    I think he means if they were going to go over, then they should have just gone crazy and spent huge since they were going to get penalized anyway.

    Seems a bit odd to complain that we didn't go ahead and sign a shitload of future org guys when we landed the best international prospect available.

    Didn't we sign, like, 40+ IFAs that year? I thought I saw an article posted 'bout that 'round these parts within the last couple of weeks.

    Edit: Maybe that was last year. Or maybe I'm a dumn.

    I agree, I think Vlad alone was worth the penalty. It really depends on what else was out there that was worth throwing millions on.

    Plus if we'd gone much more over we would have had a 2 year penalty instead of just 1.

    Oppo homers = juice. LOL
    I donít suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

    Those are some pretty damning accusations getting tossed around like they're nothing. Lackey and Bosio need to be disciplined for that. There's just no need.

    Former Blue Jay Emilio Bonifacio's brother, Jorge, has been called up to the Royals along with P Matt Strahm.. with Raul Mondesi Jr. and Paulo Orlando getting sent down.

    Royals already shaking up the roster to try to spark the team in a middling AL Central.. where everyone is within a game of each other, unlike the AL East and West..

    Shockingly, KC's starters are #1 in ERA.. the bullpen is killing them, though... Cleveland is 30th in SP ERA..

    On the topic of Cleveland--so far, the Edwin deal is not making the team better.

    Worst starting pitching in the AL.. only the bullpen is keeping them afloat. After Salazar & Carrasco, Kluber/Bauer/Tomlin have ERAs north of 6... the offense, no thanks to Edwin, is only being supported by their own pieces in Jose Ramirez, Santana, Lindor, Brantley and Chisenhall.. so far, giving $20M to Edwin has been looking like a waste and could end up being an albatross for the Indians.. Kendrys has been the more productive player here in Toronto, as Edwin only has 2 HR/5RBIs, batting .217, and striking out as horribly as Jose Bautista..however, he is a slow starter. But Cleveland can't wait forever.. not when the pitching can't carry its weight.

    Like the Jays, it's surprising no teams other than Milwaukee showed interest in Eric Thames.. I mean, he's up to 8 HRs now.. and has the most runs scored in MLB (20).. quite a steal for the Brewers!

    I don't know if anyone else cares but I like keeping tabs on the Atlantic League. Former Jays and baby Jays on teams: KC Hobson, Kevin Ahrens, Caleb Gindl, Rommie Lewis (Lancaster), Kyle Drabek as pitcher, Andy Wilkins (Sugar Land), David Carpenter, Santiago Nessy, Tony Abreu (Bridgeport), David Aardsma, Nolan Reimold (Long Island), Michael Crouse, Brandon League (New Britain), Aaron Laffey (Somerset)

    You' d think the giants have it somewhere in the contract that if he does something like that they won't have to pay him?

    **EDIT** I should say not have to pay him for the 6-8 weeks. And I'm well aware they won't want to piss off their star pitcher to. It's more of a curiosity thing
