What should the Blue Jays do with Jose Bautista?
Tue, July 27, 2010

CHRIS TOMAN, Sports Network

It's safe to say Toronto Blue Jays General Manager Alex Anthopoulos had no idea heading into this year that he would have to make an important mid-season decision involving Jose Bautista.

With the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline just days away, Anthopoulos will be tempted by many teams to surrender his breakout star.

What should the Jays do with Bautista? Have your say in our forum.

Trade away Bautista?

Definitely keep Jose,we finally have a star player and we want to get rid of him.That is what has kept the Jays where they are,trading away their talent.He's a leader and he makes the over paid Well's the one who should be traded,if anyone would want him.

I think the Blue Jays will have a really good team in about 2 or 3 years. They have some really good talent in the minors - pitchers Kyle Drabek and Zach Stewart, who could be up with the Blue Jays next year. They also have some other good prospects.

Just wait till 2012 or 2013 - they will be a contending team.

I'm sick and tired of the talk about rebuilding - is that what's been going on for the last 17 years? The "powers that be" in T.O. are selling false hope to their fans. Until MLB introduces a hard cap or Rogers is willing to start spending (I prefer the cap myself), the Jays will continue trading away their top talent for prospects and draft picks in perpetuity, only to see them too depart to one of the big spending teams if and when they become stars.

Take a look at all of the ex-Jays still playing and consider where the Jays would be in the standings today if they had retained some of these stars (e.g. Doc, Jason Werth, et al).

If you get blown away with an offer then go for it. Otherwise savour this year and next. His arm and his power numbers are the best in the league now.

shure...let's go another decade without a chance to win. Keep Bautista, Buck and build around them..give us a chance to at least hope for the present and build for the future around them

absolutely. You have to trade him. He is a free agent that will want a hefty pay raise next year, that combined with a crowded outfield, Wells, Snider, Lewis and up and coming star in Wallace means there would only be a DH spot assuming Lind moves to 1B. Trade him and get better long term. Take the Dominic Brown from Philly and another blue chip, They are certainly players you never would have thought you could get for Bautista when he was originally signed.

Keep him in place for next year. He has a cannon for an arm from RF and is a great hitter to have in the middle of the order. Youth movement or not, you have to have a couple vets around for leadership.

Not unless they get a stud and some 2nd rate players! The youth movement of the jays for the future should not influence a great player which is not ultra expensive and is not a fluke.
Keith Sanga, 2010-07-27 17:30:04

Trade him his value will never be higher. He's also having a career year.
