    Got tickets for Jays at Twins and will catch a TB home game while I'm down in FL in early March.

    Quit looking at the Orioles, we're over here! Haha no seriously I agree but in those five weeks I'm still expecting at least a move or two of significance and either way it would take a worse looking team than this to stifle my enthusiasm for baseball being back.

    Would like to get down to ST this year. Get out of the cold and watch some baseball for 4-5 days.

    Hammel seems to have some of persistent stamina issue. ERA climbs up a full run in the second half for his career. OPS against goes up 80 points. BABIP goes up 20 points. Whip goes up by 0.17.

    Speaking of how close we are to spring training, is it weird for there to still be so many decent free agents on the board? Bautista, Trumbo, Saunders, Wood, Holland, Wieters, Hammel, Napoli, Valbuena, Carter, Pagan, Alvarez, Moss, Blanton, Romo, Utley feels like there's a lot of quality still available. Maybe it's a recency thing and it's always like this, and maybe it's because there's a lot of guys that fit the Jays needs (OF/RP) but I don't remember the market being this rich this late into the offseason.
