    Not sure if that's what you meant.

    I like Bo and all, but I would be fine with trading him for something we need if they can sign Bogaerts or Correa. A high end MLB SP or a young CF with control perhaps?

    Well Semien was a good shortstop who was not getting high end offers because the market was thick. And teams don’t like to guarantee 30 year old shortstops the position forever.

    I just mean one of these guys could sign a pillow deal and play second base. Or a longer term 2B deal like Story.

    Toronto basically has 2B open. Three internal options but all of them could be dealt or used as bench players.

    I don’t think trading Bo is something they want to think about doing

    The thought of adding another bat like that is sure fun, but with Espinal/Merrifield and possibly even Barger in the mix, sure seems like they'd be better off addressing the OF or starting rotation with that type of money. But WAR added is WAR added I guess.

    None of us knows what is going on behind the scenes (other than snippets in the media here and there), which is why baseball offseason always has several surprises.

    Signing Bo and Vladdy long term is top of mind for the Jays FO, and if they see the chance of signing Bo long term as quite unlikely, then along with the "run prevention" mantra could lead to a surprise.

    No one saw Fernandez / McGriff coming.

    Speaking of McGriff:

    Fred McGriff Elected To Baseball Hall Of Fame
    By Mark Polishuk | December 4, 2022 at 7:14pm CDT

    Longtime first baseman Fred McGriff was inducted to the Baseball Hall of Fame, the only player elected out of the eight nominees under consideration by the 16-person Era Committee. McGriff was a unanimous vote, getting votes from all 16 members.

    Twelve votes were required for selection, and of the other seven names on the ballot, Don Mattingly came closest with eight votes. Curt Schilling received seven votes, Dale Murphy six votes, and the other candidates (Albert Belle, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Rafael Palmeiro) each got fewer than four votes.

    Shameful. Taking into account character in terms or criminal/wife beater etc is one thing, punishing for political affiliation is really bad

    Come on. Stuff= Transphobia. The Muslim thing was referring to terrorists I believe. Anyways, point stands it’s lame to penalize someone for having opinions against the woke grain, even if certain people find it distasteful

    I dunno man. Fuck around, find out. Act antisocial and you won’t be invited to social institutions. It’s not that complicated

    This about covers it.

    He prefaced the Muslim comment with “Extreme”. I think it is ok to describe those who fly planes into office buildings extreme.

    He has an opinion about bathrooms.. I guess you are not allowed to express it. He lost his ESPN job and that is their right.

    Hall of Fame should be on merit unless your are a serious criminal or pedophile etc.

    90% of the country agrees with one statement and at least 50% plus with the other. Yet he is getting cancelled from the HOF
