    It's a difficult clusterfuck to be a part of, but these kind of tough times test one's fortitude, and they can all come through it stronger in the long run. I have been wondering whether this team has a sports psychologist. If so, I wonder if they need a change there, because these guys are just all stressed out to the max right now. They need to figure out a way to loosen up and just play ball.

    While I'm still trying to remain level-headed about this, what's worrisome about the Jays is that this is pretty much how last September went for the team. Absolutely brutal offense and heavy reliance on the starting pitching to come through for any chance to win. A quick burst of offense in the ALDS made us forget about all that and then Cleveland's BP really exposed the Jays hitters. What's the average output over the last 50 games including the post-season? Something like 3 runs?

    It shows how much these players care. How many on this forum are ready to throw this team under the bus?

    I'm kind of glad the team is doing this poorly. They got pieces in the farm. They just need the next two years to restock and suck.

    Yeah I think the chances of climbing out of a 2-10 start are pretty much slim and none, especially with the injuries tacked on. If everyone was healthy, then maybe, but not now. Friggin' Latos and Lawrence will probably be in the rotation for the next little while combined with no JD and a bunch of replacement level scrubs scattered all throughout the lineup. It's bad and I don't think this roster has a 40-19 run (or whatever it was) in them like the post trade deadline 2015 team did.

    I think the most frustrating thing is we started with 6 games against the O's. They are 5-1 against the Jays are 3-2 against everyone else. They got to pad their win total at our expense.

    Yeah it's not so much the 2-10 start, it's everything else. It's early, and if we woke up tomorrow with the 2015 Jays they'd have a ton of time to right the ship. But this team is not anywhere near that. It looks old, in decline, and now the injuries are piling up.

    Emotionally unstable! that's it Grant. I always wondered what was wrong with me. Thanks buddy!

    Pretty much defined yourself as a casual. We have all stuck out worse than this.... more than 20 years worth

    Not accepting garbage doesn't make you a casual.

    If they do continue this tailspin and go the rebuild route, I'm still gonna watch when its convenient but not to the extent of what Im used to. Last year I rushed home to make sure I didnt miss first pitch and would record games I missed. I'll follow them closely obviously and watch what I can, but won't go out of my way. Im sure most people here will do the same

    I'll watch them all until the weather gets hot and vacations start happening and I get burnt out. I'll check the scores every day but will probably watch 2-3 a week.

    Would not throw the team under the bus, just Shapiro. Team didn't have fade this quick. Shapiro is shrewd but just did not have the creativity of AA. Not what people want to hear but at least AA had as much passion as the players.

    yeah Shapiro should have known Pearce Travis and Martin would combine for a negative wRC+ in the first 12 games. What a fuckin dumbass
