    My answer would be yes if St.Louis or who ever had the right package. And the jays
    could sign the right free agents what do you think

    Can they contend with him? Were they better in 2015 during his MVP season? They were close, in appearance only, but a still a long way from even getting to the WS. They’ve been on a steady decline ever since Shapiro arrived.

    With Tampa trading Evan Longoria to the Giants for a good little package.
    Just what could the jays get for Josh Donaldson. From say St. Louis or any other team.
    Ideas?

    The package I have suggested before that I think makes sense for both teams

    St Louis
    Alex Reyes
    Jedd Gyorko
    Randal Grichuk

    For

    Josh Donaldson.

    The packaged you suggested for Josh Donaldson isn't big enough. And would be a slap in the face to the jays to trade.
    Has to be at least 6 or 7 good players. 3 mlb ready players and 3 or 4 top prospects. For the jays to even listen.
    Top level players who are close. or to improve the jays upper prospect levels.

    Don't think the Cards would do that.

    after for a couple of years now.

    I'd easily do that deal without Grichuk. Hell, I'd trade Donaldson for Reyes and a couple lottery tickets. Something like Reyes/Mercado/Gomber would be a fair return.

    I think you're light on this one. They just threw up a 6WAR projection on Donaldson, even if its just 1 year, its a bid deal.

    Everybody know Donaldson is walking after this year. So time is now to trade him. Have to get at least five players for him.
    For a fast rebuild and still contend for the playoffs. With a couple of good signings and other trades. The right free agents.
    Or other Trades. Without trade the jays top 2 prospects.

    I don't think Jays need Grichuk and even without him they would do that deal.

    Make them throw in Gyroko and Weaver? And then maybe see if they'd take back Morales and/or Tulo?
