    I would literally unretire Yuniesky Betancourt if it meant no more Goins. I can't handle any more of him.

    Fwiw

    JP Morosi on the radio

    Says Jays won't punt next year. Too much invested amd attendance too good

    Says best move would be to trade for the last year of McCutchen

    I wonder what that would cost, given he's rebounded quite nicely this season and is one hot streak away from finishing with 4+ WAR.

    Without gutting the farm system which is what I think this FO wants to avoid while still improving the MLB roster - Smoak, and let Pearce play 1B. Would need a third team involved. Possibly Pillar+ if Pittsburgh is willing to accept a lesser, cheaper player with more years of control as the centerpiece.

    I'm glad Bautista will not be part of the future.

    Pitt wouldn't have much interest in either. Not much, if any, upgrade on who they have in house.

    This mornings interview with Shapiro on the Fan590 was actually the least optomistic I have ever heard him. He seemed resigned (realistic?) to the fact that next year could be a very tough year for this ball club as well. Seemed to be laying the PR groundwork for the future of this team being a couple of years away, which is true. Never the less he didnt sound confident.
    Looking forward to Tuesday March 1st, 2018 > Blue Jays @ Phillies 1:05pm, Clearwater FLA >>Grapefruit League begins.
