    Was an accurate statement at the time, dumbdick.

    This was a pre-Lindor, Seager, Correa world. It was a wonderful time to be alive.

    It was incredibly hyperbolic at the time. He had put up 1-win in close to 100 games in Colorado, and looked like a broken shell of his former self, which lead to Colorado jumping ship while they still could.

    And the year before he had a 170 wRC+. Back to back .400 wOBA seasons with elite defence. I don't think it was hyperbolic at all, he had long track record of being elite and no other shortstop was even close to him in his prime. Pardon me for not writing off a Hall of Fame caliber talent after a 100 game sample.

    This argument is bullshit anyways. The day the Rockies dumped Reyes and ate his contract is the day the Jays won this comparison, if anyone actually cares about such things. The missed opportunity was letting him slip away to the Mets instead of getting much needed MIF depth and now it's 200-something Goins games later.

    Just like how technically the Jays didn't win the Encarnacion trade. They were just smart enough to get him back after his tryout with Oakland.

    Zero regrets about this trade. We gave up zero quality MLB prospects and dumped Reyes' contract.

    This argument isn't about the trade, it's about me trolling you for saying we acquired the best shortstop in the history of time. Try to keep up.

    What is the time frame of Tulo's injury - anyone know how serious it is?

    With him and Travis being glass - would trying to sign a Zack Cozart make sense? Chances are he would wind up being a full time starter at one of those positions.
