  • What a surprise the #BlueJays not in on Rusney Castillo. Who wants a potential 4-tool OFer that will cost nothing but #Rogers money? 1 hour ago
  • Baseball needs to focus on shortening games. You should be allowed three total dugout "leaves" to visit mound, challenge etc. That's it. 2 days ago
  • I was tempted to live bet the Jays heavy after Melky hit that 2-run jack. I was that optimistic, glad I didn't. 4 days ago
  • @SoberJaysFan @dougiejays I agree. Gibby talks slow but he isn't dumb. Fans have really soured on Francisco but he still better vs R 4 days ago
  • @dougiejays @SoberJaysFan the only splits Gibby respects involve bananas and ice cream. 4 days ago
