    If you're willing to take on 68 mil over 3 years on a player not worth anywhere close to that, and trade a stud player to your hated rival, the least could do is put the effort out to state what prospects you would want in return.

    Probably a little better than a TJ Zeuch or Nate Pearson.

    ...
    By the time the Jays are good again, JD is 35-36 and the Ellsbury contract has expired. Meanwhile, Gleyber or whoever is just hitting his prime with the Jays as a cost controlled player.

    I guess the easiest explanation is that the FO has no idea what it’s doing.
    8 teams were in on him including the Jays according to MLBTR. I don't get it?!

    Actually, I'd say more in the 8-10 range.

    Yea he would be really a perfect fit here. For four years of Yelich you offer to take on a bad contract plus add Alford, Zeuch, plus. Perhaps you take on both Prado and Chen to facilitate a move that doesn't require to give up Vlad or Bo.

    Really?

    I'll admit I don't know much about him, but he put up pedestrian FIP, xFIP, BB/K in AA last year. I mean he averaged 98 MPH with the heater in the majors last year, but he seems more Conner Greene than Nate Pearson to me.

    Sure doesn't seem like it.

    Although the Marlins come off as morons here.

    The fuck? That makes no sense. They settled for far far less than that.
