J. A Happ to thr Yankees for Abreu and McKinney.


1.) 26 Jul 2018 22:19:41
Pretty close. The Yankees pretty much stole Happ.

Drury is hot garbage and likely a DFA candidate this time next year.



21 Jan 2018 18:58:19
Just for fun guys. This site has been quiet.

Jays trade Pillar and Donaldson to the Cards for Ozuna. ( Cards resign Donaldson)

Start a conversation Chi Sox. My kid says bahahaha.

What part is not fair? Thought it might be close.

3.) 22 Jan 2018 03:05:12
The Cardinals didn't trade for Ozuna just to move him for a worse OF. And they still have plenty of young talent that they could just make a separate trade for Donaldson.

4.) 22 Jan 2018 03:54:06
I Know, I mentioned that in another post. I realize Ozuna is much better, Offensively anyway. Pillar atleast could fill in nicely.

The Cards have been all over Donaldson this Winter. I think the Cards would make that trade if the free agent outfield supply was good.

The Jays cannot compete for post season this year so Donaldson should be traded. Probably at the deadline now. I think if he was going to resign, it would have happened already.

5.) 22 Jan 2018 15:07:19
And if Toronto is going to trade some of their best prospects to get a Yelich and Realmuto package in an attempt to compete in the AL East, why would they trade their ace?

6.) 22 Jan 2018 23:03:25
This would not be a trade for this year but for the next few.

Guerrero might be up next year and a bunch of free agent are avaiable. Jays have a declining payroll as well with lots of cash to spend.

Stroman is one of the best young pitchers in the game but I betcha the Marlins would want him plus Bichette and Alford.



14 Dec 2017 23:28:16
I know the cards didn't trade for Ozuna just to trade him again but how about this trade with the Jays

Ozuna and prospects Kelly and flaherty

Donaldson and Pillar.


1.) 17 Dec 2017 01:43:19
Nope. They ain't trading Ozuna for a rental. Even if it's Donaldson, no way Cards do that.



03 Jul 2017 17:34:03
Jays trade Donaldson to Yankees for prospects Kaprelian and Mateo.

JD would help Yankees with their playoff push and these 2 prospects would start the rebuild.

Jays will probably be losing JD as a free agent after 2018 season anyway.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 18:34:59
Considering Kaprelian is out for the season with TJ surgery the Blue Jays may want another piece.

2.) 03 Jul 2017 19:18:55
Yes I know he is out with TJ.

Donaldson would probably get a better package in the off season assuming he starts playing up to his capabilities in the 2nd half. But he will be that much closer to being a free agent and their is no guarantee that he turns it around. So it's hard to say.

They do need to trade him though or they'll lose him for nothing. The Yankees seem like a good fit.

What do you think the return could be?

3.) 03 Jul 2017 19:56:43
I would say add in Adams or Sheffield or a rising prospect in Estevan Florial. I also must say good improvement on your posts since last year.

4.) 03 Jul 2017 20:27:23
Thanks but I don't think my posts were all that bad, but we don't need to get into that.

5.) 04 Jul 2017 03:34:22
If the Jays were smart, they'd create a bidding war between the Red Sox, Yankees, and perhaps Orioles (move Machado to SS) for the services of Donaldson.

6.) 04 Jul 2017 18:18:44
I agree.

7.) 05 Jul 2017 16:47:20
NYM send:
Duda (yanks need a 1b) - he's sign with yanks on offseason
Reed (yanks need pen depth)
Grandy (yanks can use depth with their injuries in OF and at DH)

Yanks send:
Chance Adams
A. Romine
A. Hicks.

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.



1.) 13 Feb 2017 12:59:34
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.

2.) 13 Feb 2017 19:11:18
McCutchen isn't going to bring back Stroman. The Blue Jays wouldn't even give him up for Blackmon.

3.) 13 Feb 2017 21:10:18
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.

4.) 14 Feb 2017 04:03:43
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.

5.) 14 Feb 2017 04:06:40
Oh and sign Joe Blanton. How is this guys still on the market. Easy 7th/ 8th inning guy with Grilli.

6.) 15 Feb 2017 02:05:11
Wants to stay west coast on multi year but the dodgers won't give.

Great trade for the Rays. Archer is not the same pitcher he used to be.


1.) 01 Aug 2018 14:01:53
I never thought he was that great to begin with, a bit over hyped.



27 Jul 2018 04:24:17
Just looking for opinions on the current playoff format and ways to improve. Letting more teams in like 6 or 8 etc. Or leave it as is?


1.) 30 Jul 2018 22:42:55
Here's what I think is going to happen within the next 10 years. The league will expand to 32 teams, probably eliminating interleague play. Instead of 3 divisions in each league there will be 4, consisting of 4 teams each. that's four division winners and as for the Wild card it should stay at 2 per league. 6 playoff teams per league. The Wild Card game needs to expand to a best 2 out of 3.

2.) 31 Jul 2018 01:17:48
There's been a lot of interest, it seems, if the league goes to 32-teams, to four 8-team divisions.

If such is the case, expand to six teams in each league (top 3 from each division), eliminating the "Wild Card" round. Format just like the NFL playoffs, with a 3-5-7-7 series breakdown.

That would be my ideal situation.

3.) 31 Jul 2018 02:14:58
The one problem I see with that format is after the wild card team has won, they will have 5 teams. I do agree with making wild card best of 3.

