    I think that is ideal personally. But a big part of me expects the Jay's to pencil him into the rotation and take the savings (whether it be not picking up an option on player(s) or trading Buerhle...

    DeRozan can both be in his prime and still improve. The improvement will be far more gradual though and likely on the finer aspects of the game. Eventually that curve will start going down slightly....

    It might be time to incorporate some of these changes into the all-star game next year. The league would definitely have my attention :).

    I would add DeRozan to the list of players in his prime. Age 25 and 5 seasons in the league has to have him in his prime. That's not to say players can't get any better at this point, but he is...

    I don't think anyone would argue that. This is coming from a Raptor's fan. Cousins is probably the most talented C in the league. He needs to start translating that talent into some team success...

    I don't disagree. But do we really know what we have in Sanchez? He has been dynamite out of the bullpen, but I'm not sure the success will translate as a starter if he keeps throwing fastballs 85%...

    I realize this. I also realize that it is easy for me to say "10 million is a small risk for a guy with his talent as it is only a one year investment" because it isn't my money. It doesn't strike me...

    I give Cousins plenty of credit for his talent, but not for his foresight and self control. I think it is more likely he just lost his cool and caught himself just before he did something very...

    I might get some vitriol for this suggestion, but why not us? 10 million is a sizeable gamble for a player with his injury history, but with his stuff, I don't think it should be dismissed entirely....

    Lithuania can't shoot the basketball it seems.

    I've been waiting for Fields' jumpshot to return since we acquired him. I'd agree it is a better debate if he can find his shot again, but it has been 3 years straight now without being able to hit...

    We still really have only 3 solid, dependable rotation bigs though IMO. Not that I expected a bigger move than this at all.

    How many wins will it take to win the Atlantic?
