    I don't expect the team to be very god anyway. I think they're doing all they can do given the circumstances: support Tulo and Travis with legitimate MLB players who will be above replacement level if/when they are needed, and doing it without mortgaging the future.

    For a team that seemingly is going for the 2nd WC I think the middle infield is probably in okay shape.

    Agreed. His stock is on the rise. He's certainly not a sure thing, but I think SD picked up a piece with some solid upside.

    So the locks to make the lineup/bench are probably:

    C - Martin
    1B - Smoak
    2B - Travis
    3B - Donaldson
    SS - Tulowitzki
    CF - Pillar
    LF/RF - Pearce
    LF/RF -
    DH - Morales
    SS/2B/3B - Diaz
    2B/3B - Solarte
    LF/RF - Carrera
    C -

    Hernandez/Alford and maybe Pompey in play for the last OF spot, and Maile, McGuire, and Jansen in play for the backup C spot. The bench actually looks good.

    I hope so, but there's plenty of reasons to be concerned about Travis and Tulo. This is certainly better than it Barney/Goins twosome but I also don't think they're everyday players... And I worry that's what will be asked of them.

    So, in a vacuum, this is a solid addition, but looking at the team as a whole, I don't see us in WC contention at all.

    Here's hoping.

    It's a huge improvement!

    I still don't think we'll ever see Pompey in a Jays uniform again. I said it over a year ago and I'm sticking with it.

    JDM in that empty slot would fill things in so nicely.

    Well Steamer has them pegged as 1 WAR players in only 80 games. 1.5 to 2 WAR players are probably fringe starters, good backups.

    I guess this means Pearce is starting in the outfield again. The bench looks set with Solarte, Diaz, Zeke, and backup catcher. Pearce obviously won’t start over Smoak or Morales. I guess they will add a RF and that will be it for the position players.

    I'd almost argue it's a strength now.

    Yeah. But who knows if Travis will even get past 200 PA this year. Slarte/Diaz probably combine for 500+ PA at 2B.
