not sure imo he's getting extremely close to the point he needs to make that huge splash in the FA or trade market to get that big piece needed to get us to the playoffs not sure if he can do that yet. he's great tho imo at building up a team through the draft and trading for prospects.

I disagree that it is getting "extremely close" to the time the next step needs to be taken to make big slashes in the trade and free agent market. There are still so many promising young arms and bats in the minor leagues that need looks to see what this organization really has. Patience is still needed most of all. To start trading away valuable young assets for immediate help would be a mistake. I have great trust in AA, as he has given me no reason to distrust his moves. Every move has been a benefit to the organization as a whole.

I would have faith if only he and Rogers would ok some moves that have any sort of monetary risk involved.

Right now I don't think we'll get the ok for anything like that this year. How long until we do? I hope AA's plan isn't to sit on his keister and watch prospects develop as Free Agent and Trade opportunities pass by.

He's a really good GM imo.
He's put together a really good young team.
He has put together a top 3 farm system.
He isnt tied to any horrific contracts.

The Jays are only spending 75 million this season which ranks them 23rd overall in the entire league.

I'd like to see what AA could do with a payroll similar to the Mets, CWS or Brewers (all sitting around the 95 mill level). I expect AA to make a move at some point this season to bring in a player to help win some games now.
