    I'd love if the Jays went on a huge 2nd half run, made the playoffs, were granted permission to play in Toronto again, but then told Canada that they'd rather host the playoff games in Buffalo. It won't happen, but pettiness can be appropriate some times.

    If they are banned in August and September and actually won it would be perverse and cringeworthy. Trudeau asks them back in October after banning them for 2 years? Or doesn't and then they go deep into the playoffs or even win? What does Trudeau, Ford and other Politicians do then? Do they even acknowledge they won? No chance anyone from Canada could give them a congratulatory message, what would they say?

    Justin - "I'd like to congratulate the Blue Jays, formerly of Toronto for winning the 2021 World Series, to save you, my loved Canadians I kept those unvaccinated, dirty, orange-man voting baseball players away. I kept my flock safe from the bad people, you are loved, now enough about the Blue Jays vote me back in. I love you!"

    This is why if they aren't back they should trade Ray and Semien. As a Blue Jays fan seeing a deep playoff run in Buffalo would be a bizarre thing I wouldn't want to deal with.
    If we don't win this year we'll win next year, if we don't win next year we'll win the year after that.

    I'm actually rooting for that exact scenario (not trading Ray and Semien, the part before that). Winning a World Series in Buffalo would be poetic justice.

    No - that's on August 12th and it's the Yankees v. White Sox

    That should be a special night.

    Boys the Jays won’t be in Toronto this year. Get used to Buffalo, might become their permanent home.

    San Antonio, Charlotte, Las Vegas, or Nashville are the expansion candidates. Doubt it will be Buffalo permanently.

    Nashville would be fitting. They aren't afraid of the unvaxed there.

    Sigh. Just as a reminder the worst outbreak in professional sports occurred on the Vancouver Canucks, despite the efforts of the Canadian government... yes this was before we had vaccines, but the Canadian government did everything they could to "keep us safe". They prevented the Canuck's from travelling to the States, and it was worthless. They still had an outbreak as did other Canadian teams. The NHL Canadian bubble teams all had COVID problems and likely spread COVID in their communities a bit... We can't ban everything forever, so I don't hold it against them. However I do want to point out that the Canadian NHL bubble wasn't that "safe".

    MLB teams, mostly 85+ % vaxed with daily testing will be way safer than the Canadian NHL teams were last spring.
    If we don't win this year we'll win next year, if we don't win next year we'll win the year after that.

    This sucks man, let the Jays back. They are abiding by strict protocols/testing that is different than normal people.

    Jays won't be back because only vaxxed personnel are allowed to come. Not vaxxed, they stay in the US. There is no way that will fly in the mlb.
