The Toronto Blue Jays need to make a trade.
Whether or not they should make the trade today, tomorrow or 12 months from now is the million dollar question.
Either way, the team has several significant needs in their lineup.
On opening day 2012, it was clear that the Jays needed another consistent starter and a solution at first base. Whether those holes would be filled internally or externally was still up in the air. The bullpen was a question mark but never a very large one.
Now, it's certainly clear that the team still needs another starter. Kyle Drabek and Henderson Alvarez are here to stay, but Drew Hutchison—in spite of his recent success—looks like he needs more time in the minors.
It's also clear that they need a real, concrete solution at first base.
Adam Lind may be back in the majors at some point in 2012, but fans are right to be confused at the direction the organization is taking with regard to their long-term plan at first.
With those needs in mind, here's a look at potential trade options at first base.
