    Nice - if you go to that game, let me know and I'll buy you a beer.

    I've been to Dunedin a few times and (unless they've done a lot of reno's lately) it's not a great park. I'm looking forward to seeing a few different stadiums this year (also going to Bradenton to see the Pirates).

    I don't think the renos will start until after Spring training. Both the Sarasota Park and Bradenton are a step up from Dunedin.... the 2 nicest parks in the area are Phillies in Clearwater and Steinbrenner Park in Tampa.
    I can't wait to get down there in April to watch some A ball. Hopefully Vlad and/or Bichette may be there but I'm not counting on it.

    I went to the Twins stadium in Fort Myers last year. It's been renovated and I thought it was gorgeous FWIW.

    Blue jays still need two starting pitchers and maybe two more bullpen pitchers and back up catcher who can hit.

    If we were competing for a division title maybe, In front office's view point this is a .500 team with a small probability of doing better, and as such they want to accumulate pieces that could over perform and potentially be moved for prospects.

    If they acquire a SP then Biagini slots back into a late inning relief role where he is a proven commodity and my preference. One signing fills 2 spots.Jays have their top 4 spots locked in. no reason to acquire 2 SPs that are better than Estrada their 4th pitcher or Estrada would be a bullpen arm. That is not going to happen. So the thought of signing 2 good SPs is just a dream.

    Usually a catcher that can hit is a starter.

    What are you talking about? Every team in baseball has a David Ross type.

    This year’s summer weekend trips suck for the Jays, for those that won’t go west coast. June is Detroit and LA Angels. July is solid with Boston and Chicago but no way would I go to Chicago for a White Sox game (I don’t care who they are playing I’d go to three Wrigley games). August is Yankees and Mariners. Labour Day is the Marlins which I’d consider but then I looked at the prices in Miami that weekend. I’m going to the Rays in May, and the Yankees series doesn’t work for timing so unless I do LA (probably under 5% chance as I’ll be working the FIBA u18s for shit money)

    Make the trip west and see them in Oakland at the end of July. The Bay Area is awesome!

    I'm just impressed he managed to get hurt before spring training even started.
