Adam Lind back?

Why?

lame.

EDIT: If there's one bad thing about the Jays eventually dropping their affiliation with Las Vegas it's that they're going to lose out on those sweet AAA uniforms/logo.

Snider is now being blocked by Davis and Lind is already up.

What a god damn joke. Just trade him already so he might actually get an opportunity to play.

AA is pretty smart GM. Bring back Lind up and watch the hitting go back to *****. The lineup has been producing with Cooper and EE at 1B.

AA is like hell we are hanging around this playoff race to closely that means I will have to actually make a deal to get some pitching in here to show the fans and players we are serious in making the playoffs this year. I know lets bring Lind up and watch him implode the offence and the team goes on an extended losing streak.

All that so AA can keep his "prospect rebuild" on track and not have to act like a big league GM and make a bold move that could make or break a season.

HAHAHAHA

If lind can come back into the form he played when he was resigned, we have one of the strongest offenses in the league.

Lawrie-Rasmus-Bautista-EE-Lind Wow!

Unless the trade thats on the table is for a gamebreaking talent, id prefer AA to just stay the course. Id rather not give up the guys killing it in AA for just a #3 arm.

If king felix is on the table? Hell yes.

A co-worker of mine told me he read an article (ESPN?) stating that AA has wanted to go out and obtain a pitcher or two but Rogers won't allow him to add salary.

Has anyone read anything in the past week to confirm if that is true or not?

I have a hard time believing that with attendance and television viewers being improved that they would shy away from adding salary.

Until they actually add a significant player with a significant salary hit that's what I'm assuming. I have never believed the "it's just a matter of time until we take on salary" nonsense spewed by President Paul Beeston. I don't believe this organization has any intention of doing so.

The 16 Million a year extension to Bautista didnt count as good will? A poor team would of let him walk.

Would that have happened if AA hadn't of been able to move Vernon Wells? We'll never know, but I remember it was specifically mentioned that the Wells trade freed up the money to sign Bautista.

Lind clearly earned his way back up after almost batting .400 in vegas... Though I'm sure he'll be given a short leash just like Cooper, Gomes etc..

Sure Snider will be up soon, unless Francisco shows some promise he'll be gone

Potentially from taking on bad contracts. But what owner would want that.

Lind will likely have a leash until the end of 2013 unless we move him. With his contract, they'll give him every chance to produce.

Davis has to go in the tank too. They won't call up Snider to sit on the bench nor would they take the job away from Davis as long as he's playing well enough to keep it.
