I like the signing. I like the player. I just don't have high expectations.

Then just do us all a favour, when you feel the need to post something really fucking stupid. Stick on the Devils broad or post on tsn. I'm sure both groups would appreciate that style of posting much more.

Naw, I have none. Which is why you pay the guy so little. If he bounces back he could have some value at the deadline.

Tulo to the Yankees makes me very angry despite it making a huge amount of sense for everyone.

You can enjoy these bargain basement signings like an idiot if you want, I refuse. We have the richest owners in baseball, treating us like the Tampa Bay fucking Rays is unacceptable. This team should be there with the Yankees and Red Sox every year. You guys can be Winners shoppers all you want, I'm a Nordstrom's guy.

It's amazing you still don't understand the implications of having a majority owner that is a publicly traded company.

Oh ok. So that's why MLSE spends money like it's going of style and Rogers sits on their hands.

And neither owns 51% or more of the company so they don't have to declare expenses created by MLSE on their EBT report given to shareholders the way Rogers have to for the Jays.

Dave Shoalts covered this in 2016. It's a thing.

"You say, 'yeah, but they're a billion-dollar company,'" the source said. "But they're a billion-dollar company owned by the shareholders. Shareholders don't want a division that is some ego play for a president of a division or even [Jays chairman] Edward Rogers that will lose $20-million a year."

The more Danny Jansen the better assuming he can handle the workload. Luke Maile as the backup backstop atm.

It was going to happen but I’m still a little sad. Russ was the first good Jays catcher in a long time.

Jays paying 16.4 of 20 owed to Russ. These prospects better be fucking decent.

They're okay, but a long way off. Could be something, likely be nothing. Anyway, 16.4 for Russ and 20M this year for Tulo, great use of finances. Explain that at the shareholders meetings.

We're paying heaps of money to two guys to not be here!

He won’t go to the Cubs since they decided they’ve maxed out on salary. Could change but would make more sense for the Nationals, Yankees, Phillies, White Sox, or Dodgers. Would love to see the Jays act like an actual big market team, though.

They have 17M in payroll commitments in 2020. They should absolutely throw their weight around. Atrocious ownership group is atrocious.
