07:20 AM ET 11.14 | What a difference a year makes in Toronto. Unlike last year, when the Blue Jays left the GM meetings in Palm Springs, Calif., with the rough framework of the Miami Marlins blockbuster in place and seeds planted for the subsequent R.A. Dickey deal, the transactions everyone is so eagerly awaiting now may be a while in coming. ... On the trade front, the Blue Jays are expected to make a push for Chicago Cubs starter Jeff Samardzija and they have inquired about available catcher Ryan Hanigan, whom the Cincinnati Reds are said to be moving slowly on. Like many teams, the Blue Jays are also believed to have kicked around a run at backstop Jason Castro of the Houston Astros, but their GM Jeff Luhnow told MLB.com that, "I really don't have a lot of interest in exploring" a trade for the all-star.

All-star by default as at least one has to be chosen from each major league team.

Do the Jays have a mediocre pitcher coming off arm surgery that they could trade along with some flawed Class A trinkets to the Cubbies for Samardzija?
