    Even Wilson and Avila netted pretty light returns, they at least got a top 100 prospect out of the deal though.

    Wouldn't Groome or Chavis be a hefty price tag on a reliever? I mean Reed's been good this year, but still.

    Somewhere the Cleveland FO must be counting their lucky stars that Lucroy blocked a trade to them (in which they were rumoured to be giving up Mejia). I also just read Cleveland is considering a Mejia for Darvish trade.

    It doesn't matter. If your the jays you need to sell, if you can only get a lottery ticket then so Be it. Our window has closed and the time is now. If shatkins is honestly contemplating going for it next year I will be shocked, I think it's all smoke and mirrors, I mean it's gotta be, any competent front office should be able to see the writing on the wall

    If they're willing to give up Mejia they really should have just went to find the pieces to land Quintana before he got dealt.

    Jays are in a tough position. All the guys that it makes sense to sell on, are having down years.
    So, not sure if it makes sense to sell now for extra control, or wait until next year and hope they rebuild their value.

    Our window is not closed we just need to retool a bit of the roster. We are most likely going to finish the year around .500, with almost everyone having a down year and an awful showing from our starters.

    3B- Donaldson
    SS- Tulo
    2B - Travis
    1B - Smoak
    RF - Alford?
    LF - ?
    CF - Pillar
    C- Martin
    DH - Morales/Pearce

    1. Stroman 2. Sanchez 3. Happ 4. Biagini 5. Estrada?

    2018 the pipeline is re-established and we'll guys who could contribute that actually have long term potential, both position players and SP.

    That's not a very good lineup unless multiple guys have major rebounds AND Smoak keeps this up

    Dammit putting Dexter Fowler in the leadoff spot this last off season would have changed the whole complexion

    The DH position seems pretty full already man.

    Sign JD Martinez to play RF. Trade for Ian Kinsler to play 2B. Trade for Robbie Grossman to play LF and to DH occasionally. Trade Morales and get rid of his ass which will open up the DH spot for Steve Pearce. Boom!
