    I am talking about the Phillies. The jays aren't competing now, as much as Shatkins pretends they can.

    Yup. Kingery/Crawford + Sixto + a lotto ticket or two would be pretty intriguing.

    I would try to force Tulo in a Stroman trade, clears $60 million in dead money to go to town elsewhere.

    No point in reducing the return that way. Only thing to do is wait out Tulo and Martin contracts when ~$35M AAV comes off the books. And use it then to get some high value free agent. Vladdy and Bo should be high performers by then.

    I'd much rather continue to pay Tulo than have him kill the value of one of our top assets in a trade.

    If Jays put Stro in play, at least half the clubs in MLB would have strong interest. Cubs and Angels for example.

    This team is not going to compete in 2018, regardless of where Stroman plays. My only concern is where this team will be in 2021...cause that when I'm hoping their next window opens. I don't see anything realistic happening in Toronto for a few seasons.

    Kingery/JP Craw, Sixto, Franco, Medina/Kilome/Suarez and Cabral for JD and Stroman?

    Is this even news? I'm sure 5 other teams "inquired'

    Now is the time to sell high on Stroman. Get some high level prospects.

    With Atkins dragging his heels at the winter meetings, Jays media need something to write about.

    The narrative that the Jays can't compete in 2018 entertains me. The AL is top heavy with 4 good teams (two of which are susceptible to a big injury) and the 5th spot could realistically be barely above .500. I'm not opposed to a retooling but an assumption that you will get zero from Tulo, Pearce and Travis again just seems like a mistake.

    Mlb will have 29 teams above .500 next season.

    Tulo, Travis and Pearce healthy season at same time is the 3rd sign of the apocalypse.
