2016-12-02 13:00:00 (link to chat)What would be an equivalent prospect haul from the Jays or Orioles for Jay Bruce (compared to what the Mets gave up for him)? Think the mMets can do better than that?
(Chad from NY)
Pompey has been sort of linked to a deal insofar as the Jays have been shopping him. That is actually a really good Herrera fit right down to the not-a-prospect but still sort of a prospect thing. I guess the arm flyer would be like Jose Espada or something. That seems heavy to me, but it seems the industry values Bruce more than I do.

O's are harder to find a fit, because you end up with like Schoop or Mountcastle, which doesn't seem like a fit and it seems like too much. Maybe like Reyes/Liranzo? That still feels heavy. It's Jay Bruce. (Jeffrey Paternostro)
