    1) I was four their first season, d-bag.
    2) Age does not equate intelligence. If you need an example, see: Trump, Donald
    3) Your fixation with Alford is almost as disturbing as your sentence structure/need to press 'enter' at odd intervals

    Todd, your problem is that you think you've got all this knowledge and you're really not knowledgeable at all. As stated, age does not equate intelligence... But to humour you, I was 3 when the Jays started in '77.

    While I agree that the Jays are going to struggle this season, saying that they'll be hard pressed to win 50 games is the ramblings of a re-todd

    Look at that. Say something true and the so called now it all's on this board
    block you. Time for you to put your big boy pants on and stop being a bunch of bitches.
    You have called me ever named in the book. But like you i have a opinion. That you may not like and you have a opinion
    that is what makes this board cool. People agree with you sometimes and sometimes you don't does mean you block them and ran away
    and say shit about them like you did then a was block for a whole year.
    The powers that be have to be right down the middle not favor so called friends that take shit about them behind they backs.

    Lol the interviewer did a better job than most of the Toronto sports media.

    Going from Beeston to Shapiro is so underrated. Bigger improvement there then any single player transaction the club could have done.

    Yeah, she was fantastic, employed by Rogers too, as they own CityTV/CP24... as for the latter, that's a no-brainer, lol.

    I'm actually very very bullish on all the offseason moves so far. All the moves haven't been the sexiest (i.e. like the Yankees trading for Stanton), but these are all moves that considerably raise the floor for the Jays for both next season and the future. Even if we end up sucking next year, Aledmys Diaz, Yangervis Solarte, and Randal Grichuk will still be there the year afterwards. When our impact guys like Vladdy, Alford, and Bo finally get to the big leagues, it's really nice to know that we have a competent supporting cast in Grichuk, Solarte, Teoscar, and Diaz waiting in the background as opposed to Ryan Goins or Darwin Barney or Ezequiel Carrera who are basically black holes.

    It's all about depth and having competent players around the diamond. I feel like the front office has done a fantastic job of building that without giving up much at all in prospect capital and still having tremendous financial flexibility for the future as well.

    Yeah continuing the trend of acquiring controllable players without giving up significant prospects has been encouraging.

    We still need some of our prospects to work out to be a contender, but as long as all of Vlad, Bo, Hernandez, Alford, Gurriel and Jansen arenít busts then itís looking promising for 2019 onwards.

    We might sneak a wildcard this year but IMO thatíd only be a bonus.

    I like how we're buying low on all these guys. Diaz, Solarte, and Grichuk all are coming off down years which means that we didn't have to give up much to get them, but also that there's nothing but potential upside.
