Pirates trade: McCutchen

Jay's trade: Alford and Stroman

Jay's top outfield prospect until Guerrero Jr. Is ready and Stroman.

I realize the Pirates are asking a lot for McCutchen but nobody is biting. This is a realistic offer for him.

Jay's get the piece they need to make one last run at it.

Move Bautista to first for durability/ defensive reasons.

They are stretching out Biagini in the Spring to potentially start. If that doesn't work, he can go back to the Pen and the Jay's can grab a guy like fister.

Pierce/ Carrera/ Upton


Better lineup than last year with addition of McCutchen. Will still not have enough to get first in the east but good enough for wildcard.

Since the Blue Jays are getting Bautista back and Mccutchen going to right, I don't see it happening.
The Blue Jays would not be willing to trade Stroman in my opinion.
And I see Mccutchen staying with Pittsburgh this year and then trading him at the deadline if they are out of it.

McCutchen isn't going to bring back Stroman. The Blue Jays wouldn't even give him up for Blackmon.

Cubbies I think he would bring back Stroman but the pirate's did say that they are getting back Vlad Jr. in any trade or it's a no go.

Yep its a no go, Vlad Jr is going no where. The trade isn't bad i feel the Jays should stick with what they have now. Pompey is a real interesting guy and i feel he can factor into the LF equation. The only thing i could see is a 6th starter/ swing man or a AAAA spot starter continued to be added.

Oh and sign Joe Blanton. How is this guys still on the market. Easy 7th/ 8th inning guy with Grilli.
