    If it was really about putting the best talent on the field and not options, contracts, and service time, Morales would be DFAd, VG would be up, as would Romano or Shawn Reid-Foley...Grichuk would be an after thought ad Jansen would be up.. I also think LGJ would do ok if given more playing time in the Show.
    Who do you cut for Jansen? Catcher position is what it is. Russ going nowhere and Luke doing a fine job backing up.

    The point of my post was that if you do not take into consideration contracts etc, then we do not have the best team available on the field. If Martin had his numbers, even with his game calling and he was making ML minimum and had options, you bet your ass he would be down in AAA and it would be Maile and Jansen. Same concept as Morales..


    EDIT: Just checked.. Jansen hitting 311, IF you divide that in half (50%) at the ML level he would be batting .155

    Martin is batting .177... below 300 OBP and a 670 OPS, basically the lowest of all stats on the team. EXCEPT for.. Our buddy Kendry Morales..

    Hi Guys

    Jeff Blair on baseball central today discussed the possibility of turning Nate Pearson into a closer with Kevin Barker. The two went on to discuss how that maybe the best role for Pearson.


    What do you guys think? I for one would be outraged if we took an ace potentiol arm and turned him into a closer then again I don't argue to have the same expertise as a former big league and A man who has been covering baseball for 3 decades

    I don't know if the Jays' analytics department reads this board but if they do I'm sure you can be expecting a call about a potential job any day now.

    It is stupid. But isn't that essentially what we did with Fists Osuna?

    I think listening to anything Blair and Barker say about prospect development is about as smart as jumping into a swimming pool filled with double edged razor blades.

    The difference being.... Osuna had only 129 innings of injury filled minor league ball under his belt over 4 seasosn, including a TJ surgery, so his decision was probably largely based on health rather than a lack of belief in his stuff. His numbers when he pitched as a starter were always pretty good.

    There's 0 reason to think Pearson needs to be relegated to a pen arm after 21 innings and a freak line drive injury

    I don't think Pearson is the guy to do it with but I've come around on converting a prospect to relieving quicker. Bradley went from a two win starter to a 2 win reliever. Relievers are still better cost controlled in arbitration but we've seen what legit value they hold.

    I see your point, yet Pearson is one of the last prospects I'd think of to make the conversion - just because he looks like the result of a lab project intended to design a durable starting pitcher.

    Yeah I think SRF fits better for that kind of role. Even if it's a 2 inning 6, 7 or 8th guy. Maximize his value. Tougher to do when the team has struggling starters. I'm just saying I've come around to converting prospects to relievers while they still have options rather than after they fully fail.
