Kyle Seager
The lifetime Seattle Mariner, Kyle Seager has become a free agent after the club declined to pick up his $20 million option for 2022.  The 34-year old is coming off his second 30+ home run season and first 100+ RBI season but also had his highest strikeout season (161) and lowest batting average after posting a slash line of .212/.285/.438.

MLB Trade Rumors is predicting a contract in the range of two years at $24M.  I would be ok with a deal in this range, however, if he is looking for any deal more than three years may be better to stay away from Seager.

Kris Bryant
Maybe it is time for Kris Bryant to come full circle and join the team that originally drafted him in the 18th round of the 2010 MLB Draft.  Bryant declined to sign with the Blue Jays and decided to go the college route, which would later lead him to be drafted second overall in 2013.

Bryant is coming off a season that was split between the Chicago Cubs and San Francisco Giants.  He was selected to his fourth All-Star Game and finished the season with 32 doubles and 25 home runs.  MLB Trade Rumors predicted that Bryant would land a deal in the range of six years, $160M which likely prices him out of the Toronto market with how much money they are looking to spend and the recent Berrios extension, but would be nice to think about him in a Blue Jays uniform.

My choice would be to go big on the trade front and try to bring in Jose Ramirez, how about you?  What is your best solution for third base in 2022?
