    Comments on tonights State of the Franchise

    I know this probably does not need a thread but this year is going to be a different meeting than last years love in....

    Hoping everyone will catch it at 6:30 EST and thought it would be better to have a specific Thread for all to talk and comment about what happens tonight and have a place to discuss what was said, while not clogging up the Off Season Thread!

    Looking forward to see how much more intense the questions will be this year compared to last when all anyone could talk about was how great everything was and by how many games would we win the division by!

    I hope they keep the tap dancing to a minimum!

    I know it's probably already been answered, but where can we catch this at?

    Didn't catch it all, and what I did catch was the same old same old. Was there anything there worth going back and listening to?

    not really... I got the impression AA wants to land two SPs before the home opener.

    -Stressed the hope that Stroman will start in the minors
    -Mentioned that he'd certainly like to add "at least one starter"
    -reiterated that he's been having plenty of dialogue with teams for trades, and with FAs.

    Nothing noteworthy, but I suspect he's going to land Santana or Jiminez in the next week or two.

    Thanks, appreciate it.

    The word "dialogue" is starting to bother me.

    YA, not much substance there but a few things.

    Sounds like AA is really high on Stroman and could break camp with the team depending if they sign another pitcher! This would be something to look forward to!

    Seirra getting a chance to be the platoon with Lind ...no real surprise.

    I think we can finally put Michael Young to rest

    Most same old stuff but Gibby figures we need a minor tinkering with our defence....no kidding., thinks Lawrie and Melky will reach next level. They can't go down anymore levels than they are now! And Morrow is ahhhh...who knows.

    Pretty much what was expected, hold the line and pump up any positives. What else can you do! Wish I was there for the food and drinks right now. And hope the Argo`s go away sooner than 2018 to get the grass in!

    I got from his remarks that they are very high on him and that if they don`t sign a pitcher, he will make it really hard to send him down as he feels Stroman is ready to be with the club. But if you add another guarranteed money pitcher, then he would probably land in the minors!

    And I don`t remember anything about getting more than 1 new arm, if in fact they do!

    What a waste of an hour of my life!. My buddies told me there were less people there since AA's 1st year and that most were not too happy with the inability to ask questions verbally instead of having to send them in. They said they felt as if they came to a lecture and not an open forum.

    But they had lots to eat and drank as much of Rogers booze as they could!

    what a waste of a thread!

    I know,..... but I think it will just die a long lonely death on its way to the bottom of the menu!
