    But they can't afford it.....as soon as the backloaded deals hit them they will be dealing those players away.....The Jays are a joke!

    I dont know what the Steins are doing but I am pretty mad about it. I am sure they will jack up ticket prices, I wont be going to another game until they start spending the cash that they rape from us.
    I prefer TV. It's free and I have lots of snacks.

    Nothing is a guarantee in sports. That's why you have to play the probabilities/possibilities. Given Reyes' past leg issues, it is probably that he misses some time down the road. It might not even have to be this year, just down the road.

    The Jays are owned by Roger's Communications which is owned by the Rogers family which have a net worth of 6 Billion, at least... They can afford it if they can field an annual winner.

    I predict RA's 2013 numbers to be around his career numbers, ie. a league average pitcher. The past few years were a fluke imo. He was basically a career minor leaguer.

    I predict your prediction will be wrong. There is no such thing as a 3-year fluke.

    Year 1: Trash
    Year 2: Average (had an incredibly low INT%, most dropped INT's in the NFL)
    Year 3: Average (32 total TD's but a lot of turnovers)
    Year 4: Trash

    I'm a Jets fan. Mark Sanchez has never really been good.

    So you're predicting another CY Young year from RA? I'll take that bet.

Having a complete lineup doesnít mean having one that is pure power guys mixed with pure speed guys. It means having guys who cover all the tools individually. Look at the Cardinals lineup. they lose Albert Pujols and theyre still one of the best offenses in the NL. Why? Because they have guys who donít just rely on one facet of the game. They have guys who can do a little bit of everything. If you have a lineup full of one dimensional guys, whether it be power or speed, you arenít going to have a very balanced lineup. letís say somehow they do end up signing bourne.

    bourne-1 dimensional
    jeter-a little bit of everything
    cano-2 dimensional
    Teixeira-1 dimensional
    granderson-1 dimensional
    ichiro-1 dimensional
    gardner-1 dimensional
    youkilis-1 dimensional

    adding nothing but speed to the lineup doesnít make you more balanced. it just makes you depend on something different.
    I disagree with Youk being 1-dimensional. He will hit for average and some power. Cano is like Jeter, in which he can hit for everything as well. Tex/Grandy are wild cards. I would not be quick to call them 1-dimensional either. If they can adjust and hit for average again, they will make our lineup deeper in itself.

    I guess we have to agree to disagree.

    Completely agree. The returns we get from a guy like A-rod is (was) probably huge. I also like to think from a business perspective. Well...I am a business major... lol

    Did I say that? I just predict that your prediction (him reverting to a league average pitcher) would be wrong.

    If he's not league average then he should be in the good-great category which is CY Young consideration.
