    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.
