The AA era is starting to feel as "false hope".
Regressing in his 3rd year in terms of wins and division standings, regressing beyond even that of the final years of Riciaardi and Gaston. AA crippled our starting pitching and his farm system hasn't produced a darn thing at the major league level.
"there is zero chance this guy becomes 50% of a BJ upton"
Well then good. BJ Upton isn't that good anyways, I wouldn't want him. Good defender but Upton is a 230-240 hitter with a low OBP and a K-machine. The Jays already have enough of those players to begin with.That kid is way over hyped just b/c of where he was drafted.
Cheapskate Rogers should take all the blame.It's unlikely the Jays ever put up much of an offer for Darvish,most likely a token bid.They wouldn't go after Fielder because of the money.
One area I would put on AA,is his delusion that any of these prospects are going to be a part of any Blue Jay revival,and unwillingness to move them for legitimate producers.Then again,it's probable that no one was willing to accept them as tradebait.
Unless a change in philosophy occurs within the Rogers boardroom,this team will be a last place for the forseeable future.How long until Bautista begins to speak out after seeing what the minors hold for the Jays?
How do young Toronto fans think a team wins in the AL East?
YOU SPEND AND SPEND AND SPEND and then you can compete.
There is no hope at all in winning by dreaming of prospects coming in 3-5 years down the road.
"Cheapskate Rogers should take all the blame.It's unlikely the Jays ever put up much of an offer for Darvish,most likely a token bid.They wouldn't go after Fielder because of the money."
Thank God they didn't win the Darvish bid. That would have been a disaster for the team and would have crippled them for years. Talk about a massive overpay. The Fielder contract will also turn out badly for the Tigers.
Well if he was 700 ops youd be posting several times a day HAHAHAHHAHAHA, I havent said anything to you yet since hes come up, so wrong!
He never hit rhp never, ever, ever, ever
500 ops 10,11, 730~ ops in 12 in pcl
Players can improve from milb to majors, but the improvement that hech needs to be come a bad bat 600~ ops is astounding.
