Not remotely worth giving up Gose.

As an aside, Bonifacio's defence is much better in the outfield than the infield. Izturis, meanwhile, is a much better defender at 2B, and judging by his home/away splits, his offensive production should improve at the Rogers Centre. So they can very comfortably go into spring training with Izturis earmarked for 2B, and Bonifacio in LF. If they want to upgrade either position, it had better not come at the expense of a top prospect like Gose.
Agree with these two. No trading Gose for a rental. Jays can't get crazy now.
