My trip to Baltimore got cancelled sadly...but i am still happy,I got to see a my 1st ever baseball game this trip!



The jays always to this. Just when you think we're on a roll and going to make a serious push,we go on a losing streak.
16-0(hey pats fans) Are you serious��


Does anyone know what is wrong with Ricky Romero?



...and the injuries keep piling up for the Jays. Arencibia out for 6 weeks with a fractured hand.

Farrell says they'll go with Mathis and Gomes. Too bad....I was kind of hoping for a look at D'Arnaud....

Well if there's any silver lining for the Blue Jays, it's that hopefully AA no longer has delusions about contending this year and won't blow up one of the best farm systems in baseball to push for a one game play-in that half the American League has their eyes on. As much as Jose hates to lose, when you have that many key players on the DL (and most of your other players not named Encarnacion underachieving) it's not realistic to think you can make the playoffs in the AL East. Blue Jays fans are sick of hearing "this will be the year", but being impatient and doing something stupid would most likely backfire. I think AA's trades have generally come out pretty good so far, and he's built a good foundation of a team. Having said that, there is a lot of underachieving happening right now that's hard to understand. Drabek, before getting hurt, hasn't developed as projected, and Thames, Snider, Cooper etc have all had a hard time establishing any sort of consistency at the major league level, despite their obvious ability. How Ricky Romero has managed to regress as far as he has this season though is anyone's guess.

Hey Gretz's Mullet, I'm really impressed with $ball so far this season. Can't say I would have seen them contend like they are. I never followed the Vancouver Canadians that much, but how many of those kids are in the A's line-up? It seems so long ago that they were the A's single A team.

Really? it's only been two years. I guess Vancouver fans have been pretty fortunate, in that they've had the strong drafting A's and the now strong drafting Blue Jays as the parent club. I think there are 4 former Canadians on the Athletics: AJ Griffin, Sean Doolittle, Kurt Suzuki and Dallas Braden (presently injured). It doesn't seem like a lot but a solid number of A's were acquired in trades. One guy I remember seeing and loving at the Nat one time was Michael Choice, their 2010 1st rounder. He'll make it at some point, no doubt. Keep in mind that the C's are short season A (A-), so a lot of the elite prospects skip that level altogether. There are a few A's draftees that never even played A- ball, eg: Cliff Pennington.

So who else here thinks that Mike Trout might win AL MVP? I think ROY is a foregone conclusion, and if he doesn't win it unanimously then people need to start getting their votes revoked. But the guy leads the AL in batting average (3rd in OBP), and only Ortiz, who has a harder case being that he doesn't play the field, leads him in OPS. Trout also leads the league in stolen bases, and for you advanced metric fans, he's the league's Wins Above Replacement leader at 6.2 (leading David Wright's 5.5, highest pitcher is Verlander at 5.1), despite only having played in 78 of the Angels 100 games. For all the hype around Harper, it's Trout who has really made the difference this season between the two. Also, unless the Rangers can land a big time pitcher before the deadline, I don't think they'll be able to hold off the Angels in their division, and I maintain what I posted recently that I think the Angels will win the World Series this year.

On a related note, I'm sick of seeing ESPN's panelists fellating Miguel Cabrera every time they show a highlight of him. "He's the best hitter in the majors for sure, everyone else is fighting for second" etc. Yes, he is good. But they talk like that's an established and indisputable fact. Really? He's better than Votto, whose OPS is 100 points higher and who's getting on base at an otherworldly .465? You can honestly say Cabrera is hands down better? What about McCutchen, whose slash line is better in all three spots despite not having one of the league's premiere home run hitters right behind him? Or Trout, who's certainly young but with better numbers and some speed on the basepaths to turn singles into doubles and doubles to triples? It's so stupid to hear these guys spout their opinions like they're fact, when there'd be a good set of real fans (not just sycophantic studio guys) who would put up a good dissenting argument.

Tough to vote against him GM, at least to this point of the season.

Refresh my memory, didn't Freddie Lynn win ROY and MVP in the same season?

