    Looking at those pics and the first thing that bugs me is Stro wearing a Dukes hat. Put on a damn Jays hat like everyone else

    He's not in uniform at all there. That picture probably wasn't taken during an official workout.

    Every workout is a official workout once you report to spring training, esp when your at the Jays facility. It would be different if he was wearing a jays warm up jacket and maybe was wearing a eagles hat, or if he was wearing his duke hate because it was March madness already. Iím not saying that he is going to run town, but it does say something about the guy

    I like how in two different threads members are complaining about two completely unrelated aspects of Stroman's douchiness shown through his wardrobe choices...on day one of Spring Training.

    Fuck the Tulo injury meme, this is going to be the meme of the year. Either Stroman has been really stepping it up a notch, or I have just been noticing it more.

    i suspect the jays would rather a young promising guy like ramirez or mayza get big league reps than liriano.

    I dunno, is there such a thing as "young and promising" when we speak about relievers? If we're talking about guys who have already been relegated to the pen from the minors, unless they are at Osuna level, I'm assuming they are all pretty much replaceable cogs in the eyes of the organization. Unless you're coming from the angle that not one penny above the minimum should be spent on pen arms.

    i believe the FO moves indicate a plan to build the team to contend ~2020. And use the next few seasons to give in-house options the opportunity to get MLB experience and show what they are capable of. Ramirez for example with additional MLB experience may prove himself a solid MLB BP piece, that 2017 was no fluke - that he is someone to be relied on when Bo and Vlad join the show. A guy like Liriano reduces the opportunities available for these guys.

    I kinda feel like if we sign Liriano, it would be as a starter rather than in the pen. I wouldn't be opposed to either though.

    A rebuttal to that could be that if the Jays have excess payroll available, they might as well spend it on someone like Liriano to hopefully build up his value. And if the team is out of it in July, trade him and try to extract some reasonable prospects in exchange for eating his salary like they have done twice already.

    Sure, thats another option. It may be why they signed Grandy.

    I'm feeling:

    Osuna
    Biagini
    Loup
    Tepera
    Barnes
    Petricka
    Breslow

    Pretty gross
    If Guerrieri is going to be used primarily as a reliever instead of a starter, then I think he makes the team assuming his arm is still attached to his body. I think the Jays add a starter and put Biagini in the Bisons rotation to start the year.

    Osuna
    Tepera
    Barnes
    Loup
    ----------
    Petricka
    Guerrieri
    Dermody/Mayza (to get a 2nd lefty in there)

    Tim Mayza is definitely making the team out of ST. That guy is going to be elite.
