Reports are that Cleveland is definitely going to trade Francisco Lindor with the Jays as a possible interested party. I'd trade just about any Jay prospect not named Austin Martin for him.

Move Biggio to 3B, Bichette to 2B, Vladdy at 1B and move Martin permanently to LF or CF and that's a crazy good young lineup where you can still insert bats at DH and the corner outfield spots.

Not someone I was super excited to see return but at that price there's no real downside and there's a chance he finds his old form.

Agreed. If they can help him find the strike zone more reliably, he?d be a good back of the rotation starter.

I remember they did that with Juan Guzman back in the day. But different coaches, different era.

Can they send Roark to Robidas Island?

Borders are closed.

Just send him on a flight. For some reason there are plenty of flights to usa/abroad, but you can't drive...

You can only get there by water.

If the Jays eat a fair amount of his contract I think Roark might have some decent value to a bottom end team looking for an innings eater, provided last year was a bit of a fluke. Maybe a middling grade prospect or so or a bullpen arm.

As much as I would love to have the defensive upgrade of Lindor at SS, I'm worried the price will be something that isn't really worth the move.

With an extension in place, it might be. But, if he's not willing to sign on long-term, I agree. He's still young and he's an excellent all around player, but, to justify the asset cost, he'd have to be signed for at least 5 more seasons, I would think.
