So, Kim goes to SD, as does Snell and Darvish - glad the Jays aren't in that division. All other NL West teams should look at doing a dump and run. So now what?

Jays clearly are after an infielder - ideally a star level one or a very young one with potential for that.  Young potential stars are normally impossible to trade for so lets look at what is possible...
Hopefully this thread will be out of date quickly and the Jays get one or more of these players so we have something to really talk about.  Who would you give up in a trade among the Jays top 5 prospects?  How many would you give up for Lindor (assuming he signs an extension)?  For Story (same condition)?  Would you give up anything of value for Arenado?  How much for each of the prized free agents?  I'd go to 3 years for Turner knowing the 3rd year is a likely write off (I figure he could move to DH/1B if needed or be a backup 3B/1B/DH in year 3).  $125 for Springer or Realmuto, $100 for LeMathieu?  It will be interesting to see what happens with Sugano (should be the next to sign) and Tanaka (since the Yankees are ignoring him it seems based on various sites) either of whom would be nice #2's.
