Rasmus might need to bat second, for the sake of team chemistry. I think on his previous team he and his dad had issues with the manager. I think Rasmus mentioned having his head more in the game when he bats soon.

Still choked up over that too ..... Raptors/Lakers finals would have a been a dream championship series. Vinnie vs Kobe.... way better then Iverson vs Kobe. Lakers put two guys on Iverson all series making him ineffective, essentially. "Talkin bout practice?!"

Honesty, if he needs to bat 2nd for this team to work, I don't want him on this team.

Really, the Marlins aren't the ones claiming the trade is lopsided (at least management/ownership isn't) It's the fans, the players, and the city of Miami that are crying foul and asking the trade to be vetoed.

Just as I read this Sportsnet shows the clip of Iverson for their "Badass Friday's" segment.

Yes I'm a Ti-Cats, Leafs and Jay fan. Misery is something I'm used to.

Wouldn't you be crying for the same thing if you were a Marlins, Red Sox, Orioles, Yankees, Rays, Rangers, Angels, Tigers and/or White Sox fan? Hahaha. It feels great to be hated by GOOD teams.

If Colby 'I look stoned' Rasmus isn't a positive influence in the clubhouse he'll be sent packing. Gose is waiting in the wings and some quality depth options already on the roster...

Yes, I am trying to lower my expectations right now because I know offseason stuff like this often doesn't work out as hoped.

It's just so hard though. The Jays got a lot of good players and it's just so exciting.

I keep quoting you because you keep saying get rid of Rasmus, and I keep telling you give him this year, no need to rush to trade him. Give him another year, he's gonna prove people wrong.

As far as him "needing" to hit in the 2 hole then yes, I can disagree with that. It should be about the team, I think their is so much depth now that he shouldn't worry about where the hell he bats, cause most likely the guy hitting behind him has pop.

Gose's bat needs work imo. I would rather see him spend next year at AAA.

That hole "need to hit in the 2 hole" stuff is BS.

Some reporter asked Colby why he thought he was on a hot streak in like early June... and he said he liked hitting in the two hole because it helped him get up early in the game and clear his head.

Really blown out of proportion... Colby has done absolutely NOTHING to warrant people thinking he's a bad teammate or clubhouse guy.

He's quiet and goes about his business, seems like the guys on the team really like him, he's just not the guy running around looking happy go lucky like JPA or super serious like Lawrie, so people don't identify.

We signed Izturis and Melky.

Gregg Zaun's terrible track record talking about front-office or off-the-field matters speaks for itself.

Well we got Boneface for a reason. I love gose too but he needs a little more seasoning in the minors, just isn't ready yet
