    It does kind of suck because both guys were on a lot of these lists and I think both were poised for big seasons.

    They should be back in good shape next year though - might be a bit easier for...

    I think Hutchison is going to be a great starter for the Jays long-term. But it's pretty clear he is done for this season. He's already at a career high for innings pitched (including the minors) and...

    There are a couple of ways of looking at it I guess.

    Even if they did go "all in", could they get to the same level as teams like the As and Angels? I would say no. I realize anything can happen...

    As a Jays fan I was a bit upset they didn't make a move to help them down the stretch. Then again, they will get Encarnacion, Lind and Lawrie back soon, which I suppose is better than any deal they...

    There is no way this team should be buyers. With all the injuries they have now - and with Lind and EE likely being gone a while - there's very little chance of them making the playoffs, even in a...

    As much as I'd like to care it's baseball. Summer is finally here and there are a million other things to do than worry about the Jays.

    Now if we were talking NFL football it would be a completely...

    Obviously things don't look great but the trade isn't the real problem. Pretty much every single player outside the bullpen is hitting or pitching at a rate far, far worse than their career lows....

    Thing is this is nothing new. It's happened before and it will happen again.

    The only really "new" thing is the Jays dramatically increasing their payroll. And even that isn't really new. Back...

    Yes there should be a better way of leveling the playing field. But it likely won't happen.

    Just like contraction is probably a viable strategy right now, but also won't happen.

    A lot depends on health, as always. With Johnson and Morrow that's obviously a concern.

    But yeah clearly they're a contender now - not a clear-cut favorite, but a contender.

    I thought they...

    He doesn't suck. But he's already been passed over twice for the manager's job so he didn't appear to have much of a future in Toronto.

    Yeah Vizquel called Farrell out on that at the end of the year which I thought was kind of cheesy.

    Like I said I liked Farrell as a person. He just didn't seem to be anything special as a...

    Have to be honest - I stopped watching a few weeks ago.

    At this point they're essentially a AAA team.

    I'm not blaming management or ownership. They've just had a lousy run of injuries and...

    Thames was always a great interview. Loved the guy's personality.

    As for his play - not so much. Mediocre bat, bad defense - could be an ok platoon guy at best.

    Pretty meh trade.

    Happ at least is somewhat serviceable and the Jays could use another starter.

    Cordero is just plain awful. Guy looks done.

    Not sure which two I would take.

    I don't see Baltimore getting in because reality is catching up.

    Also don't see the Jays getting in because they have far too many injuries.

    Any of the other...

    I'd say it makes no sense, but if Alvarz is injured they are down 4 starters (5 if you count McGowan). They only have so many bodies in the minors.

    Sort of. But based on his control issues he still has a lot to learn. And he won't really be starting again until he is 26.

    It may not be over, but I don't see him ever being a top-3 guy at this...

    If he's gone for anything more than two weeks or so the season is over. It was beginning to slip away anyway, but this would be the proverbial nail in the coffin.

    Encarnacion always had a bit of pop. He's not exactly like Bautista - at one time EE was regarded as a solid 3B prospect with some power.

    He was brutal defensively though. I think not having to...
