Martin has flaws we will never get more value out of him than when they traded him for Berrios. The fact that they're not drafting impact players is not good for the long term strength of the team though.
Exactly.

It's both good and bad depending on how you look at it.

Not being able to develop pitchers is a serious flaw the Jays need to solve.

Lots of blame to go around, but that Moreno trade was bad
I think as time goes on its only going to look worse. I like Varsho, but Moreno is going to be elite and both Jansen (when he is not on thr DL) and Kirk are extremely one dimensional.

Kirk was clearly the guy that should have been traded. Value was high, would have got a decent return. Maybe not Varsho, but decent. I hate to even go here...but a position player who is bordering on obese? 25 years old? Yeah thats a bit of a warning sign, IMO.

I will hold off on my comments relating to Schneider. I have been far less that impressed, going back to last season. But being a first time manager, with a long history with many of the guys, I'm willing to give him a bit more time to figure it out. A bit.

Oh wow, that was a great play there. They've brought the "magic" to Minneapolis.

Yes. Springer was on third,got caught in a ground ball rundown and was tagged out, meanwhile Vladdy thought he had time to get to second and was thrown out on his way back to first. It was benny hill stuff.

Then springer with a bloop double! I don't care how bad things are overall, it's always fun to watch the bluejays when they're looking good.

Dear Sportsnet,

Please get rid of Devlin. He.

Is. Terrible.

You would be better off with sounds from the ballpark. Or just Siddall.

Thanks,

All Jays fans.
