    I guess it's typical for a Blue Jays fan to celebrate mediocrity.

    Cause I'm far more likeable. It's sort of like choosing to cheer for the Thunder, instead of the Heat. You have proclamed winning not 1, not 2, not 3 etc. Championships, a month into the first season.

    (NOT THAT I AM COMPARING YOUR TEAM AT ALL TO THE HEAT)

    I think you just called his team the best in the league

    I've given him the keys to victory.

    Anyway, I love the trade for therealmin, I might even say he's a clear winner.

    Holliday and Kuroda are fantastic players, and Holliday has a few years left in him. Correa's nice, but he's not a generational talent and the #16 pick could easily bust out.

    How is it a clear win when we are two teams going in different directions? Correa doesn't need to be generational, he needs to be really good. Kuroda won't be around long and according to you, Holliday isn't even an impact player anymore.

    And after the Beltre trade, I think you're the wrong guy to be judging winners of deals.

    When somebody's got a chance, I traded for the Uphill Gardeners 83rd overall pick in that buck-flowers deal... wanna swap it out on the main page?

    LOL I loved the Beltre trade, but it was definitely fair.

    Holliday is not who he used to be (didn't even slug .500 last year), but he's still a great #1/#2 OF and Kuroda is very useful player. Correa is a looong way away and there's a ton of projection involved in his shine.

    Not a knock on the recent trade at all, as I don't mind this trade.

    But what is with all the love with Didi? Is it just because of his hot start? I see he has recently been getting lots of love from prospect sites and in fantasy baseball leagues. Maybe I'm missing something, but he really doesn't seem to have any skills that are overwhelming (other than defence), I guess the potential of 15 HR power from shortstop is nice. I've only watched a few games of him over the last 2 years, but he seems to be overly aggressive and would have to maintain a high BABIP to maintain a decent AVG, and his approach doesn't scream 'walk me'.

    I like him as in reality, but don't see the love for him in fantasy.

    Nice job by Silvio selling a non-fantasy relevant SS for a buy-low pitcher. And he gets a pick as well? Kind of a headscratcher.

    Thanks.

    He needed a young SS, so Didi gives him a better option of what he already had. I really like McCarthy, and I know he isn't this bad. The ONE big inning has really hurt him this season from when I've watched him. His strikeout rates have increased the past couple of starts, and he still has sustained an excellent low BB rate. Plus, with my pitching the way it has been (Doc on the DL for who knows how long; and with the Price is Wrong!), hopefully McCarthy turns it around and adds some stability to my rotation.
