    He belonged on the farm, and would have been a September Call up, if the injury prone Jays had not happened. He needs a full year in Buffalo to bring him to MLB ready.

    Note your constructive criticism.

    If I'm the Rays, I'm asking for Lawrie and D'Arnaud at least to start.

    No, I'd swap him to a 3rd team if I'm the Rays

    Brett Lawrie is probably one of the top 5 most untouchable players in baseball right now.

    Mostly because he is Canadian. Well that plus he is a hell of a ballplayer with some great potential. But yea the fact that he is Canadian is huge. Just look at the impact it had last year.

    When your asking a division rival to trade arguably the best pitcher in all of baseball whose still in his prime and controllable for 3 years, there should be no untouchable players

    There is no way no how they trade Price to a team in our division. They could get as good a return from some of the other 26 teams.

    But if they do and its not us, ..........I will eat Krylian ..........I mean crow.

    I can't think of one other pitcher to ever to command a package as valuable as Lawrie and TDA.

    David Price is great but let's not lose our minds here.

    If anyone else can think of a package for an established "ace" that actually occurred and beats that package, please feel free to speak up.

    I don't know of too many aces in their prime and controllable for 3 years ever even potentially being available on the market.

    I mean the Halladay trade netted a pretty good package (at the time) and he was a year away from free agency, made it pretty much known that he wanted to be traded and was entering the declining phase of career.

    None of those seem to apply with Price so I don't see why it would be unreasonable for the Rays to get a least that given the dearth of starting pitching currently available on the market and the price in $

    Let's be real here. He didn't have the greatest year in his first full season He has loads of potential, but let's face it, it's not like he played like Mike Trout or Buster Posey.

    I'd say top 30. I think he was actually a bit higher than that on Jonah Keri's trade value list that was published the other day. I get where the other poster is coming from with the top 5 thing though, even if that is a bit much. As silly as it is to overrate players because of their passport, there is no denying that that does add to his value for the Jays specifically.
