv of a prospect just outside the top 100 i would say

    In 2015 he was better than Bumgarner has ever been (playoffs excluded). Last year was a bit of a down season (matched Bumgarner's 2012 season). Take all his other season and project them to Bumgarner's innings pitched and he's just as good. He just hasn't been able to stay healthy consistently.

    The guy the Jays should be looking to move and cash in on is Osuna.

    Yeah if Jake McGee is worth 27 mil then Osuna is worth a ton in a trade.

    Yeah seriously. They can still faux contend and rebuild at the same time if they maximize their most expendable assets, and while Osuna is awesome, he's simply not going to have as much value to a .500-ish team than he would for a team planning to seriously contend. If the Jays can get 2-3 top prospects back, then they'd be setting up the future nicely, and may not even lose much in '18 given how unpredictable relievers are. Who knows when Osuna's arm will flake out.

    With one TJS already he's a ticking time bomb to me. Love him as a player and he's been a great story, but the Jays could get some really helpful pieces for him like the Yankees did in 2016 at the deadline.

    Exactly my thoughts too. I'd take 75% of the Giles return, but would target bats instead of arms.

    If the Jays want to compete this year they're going to have to keep him though. Without him the bullpen is easily bottom 10 if not worse.

    But if they sell at the deadline he should be one of the first ones they move.

    If the front office donít even want to trade JD with only a year left, thereís no chance Osuna is going anywhere.
