    No. According to the fangraphs Goins is a 0 WAR player.

    According to the fangraphs Diaz is a 0.5 WAR player in 43 games.

    If he has to play 120 games, Diaz is projected to be 1.5 WAR better than Goins.

    It would be awesome if Tulo is healthy though.
    If we don't win this year we'll win next year, if we don't win next year we'll win the year after that.

    Tulo and Travis may also be healthier. I think a 3+ WAR increase in middle infield production is probably reasonable.

    In fact it looks like Tulo, Travis, Diaz and Solarte are projected for 5 WAR over 320 games.

    It was probably 0 WAR last year.

    Good signing. $5mm is a cup of coffee of Starbucks in MLB terms. Low risk LHH stick, but don't want to see too much of him.

    Jays still need to find some impact/upside players. These moves make it a lot less likely to be a sub 80 win team but I'm not sure there's the upside to get in the high 80/low 90s in Wins.

    A platoon with him and Pearce in Left is what i am dreaming about.

    Even from far away Scotland this sounds good. This guy can hit, he has done wherever he played, he has vast experience, It leaves money still available; win, win. And maybe there is an acronym in that name somewhere!

    IMO Cain isn't happening anymore. We've got about $15 million left or so and here is how we are set up.

    LF- Granderson/Pearce
    RF- Hernandez
    #5 SP- Biagini

    Cain alone would probably take up the remaining funds we have left. I expect that they'd rather use most of those funds on a SP and kick Biagini to the swingman role.

    That would be stupid. You would be spending way more money and lose all of the value gained by getting Cain by playing Hernandez.

    Pillar isn't going to get much back in a trade given how many OFers are on the market.

    I would rather get a starter. I don't think they are going to spend that 15M anyway. Continue to look at low cost adds.

    Jaime Garcia might be a cheap(ish) starter on the market. MlbTR predicted 2/16 for him, which is reasonable.
