A few questions this raises:

  • Could this be a precursor to an Asdrubal trade?
  • Is Gomes already at the top of our 1B depth chart?
  • Over/Under on days until LaPorta DFA?
  • Not a question, but obviously the FO shares my opinion that Esmil would not do well with a move back to the rotation.
  • Did Toronto acquire Aviles knowing we had interest?
