Let’s play GM here ….
Go ahead and say the clock reads July 15, 2011 (a couple weeks before the trade deadline) and the Jays are currently where they are now (as of this writing) — 3.5 games back in the AL East, but trailing multiple teams.
What moves are you making to shore up the Jays roster heading into a playoff run?
What are the biggest concerns needing to be addressed?
What do you see a Jays playoff roster even looking like?
At that point, is it pretty obvious that Brett Lawrie must be up here, if the 3B fiasco still hasn’t sorted itself out?
What do you think is worthy of mortgaging on the farm for that type of chance to make the playoffs? What kidn of prospects previously considered “untouchable” (to a fan) might at that point become touchable?
Hoping to hear some feedback from our
thousands, hundreds, dozens of readers. What would you do if you were AA in that scenario?
