    This just in: team trading star player on team-friendly contract demands opposing team's top prospects.

    Shouldn't really surprise anyone. Weren't getting a deal for Cutch done with Urena, Harris and SRF.

    Yes but that's kind of irrelevant to his ability to relay what he's heard.

    Is there more to this? Does "begin" mean that's what Pittsburgh asked before Shatkins hung up or is that where legitimate negotiations are starting?

    I imagine talks stalled pretty quickly after that. I don't think Shapiro is actively trying to get a deal done for him.

    I doubt negotiations are starting. I like McCutchen and if this was 2016 and the Jays were still riding those excellent Bautista and EE deals, I'd say go for it but sadly I don't think it makes sense now. Tulo and Martin will be a year further from their primes and the Red Sox stars will be deeper into theirs. Relatively smaller signings like Pearse and Morales and crossing your fingers makes a hell of a lot more sense for this team right now than going all Marlins/Dickey trade AA mode to try to prop open a window that may have already closed. The later cold haunt the team for years. If the team performs better than expected, you can always make a win now move at the deadline but it's way too risky right now. Obviously prospects never are sure thing and you never know which ones you'll regret trading but Vlad looks pretty excellent right now. It's not that hard to imagine him being to Atkins what Syndergaard was to AA.

    I really believe the Jays are fully waiting out Bautista at this point and will only sign him when they are 100% certain they aren't getting a comp pick for him in return and presumably still have the hole to fill. Maybe that's Feb. 1st or something but I'd reckon they have a timeline in mind. Honestly, if he waits it out until June I'll be disappointed that we didn't sign him. This talk about trading for Cutch as a bounceback candidate seems so redundant when we have Bautista available to us.

    You're reaching... Blair's own ideas can be dumb as fuck but I'm pretty sure he's capable of relaying a rumor.
