    Default Josh Donaldson traded to Cleveland

    https://www.sportsnet.ca/baseball/ml...ldson-indians/

    The Blue Jays have agreed to trade the third baseman to the Cleveland Indians. The trade was first reported by Jeff Passan of Yahoo Sports.

    I'm just glad the Yankees or Red Sox missed him. His last two seasons with the Jays have been riddled with injuries. A great player when healthy but at least the Jays got something for him. I doubt he was coming back next season even if he was healthy.

    He would have come back if they had given him a QO. He wouldn't have had anything to lose really. Really poor asset management here IMO.

    Of course he would but he isn't worth the $18M it would cost the Jays to qualify him and cleary, at this point, with the season he's had, $18M would be a great contract for Donaldson and a terrible contract for the Jays. They are already sucking up Tulo (2 yrs left) and Martin's (1 more year) terrible contracts and dont want a 3rd one on their books next year.

    I hate seeing Donaldson traded for pennies but that's where his value vs contract sits. The emotional attachment is great for all Jays fans but the business side of things kick in here and you have to remove emotion when dealing with dollars.

    Totally agree. Horrible asset management. Another example of how these two clowns are going to run this team into a pergatory of mediocrity. Get rid of the Prez/GM.

    Everyone is talking like they know who the Jays are getting back. Do you? I thought it was a player to be named later....but yeah, he better be a very good piece for the future, otherwise, yikes.

    Yeah, from what I've seen it's a PTBNL. It would make sense for Cleveland if they gave the Jays a few different options, depending on how many games/ABs Donaldon gets for them. I would be curious to know if the full details of the trade would ever get released after the trade is completed.

    No one knows yet, and you can bet no one will like the return. That's the way it works but I find in baseball, even the darkest of horses make the big leagues so I won't pass judgement on a name I don't recognize today.

    Right you are. And hopefully this is the case, but even a slight hit on an unknown doesn’t excuse the laughable asset management.

    No argument from me. As I shared in the Blue Jays thread, he should have been dealt two years ago but they were too worried about selling season tickets.

    Atkins/Shapiro know who the player is coming back.. In an interview last night Atkins says for contractual reasons they can't release the name but that fans will soon realize who it is.. He also said fans will like the return as this player will fit right in with Vlad, Beau, and Biggio..

    Also interesting, Atkins said we are going to probably have two more down years but year 3 is when he hopes to compete with the likes of Boston and New York..

    If there's any bonus at all to dealing with Cleveland, Atkins/Shapiro know their prospects well because they probably scouted and drafted them.

    This is a good point, they need to get someone that will be able to start for them in the next 2-3 years and they should know the Cleveland system. Hopefully the farther Cleveland goes the prospect gets conditionaly better.
