This is going to be a great year! Still can't believe Bautista is expecting $30 mil!!!! Hilarious!


Go Jays!!!

Sanchez is a strong possibility for a starter . I think he could be dominating ..

He will be I'm hoping. It is great to see the competition in spring training among the rotation. Floyd had looked really good too.

Those 20#s of muscle he slapped on sure helps his throw!

Doesn't look like Edwin is going to re sign. If him and Joey Bats aren't around next year, I'll be more than a little disappointed.

They'll never win with Bautista. His true colours are showing this year. All about him. Let him walk.

Rogers ruins sports! We all know this. Bautista isn't worth $30 mil a year just cause he's had 3 decent years. He's slated for dh and he's less than 40hr a year. Let him walk! EE is decent but once again we could be freeing up more money!

As much as I like those 2 players indnt want them
Back for huge $$$. They are obviously on the downside of their careers very shortly. Save the dough, let's the Yankees waste $$ on them then go sign some incredible pitchers.

You're using "decent" pretty broadly, haha. He's definitely not worth 30 a season, he won't get that anywhere.

Hahaha he is worth $10 just because of the bat flip gif! Honestly I'd take Valencia back over Bautista at $30 mil.

Yep. No brainer. Sad for hutch- hope he lets this be a spring board for him.
Great feel about the team this year. Excellent bullpen. Good starters. Best lineup in baseball. My MLB subscription is purchased and I'm ready for Stro on opening day!

The movement on Sanchez's fastball is unreal. Might be the best pitcher we have

Agreed, needs a bit more control tho imo. Letting a few too many get away from him.

What a terrible ending to a great game. Hopefully they win tomorrow, nothing wrong with 3-1 to start the season. Can't wait for the home opener.

Their bats have let them down in most of the games they've lost (except for a couple bullpen mishaps), so I'm not concerned. That, and it's sooooo early. Starting pitching has been good, bullpen has been ok (not great, not bad), but their lineup has too good of hitters for this to go on too long.

From some of the reactions online you'd think the Blue Jays had been eliminated from the playoffs after 12 games....

Not sure who would hate Sanchez! Lol. I don't agree with him getting sent to the pen later in the season. I honestly think they should trade Bautista for some bullpen help

lol... no that didn't come out right , was sorta referring to the team ... Agree with you on why is he heading back to the pen at his age and weight.. not sure what it takes to go the full season .. The Bautista trade would be interesting , but he's gone anyways at the end of the season ... Rumours are Boston wants Encarnacion to replace Ortis ..