I think they should do top 8 in each league. Two wild card teams play top two teams. (Seeded)

First two rounds best of 5. 2 games at one field then 3 at the other. This eliminates one travel day.

LCS and WS best of 7.

Adding 2 best of 5 rounds should only add a couple of weeks on.

Reduce season schedule by this much to end things around the same time.

I know the league will lose revenue which is why it will probsbly never happen but some of those stadiums will have a lot more people in them in August/ September with many teams chasing a spot.

This really is a no brainer to me but I am maybe missing some things?

4.) 31 Jul 2018 14:41:35
You brought up a good point as the wild card game would result in 5 teams left. So what they could do is 8 teams per league. 4 division winners and 4 wild cards. The Wild card series I still think should be a 3 game series, but needs to be played within 4 days. We don't want the postseason going into mid November. So they could also start the season a few weeks earlier, or have scheduled double headers and giving out more off days.



26 Jul 2018 20:30:35
Not a big fan of Happ trade to Yankees. McKinney might be ok down the road but Drury is average at best and another third baseman the Jays don't need. Yanks won trade by far.


1.) 26 Jul 2018 22:22:38
McKinney is worse than Hernandez, Alford, Pompey, Grichuk, Pillar. At 24, I'm not sure where he finds the playing time in that roster.

Drury and his 50 wRC+ is absolutely putrid. He's a classic AAAA player.

Maybe the market for Happ wasn't strong, but they probably could have received more elsewhere for him. If they were aiming for Drury, their entire front office should be fired.

2.) 26 Jul 2018 22:49:46
Geez I didn't realize he was 24 already. Yeah definitely could of got a better deal.

Atleast go for a pitching prospect.



17 Jun 2018 14:33:34
Any opinions on where Donaldson and Happ may end up at the deadline?


1.) 19 Jun 2018 14:28:26
Donaldson I'd say Atlanta or St. Louis. Happ Yankees, Seattle, Phillies.

2.) 27 Jun 2018 01:53:59
Donaldson will remain on the DL at the deadline, watching his 2019 salary drop a million dollars per week.

3.) 29 Jun 2018 15:50:11
He'll probably get traded in August for not much more then the 2nd round pick they'll receive.

I still think he gets 20 mil a year with a lesser term. Lots of big money will be flying around this off season.

4.) 30 Jun 2018 06:46:25
He'll be 33 in December and his health has all but deteriorated. For the life of me, I cannot even think of a team that might consider giving him 20M a year. Any GM who gives him 15M a year at this point should immediately be fired.

There will be 2 players who will receive ungodly salaries (I don't think Kershaw opts out) and I think the rest will receive very modest figures, maybe even another low year.



20 Nov 2016 01:03:03
with the news the White Sox are cleaning house. Do you think the Jays should go after Melky Cabrera?

He is still very productive, switch hitter and not to worried about his defence with Pillar in center.

He shouldn't cost too much with only one year left on his contract.

Any opinions?


1.) 20 Nov 2016 21:48:58
Personally I think they should go after his teammate Adam Eaton.

2.) 20 Nov 2016 22:41:03
I agree like most others. Eaton will cost some prospects that I don't think the Jays want to give up though. So I'm trying to be realistic on what will help them next year that won't cost alot.
If Jays want Eaton, the Sox want Stroman +.

3.) 21 Nov 2016 02:12:00
LOL Eaton is not worth Stro plus.

4.) 21 Nov 2016 06:37:54
Sox don't need to trade Eaton. They would have all the leverage in that trade. Jays would add a prospect with Stroman.

5.) 21 Nov 2016 08:43:16
No they wouldn't. If the Sox want Stroman for Eaton then the Jays can just look to another team for an outfielder and not be stupid and trade away their ace.

6.) 21 Nov 2016 11:03:17
Stroman is not the Jays Ace. lol.

Sanchez is the Ace then Happ and Estrada.

I'm telling you if the Jays want a young controllable outfielder that especially bats left and will lead off- Stroman will be part of the deal.

7.) 21 Nov 2016 13:41:25
a controllable outfielder worth 9.7 war over past 2 seasons is worth more than stroman. considerably more.

8.) 21 Nov 2016 18:46:01
baseballfanatic-are you Jerk?

Haven't heard from him in awhile.

9.) 21 Nov 2016 20:30:55
Well, he is probably worth Stroman+ but I don't the Jays would part ways with Stroman for Eaton.

10.) 21 Nov 2016 23:04:37
im not the jerk. don't know him. i saw one post of his when i first joined, not a very nice guy.

One can't disagree with Betts but it would be interesting to see where the Bosox would be without JD Martinez.

2nd in BA
1st in hits
1st in HR
1st in RBI

Can you think of any prior player with those rankings not to win MVP.

But yes Betts will win it.

Also, I think Scherzer deserves it.

The more I think about it. The Jays are 3 years away from contending again. Stroman will be 30. Maybe its best to grab a couple top 100 pitching prospects and hope they pan out. The Braves are a good match.

Wouldn't make sense for the Jays. He is finally healthy and pitching up to his standards.

If sure looks like this is the start of a re-build that should of happened last off season.

Stroman should be part of the future when the young guns are ready to come up.

O's will want a better prospect and they don't want Ellsbury.
