    So your issue with my bringing up Rogers is that he's pitched in 14 innings? If it's not ok to judge him by 14 good innings, then why should we judge Reimold for 35 bad plate appearances?

    Because...

    People weren't overly concerned when the Jays let Esmil Rogers go either, and he's dominated for the Yanks. Sub 2.50 ERA, striking out a batter an inning. The Jays gave him away for nothing too.

    Yeah, they're usually 4-5 WAR players. You make it sound like it's average or not that special.



    You realize he's 21 years old and most guys his age are in AA, right? Those are FANTASTIC...

    Machado is a 21 year old SS putting up league average offence with plus defence. You know his range/arm is spectacular given how he's translated his plus plus D to 3B

    Let's not call that guy...

    Evaluating Pillar for one extra week isn't going to prove much. That being said, unless he's made significant progress with plate discipline (and based on his AAA walks/Ks it doesn't look that way),...

    Why would you buyout Lind to sign Cruz when Lind is a better hitter than Cruz against RHP? You're not putting Cruz in the OF so if you're just comparing them as hitters, stick with Lind/Valencia over...

    If they wanted to DFA him in the offseason that would have been fine. But a week away from expanded rosters? There was no need for it.

    My point is Goins has no trade value.



    Yes, there is value to saving runs. But if you plan on having a starting position, you better be able to save more runs with your glove than you give away...

    Promoting players and seeing them all have success as starters are two very different things. We only have seen Stroman have success as a SP in that group. Sanchez can be an elite RP, but can he...

    And the Jays were missing Lawrie, EE and Lind. Let's not pretend the Yankees were the only team with injuries, or that Tex is actually a good player as of 2014 and the Yankees were actually missing...

    There are some managers who have made a significant impact on the game. Is Joe Torre a fantastic manager, or did he luck into the Yankees at the right time? He was a 500 guy before he got Jeter,...

    Interesting to look back and see how defensive people were about Navarro. Turns out that he's been a liability for the Jays. An upgrade over JPA, but Navarro has been a disappointment all things...

    I don't know what potential you guys think there is in Ryan Goins, but he's essentially a younger John McDonald, defensive replacement extraordinaire.

    And I'll let you believe that their manager is the reason why they're winning, and not the fact that the Jays have outscored Baltimore by 27 runs and have allowed 98 more runs than the O's.

    The Orioles do a few things better than the Jays. While they don't out hit the Jays, they do a significantly better job of playing defence. And that makes a huge difference - because while the...

    Maybe what the Jays need to do is have a "president" or whatever title you'd like to come in to focus on the MLB team and let AA and the scouting team continue working on the minor league side.

    I think Holland has to be with the Leafs or he is exposed to waivers. If you can't fit him in as the 3rd C, then it would be interesting to put him on the second line with Kadri & Lupul.
