I cant wait for the offseason to start. Holy crap, this stretch is awful, but I never realized how awful.
I wonder if someone in Rogers had a discussion with Shapiro along the lines of we need to keep the TV ratings coming. I mean 1 million a night numbers for 162 nights plus playoffs. Regardless of the FMV of rights, no one is going to want to go back to 300-400K days. Pressure is coming,
If extra salary is gonna be available, do you guys think it would be worth taking on some potentially bad money like James Shields and David Robertson if it meant getting Adam Eaton for a lesser package. Melky could be another guy they would would want to unload.
Anyone remember when Curtis Granderson pushed Brett Gardner to LF?
"We don't have to plan for a rebuild. But all 30 teams have to stay agile, and have to understand that we're dealing with human beings, and these assets to organizations are human and change and evolve. I think what we've tried to do is become more flexible and agile, and to sustain championships is to build from within."
It would be nice to get some sort of sense of what Rogers is willing to spend on payroll. The discussion around what the club should do will change in many people's eyes if projected payroll is around 140, 150, 160 or 170. I hope the Blue Jays raise payroll parameters, but I'm not convinced they will.