Trumbo has been excellent, but Trout is definitely the bigger story and more significant contributor, and this is reflected in their player value stats: Trumbo is a solid 3.3, but Trout is a league leading 6.2. This is partly because Trout plays a more challenging position and far better (Trumbo definitely a below average fielder). But Trout also has better slash numbers, and is also a complete pain in the neck on the basepaths. Trumbo has slightly higher power numbers, but is also hitting in an RBI slot, while Trout has to lead off. Add to that the fact that Trout is a rookie and isn't even 22 yet, while Trumbo is a 26 year old power bat who spent 6 years in the minor league system, and I think it's clear that Trout is the more remarkable story.

Traded for Brad Lincoln of the Pirates.

Looks to be a starter with upside. 4-2 with a 2.73 ERA. Currently in the minors (was on the 40-man roster). Only 25, i believe he was the 4th overall pick in 2006. Don't quote me on that however.

I am a baseball fan but I don't know everything about it.
But doesn't it seem that the blue jays got ripped off in the two trades they made.
Snider has been great since he got called up. Brad Lincoln seems good but we need starting pitchers



I would like an opinion on this from a baseball expert
Gretzky'a mullett,what do you think about those trades?

I don't know much about most of the players in the MLB because there is too many, but I enjoy seeing the reactions and opinions of Jays fans on their forum. Looks like, they didn't really care for Thames. One more day? Big trade coming tomorrow? maybe?

I actually think Brad Lincoln is a very promising pitcher who should be in the Blue Jays rotation next year, which was undeniably an area of need this season even before 60% of it got hurt. The Jays had been very patient with Snider, who I've always felt was an MLB calibre player, but decided they had to deal from a position of depth to fill a need. So while I always wanted to see Snider do well for Toronto, I don't mind this trade. I think this probably indicates that the Jays (accurately) saw their outfield as being very crowded while their pitching ranks were very thin. I'm not so sure about the Thames deal though, seems to me the team kind of sold low on him, but he was having a really lousy season and seemed to me to have no plate discipline at all, so it's possible that the few flashes of strong play Jays fans have seen from him are blinding them to some major holes in his game and they tend to overvalue him; he's also a below average defensive player. The team probably thinks Anthony Gose will be in the majors full time next year (and he's definitely a higher ceiling guy than Thames), and is most likely to try to extend Rasmus at a reasonable rate for next year too, so I guess these guys were seen as being expendable. Now with Romero, Morrow, Drabek, Happ, Alvarez, Lincoln, Cecil and Hutchison (plus anyone currently in the minors who takes a major step in spring training), the Jays seem like they'll have enough useful guys to try and carve out a decent rotation. A few reclamation projects in that mix for sure, like Happ and really also Lincoln, who probably was not projected as a middle reliever when he was chosen in the first round, but I think it's clear that if nothing else, AA has recognized where the problem areas are and is willing to make difficult decisions to fix them.

EDIT: Then again Brad Lincoln could be just another Bryan Bullington.

Hunter Pence is now a Giant! Basically this move serves notice that the Giants aren't going to let the Dodgers try to bolster their way past them, especially after LA nabbed the other available Philly outfielder, Shane Victorino. I have tickets for the matinee vs the Mets on Thursday, so hopefully Pence is playing that day and we get to have a look at him.

I'm a little biased, but I think on balance the Giants did better than the Dodgers on this one. The Giants strongly needed more hitting from their corner outfielders than they were getting from Blanco or Schierholtz (Melky is, of course, a beast). It also probably allows Pagan to move back up to the leadoff spot. Conversely, the Dodgers probably had a greater need of a middle of the rotation starter than yet another outfielder, depending on Ted Lilly's status, and haven't gotten one. The Hanley Ramirez trade is a high risk, high reward move for sure, but I think the Giants did well to get Hunter, and despite having dropped a sweep last weekend (believe me, the mood in SF was sombre) are still probably the best team in the NL West.

I have Pagan, Zito, and Bumgarner on my Yahoo Fantasy team, a 20 team league....
So, that mean's I'm biased for the Giants too ;)

Also what happened to the Phillies? Cliff Lee is struggling, Halladay's 4-6 and now they're 12 games below .500 and they need to move roster pieces. Never thought they would be the ones trading away stars to the Giants, who only couple years ago were floundering.

