    Of all the possibilities, there is less than 0 chance Jose signs a minor league deal to play in Buffalo in 2018

    Might be unlikely, but I wouldn't say it's less than zero chance. If he really loves the game...

    It's a good thing Spanky has been given a timeout for the past 48 hours so that Gary can stick around!

    When rosters expand in September we should call-up the entire Lansing Lugnuts starting 9 and let them play out the season. Just go ahead and announce it now as well so we have something to look forward to.

    There is no way Jose is just pressing; something is wrong with him. He looks thin, sooooooooo old, etc. I don't even want to bitch at this point. Gibbons, however, needs the boot: he may not hit but his decision-making is suspect. Grilli did not had it, Salty is a horrible framer, we needed a strikeout or at least a non-walk! Roll the dice with someone else at that point.

    I think the PED theory makes lots of sense.

    How about this you guys? He's old and he's in a slump. Simple as that.

    But there is a difference between being in a slump that you know you will eventually break out of and having that sinking feeling that you just don't have it anymore. I believe he is mentally shot and whether he can regain his composure is in doubt.

    Just imagine if this was his first year of that 5/150 contract.

    Truthfully you've just used a bunch of words to say nothing.

    He's old and maybe he can't play well anymore or he's in a slump. Or maybe it's a bit of both. But I don't think he has some mental issues that will prevent him from playing well ever again. Even if he did you wouldn't be able to tell.

    yes the BEST thing Atkins/Shapiro ever did so far was not signing JB to a long-term contract. Possibly the worst thing they did so far was signing him to a 1 year contract. They should have stuck by their guns and kept the page turned on the Bautista era as they had intended when the season ended

    It is clear when he goes up to the plate and is taking half-hearted cuts that the confidence is lacking. He let a changeup that was up in the zone go right by him on his 4th plate appearance with a 1-0 count. A confident player would have made Sale pay for that mistaken location. You may be right that he can still get going, but this thing is snow-balling big time. He is also feeling not just pressure for his own performance, but the entire franchise is at a crisis point, for which he knows he should be the guy to step up and can't.
