It's too late in my opinion. A trade of Thor or deGrom for a big name position player might help. Those types of deals are rare

If it was still the norm to trade players for money rather than other players (like the Babe Ruth deal), how much would Trout go for?

Last question, and I'll need a minute...
1:31
So he costs $119MM
1:33
I'm estimating his on field value at $240MM including a lot of regression for decline/injury. Could easily exceed $300MM.
And I have no methodology for estimating marketing value
Let's just call that $150MM
1:34
So something like $120MM to $180MM for pure baseball bliss plus however much you value his brand value

Thanks for the long chat! You haven't directly answered any of my questions, but someone else has asked them as well pretty much verbatim so I am happy. Apparently I'm unoriginal and this chat has multiple Jays fans.

glad it worked out. We had a lot of people in here asking questions
I assume Eno returns next week. The chat transcript will be up posthaste.
I bid you all adieu
