So they traded 3 "stars" for 3 of their top 10 and a few random pieces

You're ignoring the salary of the players. They're 3 stars getting paid like 3 stars. Stanton gets paid the same amount as Steve Tolleson.

If the Jays were really smart, they could have had these players for free. Most of them were available last offseason as FA. :D

For the "I won't trade Bundy for a zillion dollars crowd"...

You realize Stanton is under control for 4 more years and put up a .970 OPS last season right? You're pretty much banking on Bundy to be Justin Verlander if you think he's going to be as valuable as Stanton.

I know it's a sss, but I wasn't impressed by Bundy's stuff when he was called up. Not sure if he was tired or what, but I was under the impression Bundy threw in the mid to upper 90's. I saw alot of 91-92.

I won't even pretend to know what I'm looking for when evaluating a young pitcher. All I know is, the chances of Bundy being mediocre or a bust far outweigh the chances he'll be as valuable as Mike Stanton. He'd have to be Elite. Furthermore, few pitchers reach that level until 2-3 years in the big leagues. Stanton, meanwhile, is already there and only improving.

    • I love that we have so many young assets like the OP mentioned. My issue with this framework is that we still need to add a big piece or 2 to add to the core if we are going to contend for a World Series. I don’t see this roster even with all of the young adds next year being able to beat Houston, Seattle, Toronto, Dodgers, Braves, Mets next year in a short series. Don’t get me wrong I am VERY excited to have so many young promising players. But I hope there is a plan to add to this in order to compete for a championship.
    • I'm surprised to hear this from you.  I assume you're inferring how the FO feels?
    • Mountcastle has a long swing and at times swings at just about everything. I don’t think he’s anymore than a mediocre player with an occasional hot streak.
    • At first I didn’t care if Judge got to 62. Now I hope he’s stuck on 61 for the season.    The crying by Yankees fans about how we didn’t groove one so Judge can have the record #%^%#. I’m counting down, 2 games left, I hope Texas walks him 8 times.
    • I agree if we had a stud on the other side that could actually get home. But we don’t, we now have two geriatric NFL players, a guy trying to return from a serious injury, and a rookie that will try to make the jump to the NFL after suffering a serious injury doing draft drills. Man we have a great plan! I swear, you or I could done better than this bunch. Bisciotti needs to fire the whole bunch. They’ve outstayed their value. 
    • Same issue Clowney has.  But pressures and hurries make are still very valuable.
    • I guess it depends on if you think this year or last year is the Real Mountcastle. Last year’s numbers have him as borderline top 10 at the position. I think he’ll be closer to last year and could pop higher year to year. Top 10 1B with elite Catcher and SS/3B and you’ve got a good foundation.
