    Ya my initial thought was those two for Donaldson. But if we're rebuilding then we should be able to use future payroll to take some of the Mets' bad contracts for an even better package.

    Pretty much. I mean, we failed to make it to the World Series the past two seasons, and if we couldn't do it with those teams, we're not going to do it with this one. At least maybe the success of the Leafs rebuild will take out the sting for some fans.

    Also see the Braves as a potential destination for Donaldson

    You might as well trade Osuna as well unless you're looking to turn him into a starter. There's really no point in hanging onto elite relievers on a rebuilding team.

    I'd even listen on S & S. If someone really wants them badly they may overpay.

    If we go into a rebuild - I'd trade Sanchez in a heartbeat. Pillar too.

    The team has been hitting terribly but it's not like it's a terrible team. A couple timely hits and we're over .500 right now. We lost four games by one run and three games by two runs.

    But no team has ever made the playoffs from this position. I mean you can hope for a miracle, but reality suggests the window has closed and with so much uncertainty moving forward, these are legitimate discussions to have. Plus they are fun.

    Waiting much longer and you'll get even less for whatever tradeable assets you may have. I'd rather deal a guy a year too early than a year too late.

    Its all pre-season until the all-star break.

    This is true and they waited too long to move Bautista / Tulo. Pitching carried the team to the postseason last year. Without JB or Tulo, they still make it or come close, but more importantly are better set up for future success. Now, they will get virtually nada in return for those players.

    IF JB can come around a bit he has value I would think. Tulo's contract makes him borderline unmovable.

    the 2011 redsox were 2 and 10 to open the season and finished 90 and 72 and missed the playoffs by one game after going through a collapse and ending the season 3 and 9 in their last 12 games.

    Be silly to trade anyone now. Wait for contending teams to overpay in June/July. Will make a killing on Donaldson. Estrada would be a rental for someone. Would struggle to shift Tulo and Martin due to their contracts. In terms of "win now", id give us every chance to win something by changing the hitting coach and take a new approach. In a couple months I'd bring up Pompey and Tellez (assuming he continues to play well), to bring in some youth and give them some real game action.

    Trading Pillar would make the major league team worse and likely not help the future major league teams. You're not going to get much for a defense only outfielder who is 28. He is a free agent at age 32 so Toronto can go year to year with him and non-tender him once his legs go. I don't see the point in subtracting a 2 or 3 WAR outfielder now unless you can get a haul.
