Just caught Tim and Sid and they had Granderson on the call.

I have to say, he's extremely well spoken, intelligent, and level-headed. I get a positive vibe that he'll be a great guy for the locker room.

Can’t believe Vladimir Guerrero will be wearing an Angels cap in Cooperstown. Come on man.

I thought we are trying to get younger and more athletic? Not sure if Granderson would fit the bill but I hope that there are more moves to be had. I wish they would just pull the trigger and get Yelich already. Young and controllable. Let's see how the slow-play pays off for the Jays.
Yelich traded to the Brewers




Brewers also gave the biggest free agent contract of the offseason.

Wow! At least the Yankees nor the Red sox got em.
That's a pretty price to pay for Yelich though.
Crazy overpay for Cain.

I agree he should go in as a Expo. With players changing teams more often they should be able to go in with many caps and not be forced to pick one.

If he comes during the Exhibition game again like he did with Pedro Martinez...would he boo? Pedro wore bosox

It's reported the Jays were one of the final teams in on Yelich, but sounds like they had to include Vlad Guerrero Jr, who they didn't want to part with.

Royals signed him and invited him to spring training...

I hope Goins has a good spring training...

Grichuk and Diaz were very cheap pick-up and have a chance to be everyday players. I think that's what Atkins is banking on

I would have given up Vlad Jr. Prospect does not equal success in the MLB.

Yelich is a proven star, plays OF, bats left, has power, some speed.

If the Jays sign Donaldson long-term, what does that mean for Vlad?

Agreed just talking about everywhere else. Teams are getting smarter not to sign crazy 10 Year Contracts...hopefully no strike is coming

If Jays sign Donaldson to long term contract, which I doubt, Vlad can plan outfield or first base.

How will this affect Osuna's season?
Would he be more motivated this season?
