LAKE BUENA VISTA, FLA. - The deals are there.

The Blue Jays can make them — for either a starting pitcher or a position player — if they chose to take one step forward for improvement and one giant leap for 2014.

“We have some things we can do, things we can say yes to,” Jays general manager Alex Anthopoulos told reporters Wednesday afternoon at the 112th winter meetings at the Disney Swan Resort.

And he was not talking about a sign-and-retire player like Jimmy Key, as Roy Halladay did Monday.

“But the acquisition price doesn’t work for us right now,” he said. “I don’t know if I could quantify how far off that they might be.

“We continue to have dialogue, so if you want to look at that as encouraging, I don’t know. It’s not so far out of the realm that we won’t continue to have talks.”

Anthopoulos said “no one is untradeable,” when asked about reports that the Jays were offering centre-fielder Colby Rasmus to obtain starting pitching.
