    Not sure what your point is. Youíre showing pics of his old delivery before the change. Youíre comparing his old delivery to his old delivery.

    I only quoted that article because both you and Chong had not watched or listened to the game, itís what they were talking about all game, even had quotes directly from Stripling saying he has never made such a big mechanical adjustment in between starts. You guys were basing your discussion on old information.

    Wilner is suggesting the last 2 games are a result of Stripling making "major adjustments". Well he struck out 9 vs the Braves on May 13 without those "major adjustments".

    I didn't see the piece on TV so can't comment to that, my post was more directed at his article

    Heís saying he had flashes of success with his old delivery too. So letís see how these changes work out long term.

    Lol, then say that. JK. I have a hard time articulating sometimes too. Now I understand your point. And I agree. He should be given some leash here given the results since the changes.

    I saw it batted around. Berrios for Kloff, Jansen and Groshans. Berrios is arb 3 for 2022.

    For now I'd be happy with a big bullpen arm. I hope they don't take too long to pull the trigger. I'm ok with the 5 starters they are rolling for now. They'll need another before the deadline though.

    These guys are probably too risk adverse for a rental but Sherzer at the the front of this rotation with a few bp additions makes us a legit WS contender

    Rumor has it that 2 bullpen arms are the main focus and the Jays are working diligently to make something happen for guys that have late inning experience. Nobody wants to make a move yet, and sellers are holding out for better offers. Bullpen arms will be a sellers market (aren't they every year?).

    Scherzer is probably costing us a top 100 like Grosh or something.

    Possibly. I did like what Masai said about playing percentages. If you think you have a certain % chance to win, then you push your chips in. I'm not saying to empty the farm, but the window is open now. Anyone who thinks we aren't contenders isn't paying attention. We are only a couple of bullpen arms away right now. Sucks to think what we could be if Yates was healthy this year.

    Yates, Merryweather, Phelps, Cole, Hatch, Milone, Borucki

    We've basically lost an entire quality bullpen to injuries.
