    General Blue Jays Discussion Thread (2021)


    It's a new year and a new General Discussion Thread. Surprised this hasn't been refreshed yet but seems like now is as good a time as any with some major moves happening around the Blue Jays and plenty of rumors for more.

    I've actually noticed this constantly over the years. Seems very common for Jays players to be in the most searched list.

    I guess it makes sense, Toronto teams seem to have one of the largest online fanbases of any city.

    It probably has little to do with the city itself, at least for baseball. The Jays are Canada's team.

    I think that the majority of the online presence and TV viewership comes from outside of the city. We have a unique situation amongst MLB teams, an entire country backs the team. That shouldn't be seen as a criticism of the city, but the team wouldn't exist if it was just Toronto.

    Front office in their year end press conference stated 2 priorities to improving the team.
    Reduce walks...signed Ray and Chatwood. HMMMM, bad start here.

    Improve defense
    Signed Springer...great start.
    Now how about go sign Andrelton Simmons and move Bichette to 2nd base and Biggio to 3rd. Bichette could learn from the best.
    Sign Molina to a short term deal to split catching duties.
    Defense up the middle would be as good as any team in MLB. The corners would need a little work.
    The team would be much improved without a significant $$$ spend.

    Iím down. We had his 2 brothers as well. Its his turn.

    Also Chatwood is probably destined for the bullpen where hes shown much better command. I donít even know why the Cubs bothered putting him back in the rotation.

    Grant as I said, you've slagged my city plenty of times in the past, so that rubs me wrong. Born and Raised in East York, dude. Also, we all know the Jays are Canada's team, our city supports the team just fine, same with when they get an NFL team here eventually, Toronto's a large market sport scene.

    Oshawa is basically Toronto (as someone who has lived in both cities) Takes < 45 minutes to get downtown from here.

    I would love to live in Toronto but have you seen those prices lol. Iím from there but where I live is part of the Greater Toronto area. So its all connected.
