    Blue Jays get a future DH/1B in Naylor and 3 good young pitcher with decent to high ceilings in Quantrill, Baez and Bolanos and in return eat 1/2 of Myers’s contract and give Giles to San Diego. The Padres want to get as much of Myers’s contract off the books as possible this offseason to have extra cash to pursue SPs and better OFs, and Giles would just be a cherry on top of that. They would be willing to deal Naylor because he doesn’t fit anywhere on the team despite his offensive upside, and they’d be willing to deal Quantrill, Baez, and Bolanos because they have a huge overstock in young pitching, something Toronto could use more of to compliment their good young core in Vlad Jr., Bo Bichette, Cavan Biggio, and Danny Jansen. Naylor, Baez, and Quantrill are all former Top 100 Prospects.

      Very interesting proposal. Toronto has shown a willingness to eat money to achieve other goals (they did so with Tulowitzski, Martin and Morales), so this isn’t crazy. They do need pitching, so this checks that box as well.

      Nice job. You should come here more often!

        Toronto has also been on the other side of this type of deal, giving away Reese McGuire to unload the contract of Francisco Liriano. Not sure if that works for or against this suggestion.

          I think it’s a point in favor. As I mention above, the Jays have recently shown a willingness to cover bad money in the pursuit of larger goals.
