Those numbers werenít in the Mirtle article.

Nope. He only talks about discussions with contracts at those lengths, not the AAV.

No. Iím questioning why you would trade Sanchez at his absolute lowest value. There was no rush. Let him pitch another year see if he gets back on track. They had nothing to lose.

While Iím by no means saying this was a good trade, itís extremely unlikely, with his track record of injuries and control issues that Sanchez rebounds enough to be more valuable as a two month rental than he had as a player with another season of team control.

Umm the jays just traded Sanchez and Biagini to Houston for ... pretty much nothing.

Has Atkins made 1 impactful trade? Anything? This is ridiculous

Has the full return been announced anywhere yet? All I can see is Derek Fisher and speculation other players that haven't been informed yet.

Did Tampa just walk away with ~$2M in cap space and a player who can play?

Condon can't and won't play... he's 4th on their goalie depth chart and probably would have a hard time getting a league minimum salary from someone if he was a free agent.

And Tampa doesn't really gain cap space, they just get access to it sooner. Callahan would have been placed LTIR when the season started. What they really gained was flexibility.

Huh. Well, that's two of their top pitching prospects anyway, not much in the way of top prospects list stuff.

Yeah. Not an overwhelming return, but two guys with solid MLB potential.

If thatís the entire return, itís not great, but possibly not awful either.

You still have to be sure of your current core and prospect pipeline before committing to UFA stars.

Yup. Jumping the gun on adding expensive pieces before your youth have shown anything is a good way to get stuck as a middle of the pack at best team.

It may be nothing but I'm a little suspicious of the fact that the trade was basically reported an hour ago and there's still nothing emerging about what the trade was beyond Stroman.

Also, the Mets being buyers doesn't make a ton of sense.

Eric Sogard has been traded to Tampa, no word yet on what the Jays got in return.

This should free up a spot for Bo Bichette on the Jays roster.

Return is two players to be named later, per TSN

Nylander is good.

Nylander is great.

We surrender our will, as of this date.

Next to 0 scoring pop though.

Nope, and that's probably the only reason Edmonton will finish ahead of them. That being said, if Ottawa gets reasonable goaltending this season, they're not going to get embarrassed nearly as frequently as I imagine the Oilers will. They're going to make teams work a lot harder to beat them than people expect for what will likely be a last place team.

Even that 2nd line has to be among the worst 2nd lines in the league.

Yeah. It's not great, but all three guys on it have at least one 20+ goal season . . .  :-X

In all seriousness, I think the combination of RNH and Neal could make for a perfectly reasonable 2nd line, assuming Neal bounces back some. It's not a good 2nd line, but it's not a terrible one, either. Probably in the lower third of the league, but not at the bottom of the barrel.

Ottawa might actually have better depth than Edmonton. :o

Man, those bottom two lines are going to get eaten alive. Just absolutely destroyed.
