    Good. Hopefully they can work out a trade before his suspension is up. We don't need any cancerous bigots on the team as the guys try to turn things around in 2017

    I can't tell if this is fake or not, but apparently Barry Davis felt the need to release an "official statement":

    I may die from the cringe.

    Poignant words from Barry at this difficult time. This really motivates myself to make sure I'm treating everyone around me with the utmost respect. Thank you, Barry.

    I look forward to helping Barry show everyone that he, too, is a Superman.

    He's dead serious and I quite frankly, wholeheartedly agree.

    Good excuse to trade his ass. Pillar will be at least 32 by the time the Jays are contenders again.

    Pillar for Pirates prospects.

    Barry is bang on here. Nice to see Barry stepping up to the plate. He really "gets it".

    Ok.. You know as well as everybody else that he used that word in the heat of a frustrating angry moment. Is that a valid excuse? No it's not an excuse but he didn't mean it for in sense of what the word actually means. He used it in the same context as words like "asshole", "shithead". If he called him a "motherfucker" instead would that express offense to all the mothers in the world? If Motte is an out of the closet homosexual, then it would be different. Society is slowly changing for the better where people are starting to use these types of slurs less and less, but it takes time. Pillar grew up in a society where that word was used in general terms. I'm pretty certain he would never use that term against someone who he knows is openly gay. I don't know Pillar personally, but from what i've seen and heard while he's been here and from the media, he sounds like a decent respectful person. He's nowhere near douchbag levels, like Escobar. If what he said was said in a non impulsive situation, then that would also be different.

    To actually be serious about trading one of our best players who is having a career year because of this is fucking mind boggling. Also calling him a cancer in the clubhouse, like any of us would know? This is beyond frustrating.

    Someone gets called a bundle of sticks and everyone loses their minds.

    Pillar is younger than most posters here and grew up in California. Pretty sure it's never in his life been cool to call someone a faggot.
