    You have no idea if it's a blunder.

    Basic logic would suggest otherwise. Maybe it will work out, but right now it the whole situation looks stupid on the FO.

    If anyone looks stupid because of what transpired it's the agent.

    He was offered 4-80 and ended up with 3-60.

    The agent looks worse.

    Maybe, but I care about the Blue Jays FO, not necessarily how good his agent is. They misread the market and proceeded to overpay for Morales (in the sense of what he likely would have ended up with at this point, not his $$/WAR).

    That's all perception and if I had to guess, your perception about a number of things is incredibly warped.

    One of the games is Eddie's first one back in Toronto 5/8/17. Use promo code WINTER20 to take an extra 20% off (expires today). It comes to $39.20 and you get:

    -2 tickets somewhere in section 516 - 532

    - All ticketing options include a $20 Uber first-ride credit for new riders only, an Official Fan Package Sports Discount Package with discounts and incentives to popular sports retailers and includes a $25 gift card toward the purchase at the Official Fan Package online memorabilia store

    - All packages also include a voucher for one complimentary appetizer (up to a $18 value) at any Jack Astorís Bar and Grill location, including a couple just blocks from the Rogers Centre.
    Honestly I think that deal isn't anything special. The $20 Uber thing is literally available to anyone already and the tickets are above face value..

    A free App isn't bad but to save 12 bucks on that to spend an extra $30 on tickets? No thanks.

    They were in control of that team for awhile and they were shit for awhile. I think I would put more in stock of the minor league development
    Fuck Taylor Swift

    Atkins never was but Shapiro built some good teams and made some really good trades for a team with the payroll restrictions they have.

    This is far too short into their tenure to even get an idea of how this organization will shape up.
