"Really no point in punishing him. What he did what within the terms of their agreement."
And seeing it was he who felt it was time to move on for bigger and better and hasn't found it. There's nothing wrong with letting him to continue to look.
I preferred him in the 5 or 6 hole thank you. You can't seriously argue that Lind would be better at driving in runs in crucial times of the game over Vlad would you?
Vlad's antics blew it. He and his agent turned a gentleman's agreement into a childish standoff.
Well other teams take notice , and if the Blue Jays don't want him when they need help driving in runs and getting consistent atbats. Then he must be really no good.
So teams will stay away.
