Anybody think this is plausible?

Trade LHP Jon Neise, 2B/3B Wilmer Flores, 1B Ike Davis, C Kevin Plawecki to Toronto for 1B Edwin Encarnacion

Toronto still reportedly is in win now mode. They desperately need starting pitching have liked Neise, whose under team control until 2018, for years now. If they were to let Adam Lind go, Flores would serve as a quality DH while being able to provide insurance for the injury prone Lawrie and give Ryan Goins a breather at second if need be. Heck, if he hits he can even start at 2B and have Goins come in as a late defensive replacement. Also, if this deal were to be made, they would need a first baseman. The ball flies out of Rogers Centre and with Ike's big time power, perhaps they would take a chance on him. JP Arencibia was flat out awful last season hitting under .200 in 138 games last season. A little internal catching depth could go a long way for Toronto in case Arencibia loses it. A starting 5 of Dickey, Buehrle, Morrow, Neise, and Happ would be pretty nice to have, especially with top pitching prospects Aaron Sanchez and Marcus Stroman quickly on the rise.

Sign Granderson 4yrs/65MM

Sign Peralta 3yrs/$40 MM

Trade 1B Lucas Duda, RHP Michael Fulmer to Milwaukee for OF Nori Aoki

Doug Melvin has repeatedly stated he is looking for 1st base depth, speciifcally a left handed hitting 1B. Fulmer to me reminds me a lot of Trevor Cahill, nothing too special. Aoki would be a great cost effective leadoff hitter for us and hopefully would be able to provide a bridge for the arrival of the dynamic Cesar Puello.

Our lineup:

RF: Aoki LHB

2B: Murphy LHB

3B: Wright RHB

1B: Encarnacion RHB

LF: Granderson LHB

SS: Peralta RHB

C: d'Arnaud RHB

CF: Lagares RHB

Our rotation:

RHP: Wheeler

RHP: Gee

RHP: Mejia

4: FA

5: FA

Depth: Montero, Syndergaard, Torres


- $5MM (Neise)

- $3.5MM (Davis)

-$500K (Flores)

- $1.8MM (Duda)

+ $9MM (Encarnacion)

+ $15.5MM (Granderson)

+ $13.33 MM (Peralta)

+ $1.95MM (Aoki)

Total: $28.98MM
