I agree but alot of relievers are inconsistent which is why id want the "know what you'd get" kind of guy.

I do really like Lincoln and Jansen a lot though.

Was really hoping for this move. Glad we are going all out!

Hopefully we can do something about the hole in 2B, even though it isn't that important.

What would be some good baseball radio stations/shows to listen to?

BcCowan on 590 is a tool, ESPN radio seems to cover the NFL more these days.

Baseball is a summer sport though. Toronto summers are very nice, in general. Taxes, I could understand.

Jeff Sammut 590 is decent. He's not strictly MLB mind you, but he does talk about the Jays a lot.

Doesn't San Francisco have a bigger park though? That gives you more space for hits to fall into.

The issue is the next one may involve trading Johnson or Buerhle. Not saying it will happen but there is always a chance if one really does not want to play here.

I really hope he finds a way to get rid of Buck and Lind. Too much money tied up in the two of them.

I expect his average to be around .280 but I believe he will have more home runs.

I really wanted the Jays to sign him because he is a perfect #2 hitter and fills a hole at LF.

It's only been a couple days but I've already grown attached to both Buerhle and Johnson....I'd rather keep them both than move one.

here we all were trying to figure out who hits #2 (before getting melky)
colby.....boneface.....lawrie.....
now thats taken care of
now we're figuring ok who bats #5
colby....lind.....lawrie
i bet that gets taken care of soon too

if you're going for it , best to have big name players hitting #2 and #5
if JB gets hurt there's no one besides EE to count on for 25+ hr/90+ rbis
and that would suck

just like it would suck if one of the top 4 starters got hurt or romero still sucks
then we're down to 3 quality starters
so best to get another proven starter at least - preferably a good 3-4 starter
now if he demands his 30 starts then i dont know
it would suck

It's pretty rare to have a very good offensive 2B. Izturiz and Boneface will do a fine job there, providing sufficient defense and good to great speed on the base paths. Second base shouldn't be a position to worry about, especially with the line up the Jays now have. Even the Giants/Yankees/Dodgers/Rangers have a weak spot or two.

I'm still hoping to get Laroche for the DH/1B and #5 spot.

Well the RBIs are pretty much a product of the other hitters on the team, and with all of the new additions...100 RBIs is pretty possible from whoever we put in the cleanup spots. The HRs might be a bit harder to come by, but table-setting and OBP is a position of strength for us now, so RBIs shouldn't be a problem.

I would be interested in this too. I am guessing there will not be good baseball talk until the Yankees and Red Sox sign someone or football ends.

I just hope none of d’Arnaud, Gose, Syndergaard, or Sanchez are traded. Also don't want to see JPA traded either. I'd rather ship off both Buck and Lind.

Exciting times either way. I assume AA is looking to nab another starting pitcher.

I hope they don't trade Buerhle, he's the only sure thing in the rotation.

well AA didnt have to get cabrera
cuz they would have got good production in the #2 hole from other guys platooning etc
and LF would have been ok with boneface/davis

cant see milke hitting #5
you know reyes was hitting #3 2nd half of this season ??

I think it's a guarantee JPA will be dealt. Unless they deal Lind, have EE at 1st, and JPA as DH

No. I still do not want Hamilton. I would have rather signed Fielder at the deal he got.

Hamilton at 3 years would be okay but I don't know why he would want it.
