Would you give up Doolittle, Soto, Fedde and Raudy Reed for Manny Machado? Or one year of Kris Bryant?
That’s the equivalent of the trade you are proposing.

No, it's not.  The player and prospects in the Blue Jays package are well better than that package (irrespective of the numerical rank), except Soto - who just missed 3/4 of the season in low-A - and the Blue Jays are far worse going into the trade than the Nats are - they're not even arguably one superstar away from serious championship contention.   His proposal is far worse for Toronto than those would be for the Nats.  I'd at least have a brief thought about the packages you've proposed if I were the Nats
