    3. I'm on the trade him side here.

    4. Someone like Dee Gordon would be a nice get.

    5. I'd say minors for sure here, unless someone falls into their laps.
    JB was a horrible hitter this year. Numbers showed a huge decline - in ability to pull the ball for the last two months of the season was very evident. Time to say good bye to Jose imo

    True

    Morales was a significantly better hitter this year

    97 vs 80 wRC+

    As with Zobrist and the no-trade, he could waive it depending on his playing time with the Cubs. Would love to see him in a Jays uniform. Could even be a leadoff option.

    RF Ben Zobrist (S)
    3B Josh Donaldson (R)
    1B Justin Smoak (S)
    DH Kendrys Morales (S)
    SS Troy Tulowitzki (R)
    C Russell Martin (R)
    2B Devon Travis (R)
    LF Teoscar Hernandez (R)
    CF Kevin Pillar (R)

    BN Steve Pearce (R)
    BN Ezequiel Carrera (L)
    BN Alex Avila (L)
    BN Ryan Goins (L) or Dawrin Barney (R)

    Zobrist could play 2B or SS when Tulo or Travis need a day. Or when one hits the DL, Zobrist takes over as the starting 2B or SS. Wouldn't have to see Goins or Barney play everyday. Then could move Pearce or Carrera to LF when Zobrist plays 2B or SS and slide over Teoscar to RF. I'd love to see the Jays bring in Alex Avila to share catching duties with Martin. Probably signs somewhere as a starter though.

    I might not even tune in next year.

    Detroit tanked like a motherfucker in the last third of the season to get that first overall pick.

    Need to find a way to get Profar this offseason. Almost a certainty heís gonna be traded because heís out of options and that infield is pretty crowded.

    I say trade Dalton Pompey to the Rangers for Profar. Both former highly regarded prospects that have been injury ridden and havenít been able to put it together with their respective clubs. Pompey has more control and has another year of options, but we have a glut of OF as it is in Buffalo. We can afford to lose him. Rangers need OF depth and we need IF depth. Perfect trade.

    There is all sorts of shit from this presser that Atkins is saying. Bautista is likely gone, wants to add speed, Vlad Jr. not in the 2018 plans but won't count him out, Blad Jr. might get OF reps next year because Atkins thinks both Donaldson and Vlad can be on the team, etc.

    Hey everyone.

    I made the mistake of watching the presser, which I must admit I become a fan of Atkins more and more when I hear him speak, but the comments by people on the SportsNet board were just awful - not a single positive note. All just a bunch of negative Nancys. From now on just going to avoid reading them.

    Avoid Reddit, avoid comments to articles posted on new sites, avoid Twitter. Take what Atkins says, and try to figure out what players he may be interested in. Debate their merits with other level headed people. You'll be much happier, enjoy the process, and probably learn some stuff too

    Yeah the Sportsnet board is probably the worst. Reddit is also bad. Shatkins is largely responsible for the fantastic team in Cleveland so I trust them more than dopes on the internet.

    I have not tried Reddit. I have certain sites that I enjoy reading.

    In regards to "Shatkins", I did not fully welcome them on-board, I waited until after a year into their tenure to see how they would operate and now I can say I like them. I personally do not see them doing a full Houston/Chicago rebuild considering how it would kill the goodwill created by the past couple of seasons and alienate the fan base, even if they are casuals (I know some of you despise casuals).

    I heard Stanton is going to be out of Miami...... Might as well plop him into that 3rd spot in the order behind JD..... I am sure that wouldn't intimidate pitchers.
