    He's really only in Toronto for the warm months...

    He's really only in Toronto for the warm months (guess he has to suck it up a bit in April and May), so it's not that big a deal. Playing on the awful turf would have been a much bigger issue I...

    Honestly at this point I think I'd rather be selling than buying. I can't see this team going anywhere this year with this pitching - even with a moderate upgrade.
  3. Poll: To me if the Jays want to go for it - get in the...

    To me if the Jays want to go for it - get in the playoffs AND make some noise - they need both a top-end guy and a middle rotation guy. At the moment there is no staff ace and Hutchison can't be...

    Tony Fernandez had an odd stance back in the day. It worked for him though.

    Garth Iorg from the same era was probably even worse.

    Until recently the Jays record alone in one-run games was awful, which explains at least some of the discrepancy. They lost most of their close games and won a lot of blowouts.

    EDIT: I think they...

    I voted no, only because I really cannot see him maintaining his current pace. However I could see him continuing to be a solid offensive contributor.

    His current numbers are way out of whack...

    I don't really have an issue dealing them at this point, but with AA in charge, how can you expect that to happen?

    The guy's job hinges on the team's performance this year. If the Jays miss the...

    Snydergaard alone makes it a bad deal, although Dickey wasn't completely awful. He was a solid inning-eater - definitely not garbage. But Snydergaard looks like he'll be a star.

    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.