Also, Dempster to the already STACKED Texas Rangers! If they don't win this year I can't imagine what other moves they could do to finally get it done after 2 years of disappointment.

15-8 vs Anaheim(gave up 9 in 6th)

19-2 vs Chisox

21-8 vs Seattle

And by floundering you mean not the couple of years ago that they won the World Series, right? I'll give you one reason why the Phillies are in last place: injuries. Howard, Utley, Halladay all hurt for significant periods this year. Oh and another reason: they pay guys for past performances. Howard's contract is a disaster, Lee is still a good pitcher but his contract could be an albatross down the road, even Utley is eating up a lot of payroll considering that he's never going to be the same player with the shape his knees are in.

The Rangers are stacked in some aspects, but most definitely not in the pitching department. They were absolutely desperate for starting pitching with Lewis and Feliz both out for the year, and Holland trying to come back. Oswalt's been terrible for them too, and the only starters with any consistency they've had are Darvish and Harrison, hardly the reincarnation of Schilling and Johnson. In comparison, the Angels have a potential postseason rotation of CJ WIlson, Jered Weaver, Zack Greinke and Dan Haren, not to mention an offence boasting Trout, Pujols, Trumbo, Hunter, Morales...you want to talk stacked, that's the team to talk about. Heck, one bad week and the Athletics, who have been steadily gaining, could overtake the Rangers too. I have said it before and I will say it again, the Angels, not the Rangers, are the powerhouse of that division.

I was surprised with myself for grabbing him in our league, being that I dislike him so much, but he's been pretty solid for me. I remember thinking earlier this year that for a team like the Pirates, AJ could really be an ace, and was probably himself thinking along those lines when he agreed to go there (if I recall he had to waive NTC to go to Pittsburgh). Well as it happens, Pittsburgh has been better than expected this year, but so has AJ, most definitely pitching like a no. 1 guy. I think that's always been the most frustrating thing about Burnett, that when he's got "his best stuff", he's as dominating as any pitcher in baseball: great fastball, devastating off-speed pitches and ability to locate both. But so often he doesn't have it.

Holy Bajeezus did anyone else realize that Jered Weaver is 14-1? The guy should be a heavy frontrunner for the Cy Young. Considering that I think Trout should win the ROY and MVP awards, that would make an Angels sweep for the year.

In the NL, I think it's less cut and dried: Dickey would've been the strongest candidate but has taken a serious dip since the All Star Break. Matt Cain will get a lot of looks too and his NL leading WHIP, and strong K and ERA numbers will help, not to mention his perfecto. Johnny Cueto might also swoop in as a bit of a darkhorse too, and Strasburg would be in the conversation were he being allowed to pitch a full season. Atlanta's Craig Kimbrel has absolutely sparkled in the closer role, but this is probably a year where the strong starters performances preclude a closer from winning the Cy. I think Andrew McCutchen should be the NL MVP, and Wade Miley should win ROY, not Harper.

So in my other fantasy league we have decided to do a weighted keeper system, meaning the worse your record, the more keepers you get. Since my team is absolutely horrible with a record of 59-91 i get to keep 5 players(3 batters, 2 pitchers)

I for sure am keeping Kemp and McCutchen for batters. Then I will probably keep Haren, even though he has struggled a bit this year, but he is still pretty young. Also acquired James McDonald in a trade in hopes to possibly keep him. My other options are Lee, Kennedy, Burnett, Dickey.

So for my 3rd batter I was wondering who you guys think will have the brightest future.

-Will Middlebrooks
-Starling Marte
-Yoenis Cespedes
-Desmond Jennings
-Jesus Montero

Keep in mind that I don't need the guy who will be the best next season, but more 3-4 years down the road, if this pool does infact last that long.

Been there since the mid 70's, there has been plenty of room the last 20 years or so B)

The Pirates, Royals, Jays, have all been farm teams for the last 20 years. The Mariners have for the last 10. Good to see the Pirates doing well, that was once a very good and proud MLB franchise.
