Lol

If anything AA is GUN SHY.

He won't make a deal unless we come out the winners. That has seem pretty evident so far in every trade he has made

Yeah one knock against bleacher report is anybody can be a "Reporter". I guess the author is hating how AA Bolster the Jays future.

Anyhow to give him a fair discussion He made a bad example of Yunel-Agon trade as it was a clear steal. We gave up a declining shortstop for a young (and now have a great contract with us) shortstop with better defense and steady offense. Ill give him the Napoli trade but at that time Napoli is not necessary.

All in all the report is crap.

What do you mean? With the setup the previous posts in the thread gave it, you know you had to! It's like a traffic accident, you just HAVE to look.

Seems that Bleacher Report has a very impressive work-placement program for mentally handicapped adults.

Hey now! That is very insulting to mentally handicapped adults!

We all know the mentally challenged are capable of much more than limiting themselves to producing articles for Bleacher Reports...

I dont care that hes a Yankees for, but if you are going to criticize a team, at least do your research before you publish anything. This article holds no merit

The fact there are 0 responses to his "article" lends credence to just how much merit his opinion matters.

Research? Pretty much an afterthought!

It's so true. I had to look. I regret looking, but I couldn't live life knowing I would have been missing something.

He say he to trigger happy, then says he failed to deliver on free agents?

also escobar was a steal, and it's not like we had use for napoli, we had a mad young guy coming up, its not like we wanted to block him.

As much as I hate to agree with Kaiser and Twitchy in the same thread...that was the saddest thing I ever read. What was worse was someone had a go at him in the comments and he still spoke like a dumba$$.

Wow.

napoli could have dh'd and played 1b as well of course. Besides the point, it was a fair value trade at the time. this one just happened to blow up on AA (and the angels)

Yeah, exactly. No one in baseball would have guessed that Napoli was going to post a 1.000 OPS (and maybe he wouldn't have if he hadn't been in Texas?)

I know people already posted this but the Bleacher Report is a total joke. I used to read it all the time about Leafs trades and rumors, just because sometimes, but very rarely the person who wrote it shares the same thought as me.

But anyone can write on it, it's no one like an expert or sports writer. A 7 year old could write this if they wanted too. This is probably the worst I have seen.

ah nuts

It's not just AA, but Frank Wren is a great general manager. his name shouldn't be on there either. This guys a *******. I'm surprised he didn't throw Jon Daniels, Andrew Friedman and Theo Epstein on that list.

At least he got one right with Kenny Williams.

It's rough when the best thing you can say about the article is "well, at least it was short". While I believe there are the stud SS and then everyone else in mlb including Escobar, you make that trade every day of the week. If anything, the author should have chose losing the SS prospect in the trade, not Gonzo.

"one" knock? Lol

BR is just ridiculous useless pretend journalism that writes dumbass things to get page views. Jays fans are prevelant on the intraweb and writing stupid stuff will drive lots of Jays fans to see it if for no other reason than they can't help themselves..... Think rubber-neckers at a train wreck (emphasis on train wreck).
