    Yes, he's been outstanding. I'm actually planning on attending a Braves/Mets game at the end of August. Maybe I can catch a start of his...

    Makes you wonder how the Jays miss a kid like this. Atlanta seems to have good scouting and farm system.

    With the lack of support Stroman is getting he'll be gone as soon as he is a FA. They have young hitters and hopefully they start hitting but right now they couldn't hit a piñata even without the blindfold.

    he'll be gone waayy sooner. True he doesn't get run support but he's also, at times, pitched up muffins. I just think the Jays will tire of his antics long before FA

    Or it’s a way for the current TB ownership to apply pressure for a new stadium there - don’t they want one, too?
    Montréal might be being used as a pawn. I don’t want that to be the case, but it’s a possibility.

    It's more than a possibility. It's exactly what is happening.

    So the Jays trade Sanchez and Biagini to Houston for an outfield prospect. Tonight Sanchez goes six innings giving up no hits with six K's. Biagini and two other pitchers go the final three innings to complete a no hitter against Seattle.

    And the guy the traded them for (26 year old) lets a routine fly ball hit him in the face for an error and injures himself and is out of the game.

    The Blue Jays Gm is Chiarelliesque. Just awful returns for all the players he traded.

    The minute they brought in Mark Shapiro, they were doomed. He has zero history of doing anything productive with a baseball team. The Indians were terrible for most of his tenure. Choosing Shapiro over AA is laugh out loud hilarious. Oh well, a win for the Braves.
