TORONTO - The Blue Jays have always dealt from a position of strength come trade time.

Be it moving Willie Upshaw to the Cleveland Indians to make room for Fred McGriff ... McGriff to San Diego to open a spot for John Olerud ... Jeff Kent to the New York Mets for David Cone with Kelly Gruber playing third ... or prospects a year ago for starting pitching.

So, now that the Jays need more starters for the year after their first “all-in” season since 1994, which part of their offence should the Jays consider trading?

Colby Rasmus? Which would leave centre field for Anthony Gose to roam? Or Jose Bautista? As Moises Sierra would take over to play right? Bautista would likely bring more in return, but would Edwin Encarnacion have as good a year without Bautista around?
