    Gruber, you're a special one, man. Strap on your velcro shoes and make your mark on the world, my friend.

    Trade him then, he'll be worthless by the time the jays are good again. Declining defense and a replacement level bat.

    Too early meat, he won't return much. Same as last season when you said this, best to use his BSR and Defense as value to the club.

    He would return at least a B prospect in A ball. Better than nothing. He's a scrub. Jays have internal options might be slightly worse, possibly better.

    I love how Jim manages to turn this clusterfuck fail thread about Pillar into me thinking Pillar is a slam dunk HOFer in two posts. He has a knack for this.

    If all the Jays can get for Pillar is a b-rate A-baller they absolutely need to keep him on the MLB roster which is already thin on OF depth especially on the glove side. Pillar is worth more to this team than a scrub prospect, shit. AT LEAST wait to July to make that kind of decision, if it unfortunately warrants being made.

    If Jim were GM, pretty sure we wouldn't even have a team to take the field because everyone would be liquidized into prospects because reasons.

    Don't forget our stacked DWL and AFL teams.

    Nah, id Only trade the guys projected to be shit before the jays are good again or needing a mega contract. Pillar falls into the former category.

    Alford would be about as good as Pillar, and projected to be above average reg by some. Longhagen or whatever his name is says Alford is better defensively now

    Anyone that claims that Alford can be reasonably expected to be a better defender than Pillar right now is out of their minds, and their opinions going forward should be taken with a big grain of salt. Pretty sure all Eric Longenhagen said was that he expects Alford to be an above-average regular, something which Pillar is currently projected to be for next season.

    I love how JC twists the truth to sound like he knows what he's talking about.

    That's what he gets for spending so much time in the politics threads.

    symborski says alford projects as pillar's equal, longenhagen expects him to be an above average regular.

    Trade pillar while he still has value cuz he will be shit when the jays are good again. Pretty obvious, meat.

    Projects to be Pillar's equal in the future, not '18, you thinking the Jays are going to punt this season is asinine? One more year of Pillar here isn't going to diminish Pillar's value, he's worth more on the roster than trade, is this hard, meat?
