Pretty much what was going through my head when I read about the trade.

I'd be a little shocked actually. Morales is at DH, Montero is at catcher because Smoak is at 1B and can't DH either due to Morales. I mean, if they got rid of Smoak, sure, I see it happening (which they totally freaking should. Smoak ****ing sucks). I also don't think it makes sense to have Zunino start out of the gate without little pro ball experience and calling him up mid-season delays his free agency by a year and he doesn't become a super 2. It doesn't make sense for a rebuilding/mediocre club to let that happen in a meaningless year unless they seriously think they can compete... which ummm... would leave me speechless.

Call him up mid-season when Smoak inevitably fails to hit... again and finally cut bait with him and when they realize Montero isn't a catcher.

They brought the fences in, of course they think they're competing.

So my hopes of seeing Paxton and Taillon at the WBC seem to be dashed. I know they weren't named to the team but Dempster wasn't either so yet he still had a decision to make. Too bad instead of Paxton and Taillon making the decision it was Seattle and Pittsburgh who want them all spring training.

From the Edmonton Winter tour video:

That's got so much avatar potential.

lol, Tommy Hottovy also successfully outrighted off 40 man to Buffalo. Jays are pretty badass at doing this (at least with relievers).

EDIT: guys they have claimed and outrighted:

Storey, Beck, Brummett, Hottovy. Also were able to outright McCoy and Carreno off 40 man roster successfully. They claimed a bunch more guys that they weren't able to do this too though.

I'm excited about the Reyes press conference. I don't know a whole lot about the guy but he seems like a real energy guy and team oriented player.

It's pretty crazy to think about . There's just no way you could fit every player on the same table answering questions.

Quick Question, when do single game tickets go on sale ?

I've missed the opportunity to buy tickets for the home opener for the past 5 years and have had to resort to Stub Hub.

Quite likely. As I've said before, I suspect these are simply being held when each player feels like dropping by Toronto.

From memory.. usually the first or second week of february. Just check daily, sign up to receive updates from the bluejays online.

They're actually relatively easy to get because the RC is so big, which is nice. As long as you're ready to go the minute they go on sale its never a problem. If things go as planned, ticket resale value is gonna be real good for scalpers.
