    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.

    I have to think Koehler will be non-tendered for sure (or signed at a lower rate). They're not gonna pay him 6 or 7 million in arbitration. I suspect Loup may be non-tendered too, with Mayza and Dermody (somewhat) looking capable. Goins is a little more difficult. We need someone shortstop capable defensively in the backup role, but I'm scared of what he may get in arbitration due to the RBIs.

    I'm hoping Carrera is also non-tendered.

    Trade for Zobrist or Dee Gordon, let Devon Travis get some reps in the outfield (maybe without having to constantly dive and stuff, his knee may hold up better).

    I pray to god that Goins is gone.

    I wouldn't mind them trying to sign Loup and Zeke at a lower rate. They can be extremely frustrating but they aren't bad players. Koehler is one injury plagued season away from being a capable 5th starter and I wouldn't mind having him back but I wouldn't give up much to get him.

    That Koehler trade was still sort of weird. He's 31-years old and even during his best season wasn't more than a #6 SP. But I guess he's be a nice swing man. Anderson and Koehler would be nice SP depth if they both sign. I have to think the FO has interest in that, otherwise why make those moves during a lost season?

    Yeah I agree. They must like him and then they must also think that acquiring him with a year of control will allow them some leverage to bring him back at a reduced cost or something.

    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?

    Booooo... Raffy has a bat can't catch, Santos did well in LR, and Ramirez looks like a backend reliever, quite impressive, converted catcher and has been light's out.

    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.

    JDM and Otani would be so dreamy.

    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
