    Jays in on J.D. Martinez

    At least they are kicking the tires on him. Offering a full time spot in the hitter friendly confines of Rogers.

    If the Donaldson rumors are true and that he may be shipped out they can fill his power spot with JD until Vlad is ready.

    Lol come on. JD Martinez is the exact type of player that this smarty pants FO would never target.

    I have a very hard time believing that this FO would consider commiting 5-6 years to a 30-year old DH.

    Well, they did​ just commit three years to a 34-year old DH, so...

    Yeah, I'm a Shatkins fan and don't expect them to be involved with JDM (unless his price and term drops significantly), but after the Morales signing, we can't exactly talk about this FO not wanting to commit to old DH's. They have already.

    You know, I'd forgotten about Morales completely. Thanks a lot, ass.

    They arguably signed 3 old DHs last year.

    Trying to sign the bad JD they don't have as opposed to trying to extend the good JD they do have would be madness. Thankfully, there's no link provided so probably no legs to this at all.

    I will take J.D. Martinez if we can also move Morales and his contract out. The $10 million difference in price is worth the 6 WAR swing you would get by the upgrade.
