    I'll do as I do must offseasons and vouch for Jarrod Dyson. Can be had on a likely 1 year deal. Gives us another lefty bat, improves team speed and can backup Pillar in CF. Platoon him with any of Pearce, Pillar or Teoscar. Spend some money on a 5th starter like Lance Lynn. I'd probably try to upgrade backup C too. It's not sexy but I'm fine with having the kids in the OF not being blocked. If you've got an OF defense of Pillar and Dyson, you can probably afford to have Pearce as the 3rd member out there.

    "Am I the only one who thinks that, given an outfield of Pillar, Hernandez and Alford, that Pillar would be the worst of them? I know I'm higher on Alford than most, and I think Teoscar could be an above average MLB regular next year, but... Is that just me?"

    Gibby is really high on Alford He was on Sirius talking about him. Said he had never seen an athlete that transformed himself so quickly. He actually was glowing about him and said he was sure if he hadnt had injuries, he would have been in the bigs by now.

    I don’t know how good of a fielder he is, but Grichuk’s bat would be a nice add to the lineup as well. STL is set with Ozuna, Pham and Fowler in the OF.

    Randal Grichuk? The below average hitter who is projected to be a below average hitter next season?

    you're writing off a 25 year old hitter who has less than 1500 plate appearances and a career 108 wrc+ in the 1386 plate appearances he does have?

    Nah, thatís Hernandez. Carrera will play the same role he has for the last few seasons.

    Though it would have been a bad move to let him go when we only have 1 MLB established OF, plus Pearce.

    With the Yellich rumours flying - I listened to a podcast on fan590 about a strait up swap of Bo Bichette for Christian Yellich. The pundit feeling that Bo isn't good enough to be a starting shortstop and will have to move to second.

    I have also seen a trade suggestion with Anthony Alford as the main piece.

    I like Yellich who seems like a complete player and has 5 years of control.

    Assuming for the moment that the Jays would really not want to move Vlad or Bo - is there really any other trade offer that would allow us to land Yellich - I'd have to think other teams could offer a better package than say Anthony Alford, Sean-Reid Foley, Logan Warmoth, (+1).

    Way too much or way too little?

    I just think that Zeke will get more AB's than he should. That's my main point.

    Agree with you there. Even if we sign a starting LF, itís likely Pearce that would be the one to not play as much in the outfield, or be traded.
