    How much will Pillar and Stroman likely get in arbitration?

    There's enough money available to spend

    Hopefully they can lure a solid OF bat and SP2 caliber starter or trade for one and sign the other

    Some interesting arb decisions this year: Goins, Koehler, and Loup are all potential non-tender candidates.

    Man I pretty much stopped watching the Jays after the ASB. I don't even know what a Raffy Lopez, or Luis Santos, or Carlos Ramirez even is. ARE THESE EVEN REAL PEOPLE?

    Is J.D. Martinez + Otani + Tanaka + Darvish too much to ask?

    I bet the only one of those the team will be even a bit interested in is Otani. They won't definitely won't give Darvish his 150M, or Tanaka his 100M.

    Realistically I think they should absolutely target and be willing to spend big on one of either Otani or Martinez

    I'd pass on Tanaka and Darvish on the $$$ and years that they're likely to get

    They are looking to deal for Stanton so we don't need Martinez

    No way do I trust that Smoak can do that again (although I HOPE he can) and Morales is now probably just a very slow, league average hitter

    We need a solid addition to the lineup

    What about Alex Cobb? He had a really good 2nd half.

    Yeah I hope he's a target.

    AL East experience, very good when fully fit, and (hopefully) relatively cheap as teams may not be willing to offer high AAV and/or years after his injury problems. Would make the middle and depth of the rotation look much more solid.

    I wouldn't want Martinez for the contract he'll get. Not when he's a bad outfielder and we already have significant salary tied up in 3 1B/DH players.

    I guess if we got rid of Pearce (and Morales) it'd make more sense.

    I hope the front office strikes early again this year too

    I like that

    Land an impact player you want right away while the big spenders play cat and mouse for months with the small number of big fish

    Alex Cob would be an ideal target for this approach. I bet he doesn't want to wait and wait and wait until the market sees Darvish and Tanaka landed before anyone will get serious in talks with him. This seems to happen to some guys like him every year.

    He's the most interesting of all the mid-range starter arms available, where the team has shown a willingness to shop (Happ, Estrada). The only other guys who really grab my attention are Lynn and Garcia. Even then, I think I'd max out at two years for Cobb and Lynn and one for Garcia.
