Really looking forward to Jansen. Glad Reid-Foley gets to start against an AAA caliber team. Preparing Martin to be a full-time catcher/infielder hybrid is a good call.

Jansen is legit, his numbers are heads and shoulders above any other minor league catcher the past two seasons, but for some reason he doesn't have the same hype as lesser catchers like Mejia.

I think it comes down to people don't understand what switched on for him to let him produce so well so are expecting the bubble to burst on him.

Gibby will finish the year as skipper and they’ll talk in the offseason. He’s been very candid about not having the energy to part of a rebuild, understanding they inherited him, and maybe they should bring in someone with fresh ideas. He’s been a complete class act and I can see him taking a job with Houston or Texas just to be closer to home. Really going to miss the guy; one of the few highlights the last two seasons.

I guess we can call McKinney a bright spot? We suck and he could use some stability to see if he can hit MLB pitching.

I do like seeing a guy bat choked up.

Way too early to call Mckinney a bright spot, but he has enough raw tools that maybe if everything goes right he could be a player.

McKinney is tied for 9th in bWAR. Tied for 6th in fWAR. Small sample sizes be damned, in this shit hole of a season I'm gonna call him a bright spot until he snuffs out and goes back to oblivion.

We're living in a world where Jose Bautista got an asset back in a trade in 2018 and Josh Donaldson won't. And the front office is monumentally fucking up the situation and they're not going to offer him a QO. One of the best players in franchise history will walk for nothing. Again. Amazing.

What was the rumored trade to St. Louis again last summer? I remember not liking it then but would definitely do it now.

Who's reporting they're not going to qualify him? And what other best player in franchise history did they let walk for nothing?

Susf. Sid sixeiro said Donaldson is justified in suing the Jays this offseason because of their massive massive improper handling of his injuries.

I’m not going to pretend I know the directive from the owners but I’m guessing there was a very heavy push to keep the team competitive.

Granderson to the Brewers.

No words on what the return is for either trade.
