This time he counsels the Blue Jays Alex Anthopoulos to sale his veterans. He thinks the Pirates would make a good home for any combination of these three players: Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion or R.A. Dickey. I suppose Bowden wants the Pirates to sale the farm for these players.
Two aging righthanded batters and one old knuckleballer do not make for a worthy return on any of the players it would take to get them. They would be great if they were free. But they'll cost the Pirates dearly.
And that was Bowden's point: The Jays should rebuild by trading veterans for prospects.
Once more: Pass.
