Alex Anthopoulos Gets A Pass For Disastrous 2013, But 2014…

Since taking over as VP and General Manager Alex Anthopoulos has done a lot of positive things for the Toronto Blue Jays.  He rebuilt the gutted minor league system, regained our lost presence in Latin America and placed a renewed emphasis on player development.  He made a few shrewd acquisitions (Colby Rasmus, Yunel Escobar & Brandon Morrow trades can all be argued for) and all in all has had a successful tenure.

A lot of talk surrounding the failed 2013 Toronto Blue Jays campaign wrongly falls on the shoulders of manager John Gibbons.

This piece is not an argument to keep or fire him but a dose of reality is needed.  The manager cannot keep an entire pitching staff healthy nor can he stop our shortstop and third basemen from getting injured.  The manager cannot help an outfielder regain the hitting form he flashed while under the influence of PEDs and he would be hard-pressed to replace a struggling backstop when there is no replacement in sight.

In short this season’s lack of success falls directly at the door of the man who pieced this roster together.

Alex Anthopoulos has to own it.

But saying that I am also willing to give him a pass.  We have all heard the saying ‘fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me”.  Basically this is his roster, he knows the players and he knows the strengths and weaknesses.  There are no more excuses heading into 2014.  Changes will be needed.

There are a few things we should be able to count on and a few things that definitely need to be addressed if we hope to compete for the playoffs and ultimately a championship.

1) Our offensive line-up should be strong going forward.  If healthy (150+ games) our core of Jose Reyes, Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Bautista and Colby Rasmus form a strong nucleus to which you can build a stellar line-up around.  Brett Lawrie has to improve and has looked much stronger since the All-Star break.

I am still not sold on Adam Lind and the addition of a meaningful left-handed bat could go a long way but again there might not be much available in terms of free agency.  It is doubtful the Jays will be players for Jacoby Ellsbury who would be a nice addition and a guy who could relegate Melky to the bench or another team.

2) Catcher has to be an area of great concern.  J.P. Arencibia has been bad offensively and worse defensively.  Being both bad on offense and defense is a deadly combination for a baseball team with desires of ya know, winning.  You can live without one or the other but the Jays either need a smart hitter with some on-base skills or a defensive stalwart who can make the pitching staff better.

3) We cannot count on any meaningful innings or production from Brandon Morrow, Josh Johnson and Ricky Romero.  This one is pretty obvious and something I am certain AA is already well aware of.  All three have proven they can get big league hitters out and if they could stay healthy and just pitch to career levels it would be a huge bonus.  But that is a huge if and the starting rotation needs a lot of help.

4) R.A. Dickey cannot be the staff ace in the American League East.  I hate throwing around the term ‘ace’ maybe we had been spoiled by Roy Halladay’s magnificent Blue Jays career but an ace Dickey is not.  He is definitely not useless like some would suggest but has been mediocre to say the least.  Read in-depth piece on Dickey here.  On a championship contender Dickey can be no better than the teams #3 starter in my opinion.  This is a tough one to get around in a weak free agent market and no prospects really left as trade chips.

As it stand now heading into spring training next season I would be comfortable saying R.A. Dickey is our #3 and Mark Buerhle (assuming he doesn’t ask for a trade) is our #5 starter.  After that all bets are off.  Current Blue Jays Josh Johnson, Brandon Morrow, JA Happ, Todd Redmond, Drew Hutchison, Kyle Drabek, Sean Nolin and Ricky Romero will all have to audition for a spot (preferably near the back of the rotation).

The Blue Jays need to throw a little cash around and look to lock up at least two of the big ten.  Preferably one arm and one left handed hitter but ideally two arms you can pencil into the rotation with at least one you can pencil in above Dickey on the depth chart.  Basically we need an ace and a big league starter capable of eating innings.

Which leads us to my last point but certainly not least…

5) Money from Rogers cannot suddenly become scarce.  This is a team that is built to win now and has forfeited even the semblance of a half-way decent farm system to do so.  We have jettisoned numerous top prospects and some of whom are looking like they can become productive big leaguers, soon.  I don’t want to see bad contracts signed just to sign someone of note (i.e. Prince Fielder) but the Blue Jays need to show baseball they are willing to do whatever it takes to field a winner.

Blue Jays blogger Wes Kepstro took a decidedly harsher view on whether Mr. Anthopoulos gets a pass.  Read his very in-depth piece here!

Here are the top free agents available as per MLBTR:

1) 2B Robinson Cano, 2) CF Jacoby Ellsbury, 3) C Brian McCann, 4) SP Matt Garza, 5) OF Shin-Soo Choo, 6)  SP Hiroki Kuroda, 7) SP Ervin Santana, 8) A-hole AJ Burnett, 9) OF Carlos Beltran.  Others: Hunter Pence, Mike Napoli, Josh Johnson, Tim Lincecum.

The Blue Jays need to throw some big money around and actually land one or two of these guys.

What do you guys think?  What did I miss?  What do the Jays need to do?

    Another mistake, therefore, is to size your curtains too short or too narrow.

    For example, you could offer them a window treatment with matching pillows and a matching headboard.

    When you consider that there have already been 
    over 50,000,000 abortions,  and then you consider how many of those lives were snuffed out for convenience (in most cases) that were
    female, it pretty much eliminates the concept of
    this being related to women’s rights. Fine Mediterranean dining is offered

    As a natural and a highly effective weight loss supplement, Garcinia Cambogia can be expected to provide you with
    adequate assistance in your attempt to easily get your
    target weight. It is also to be noted that weight loss is easy to achieve but to maintain it is always difficult.
    These can come from a number of herbs like, jujube, gooseberry, guduchi,
    Garcinia cambogia, tomatoes, plum, aloe vera, green tea, and many more.

    Since the effectiveness of Garcinia Cambogia is not
    dependent on any particular diet regimen, individuals can eat whatever they want within reasons.
    You can get Garcinia Cambogia Extract in some health outlets.

    allows our bodies shed extra pounds rapidly and also this contributes to gradual weight
    loss. Green tea has tons of benefits besides helping with weight
    loss. I noticed at this point that Garcinia Cambogia Extract behaved much like a
    mood elevating medication. It has been on for three seasons plus simply has been renewed for its fourth season. Supplements made from green tea can cause stomach problems,
    growth problems, hyperactivity, behavioral disruptions,
    insomnia, mineral deficiency and other serious problems in kids.

    I think AA still has to take a fall for a couple of important decisions. First was hiring Gibbons. It’s not that Gibbons is good or bad, he’s just the wrong kind of manager. Gibbons ran the most ragged spring training I have seen in years and that was reflected in performance in the early months. Second, AA allowed all the players to go to the useless WBC and wasted valuable team building time. Finally, losing two of the past three years top draft picks is inexcusable and will have a bad impact down the line. AA is a bargain hunter and the time for bargain hunting is past. AA and Gibbons both should go.

    Our payroll is such that we have little to no hope of landing any of those free agents. Right now, merely re-signing our arbitration-eligible players would take us to the level of out 2013 payroll, and that doesn’t include picking up the options on Janssen/Lind (or attempting to keep Johnson).

    Unless Rogers suddenly decides that they want to up payroll to $170m, or we somehow manage to dump a tonne of bad salary, we’re likely working on the margins this off-season, not for lack of intent but lack of options.

  87. 89 Idiot Fan August 20, 2013 at 9:08 am

    We should be better next season by default. No way Murphy’s law strikes again. Saying that we need to be players in free agency. Garza, Santana, McCann would be a nice start.
