    Maybe only Bo I would try to hold onto in trade. Anything else would be on the block for him.

He said that his agent spoke to Blue Jays again, who still werent willing to up their offer.. . He said he thought that he had done well as a Blue Jay and enjoyed his time with them and appreciated the fans and players support. He says he feels he is primed for a breakout as he has learned to not just throw hard and go for the Strikeout, and to rely on the mix of his pitches, which he was working on last year

    I found it interesting because players rarely speak about contract negotiations and the teams that they have talked to. Usually its that who ever they sign with, was where they wanted to be all along, and you know that is usually just teamspeak. It was refreshing to hear a player talk about his personal process as a free agent. It makes you understand that these are flesh and blood human beings who worry about finding a place to ply their trade in these uncertain times.
    do you have a source for this?

    Trout for Springer, Grich and specs next year, get er done. Now that's a player I'd trade Pearson+ for.

    What if they simply wanted Kirk for trout and demanded we pitch Pearson as a starter for 3 years? Reed worst nightmare

    Doesn't he have a no trade clause? He'll end up going where he wants if that's the case. Maybe Dodgers or Yankees/Mets.

    Hed have 5/10 rights this year I think. Not sure about the NTC.

    Ah thanks.

    I think they'll sneak in this year and will be getting a prime FA this offseason once Pujols comes off the books.

    Allows them to play Ohtani more and could get a good pitcher next year.

    They need to do a better jobs with their farm though so they can make more trades that help Trout.

    For sure. And I think using Ohtani on both sides actually hurts the team.

    I think it does as well but he's still more valuable in that role than not having him at all. That was the demand you needed to concede to in order to get him so I can live with it, especially since they are desparate for pitching. Maybe in a few years he can be a full time hitter or pitcher.

    Morosi was on with Mike Z other day. Said at deadline Cubs and Jay's could be good trade partners. Jay's move either Groshans or Martin for Kyle H and Bryant be good trade.

    I'd prefer a young controllable stud pitcher - Marquez, Castillo, Woodruff....etc instead of ageing vets

    Same, also don't like those prospects included with Bryant on an expiring deal.
