The reality is, fans are expecting more because once we've had a taste of the playoffs, we want to get right back in there. But outside of pitching, our key contributors on the field and at the plate are old, and injury-plagued. It's hard to build on that when you look at all the contenders that are so youthful and have depth.antigua1999 wrote: ↑Feb 14th, 2018 2:55 pmYou are right they did do something but i expected more. I wonder if they are scared to do anything big and face the wrath of the Blue Jay Faithful. Example I find it interesting that Donaldson keeps saying nobody has approached his team about a contract extension. Atkins and Shapiro have both said publicly they want him back so why not tell his management group officially that they are working on an extension and when we get the internal numbers worked out we will approach you.
They've made some value-additions that hopefully turn out to be good bang for buck, and if they pan out, then maybe you try to make a bigger addition come deadline. But you can't just throw our prospects for some big guns right at the start, and then have the season wind up with the same guys getting hurt and not contributing again.
