Due to his current high value, it might be for the best to trade Andujar for a good starting pitcher, why not, while his value is at its highest now!!




You started this conversation  saying he was a joke at third base, now you're  saying he has high current value . That's  laughable. 




Yes, for his offense he's valuable, I can see another team in need of offense taking him in exchange for a starting pitcher, get it done Cashman!!




So you went from getting an "ace" to another team taking him for a"starting pitcher". Do you seriously think there are teams that would trade their ace or even a number 2  for Andujar straight up? This  isn't fantasy  baseball bud.

I think last year and this offseason only qwik and I wanted to trade Andujar in a package for a top line starting pitcher. At the beginning of the season I said defense and pitching were my biggest concern. Well all I heard was how we could deal with the bad D of an Andujar because of his greatr bat. He should have been dealt at least this offseason. His value is low now and unless he really starts to hit (and even if he does) he has much lower value then last year. Young kid with a bad shoulder that might force him to be a lifetime DH is not a good combo.

Forget Andujar for Banuelos, bad idea...  But Andujar for maybe Marcus Stroman??  The Jays could use offense for sure!!

I'll vouch that you did, indeed, say that.


If he's to be traded, he'll have value as a 1B if he continues to hit.

He'll  have value at 1B provided his defense is better than it is at 3B. At least at first he wouldn't  have to  throw across the diamond .

Converting from 3B to 1B isn't that big a deal. Obviously don't need to be as smooth, fielding & throwing. I'm pretty sure he can handle it.


Funny thing is...this time last year everyone was looking for a 1B who could hit. If Voit hadn't stepped up, I'd have no problem plugging Andujar in there.

Well, I might have been right with Andujar but I was wrong about Voit. I never thought being 27 he would maintain what he did last year. So far so good

I'm not sure. Right now he doesn't have good value at 1st because he's never played first. I think it would take a non contender looking to build to take a shot on him as a 1st baseman. Team is going to have to gamble that his shoulder will hold up. 


Boy do I dislike him at 3rd

Seriously ,  take your meds. You want a pitcher who is 5-13 the last  2 years? You kill Happ and Paxton every bad outing  but you want Stroman?
