It was announced yesterday that the Blue Jays and Mariners had engaged in trade talks involving Michael Pineda for Brett Lawrie. As we all know by now, Pineda was dealt to the New York Yankees for Jesus Montero. But, it is interesting that Blue Jays GM Alex Anthopolous entertained the trade offer.

Who would you rather have on your fantasy team in 2012: Jesus Montero or Brett Lawrie?

I think I would prefer Lawrie because i am a sucker for power/speed threats, and Lawrie has a solid bat as well, so he won't hurt you in batting average. Montero will be playing in a pitchers park, so there is a chance he struggles in the power categories intially.
