    +1. The guys we got from Pittsburgh are awful. But then again, most lottery tickets are losers....the guy we get for Liriano will probably also be a loser. However, buying a lottery ticket is always fun.

    Eh, even though Hutch sucks, and Liriano was crap this season, I think they still did pretty well. Added some depth to the farm system for pretty much nothing and took a reasonable gamble with Liriano that worked in '16 and flopped in '17.

    Actually none of those outfielders we named as possible targets are available. My great plan is ruined.

    That's cool, we're not looking for salary relief so if paying money gets us better prospects I'm good with that.

    They should. Team isn't strapped for cash. If anything, that's the one advantage they have in trades. Just eat up salary for everyone except Smith and get a better return, even if it's marginal.

    Yeah, not complaining. Most prospects fail. I was just legit surprised at how bad McGuire and Ramirez have been, and Liriano has been a dumpster fire. Trade looked like a complete heist for awhile, but it looks like Pittsburgh had a read on their guys.

    Both were hurt if that counts for anything.

    Probably Teoscar Hernandez if the Jays are kicking in money to get a better return.
