This is where we sweat the little things...
...it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.
So the World Baseball Classic (WBC) is upon us soon and 10 Jays are going.
It's a boring time of year for baseball. Joey Bats is back with the Jays, Mark Trumbo is back with the Orioles. Not a whole lot else going on.
It's very quiet out there. Hello there in the RC, is anybody home?
So it seems like baseball has settled into a big game of chicken. The front offices are holding out for falling demands and the players and agents are hoping for 2016 money. Meanwhile we debate the 25th spot on the roster while the silence engulfs us, deeper and deeper. Maybe this is all a plot by Martin Scorcese to publicize his new Silence movie.
Its almost here. Will Santa have any gifts for his favourite baseball team? Did Shapkins ask for an outfielder or a reliever, or both?
The winter meetings are over and the Blue Jays still have holes to fill. With two weeks until Christmas will the Jays act before the holidays?
Sigh. Old thread becomes unmanageable so time to start a new one. Come one, come all. Rule 5, 40 man roster, free agents, HOF voting begins, potential lock out, etc. Also Jerry Howarth is doing well.
The last thread is a bit big now so we need to start a fresh one.
Where is that sweet spot for wins and crowds? What should Rogers be shooting for?
This is that time of year when I check out and start watching basketball - I'm even finding the Leafs worth watching, so far - but I may be the only one. So....
One team last won a championship 68 years ago. That's right - even longer than the Leafs.
But that's nothing. The other team last won it all 108 years ago. In the same year that Henry Ford unleashed the Model T on the world.
Ross Atkins was talking to the media today. No huge surprises.
Have we reached the point where we're grumpy and dissatisfied with a team that made it to the American League Championship Series?
I don't think so. I hope not, anyway.
Well, finally getting around to a between series thread with a day to go. Cleveland vs Toronto. Best of 7.
