It actually is money as well. They can't give both what they want while also paying Saunders and Donaldson.

Rogers won't get stupid, they know it's price all over again, so they'll move on, votto?

You never would've been in that position in the first place, if you didn't put yourself in that position.

Re: Toronto Blue Jays

wow - do they have some younger guys that can fill in? i would say replace, but replacing either isn't so easy. yeah it's hard when your top guys leave due to years they want and money. they have so much money, you think they would stay to be a part of a winning team and a so called "family." nah. greed is good.

i hope the yankees or sox don't get either of them !

Thank God for Sports!

Re: Toronto Blue Jays

Rogers has as much or more money than any ownership in the league, it's not the money. The tribe has a payroll of $123M and going to the WS, yanks and red sox $210M. Why get stupid with 36, 37 year old players.

Does anyone believe Rogers would go over $150M?

Re: Toronto Blue Jays

Josh Donaldson expected to hit the disabled list

It’s been a bad start to the Blue Jays season. They’re 1-8 and most of those losses have come in very close games, making it all the more aggravating. Now they’re about to lose their best player.

Donaldson first hurt the calf over the weekend. He did it on a close play at first base which caused him to limp off the field. He shook that off and has played in the past three games, but he tweaked it again last night.
Bum legs can be far more annoying than one-run losses, and if Donaldson is hobbled for an extended period, it’s going to sap him. The Jays need to turn things around quickly, but it’s a long season and to be competitive, they’ll need him to be healthy. Good move to DL him, even if he could play through it.
______________________________________________

Damn, I didn't realize they were 1-8 on the season. They will turn it around in my opinion... too much talent not to.

I hate for this to be happening.

Gibby will get fired soon IMO, big mistake in the off-season letting EE walk.

Re: Toronto Blue Jays

Gibby just signed an extension too. It's not Gibby that let him walk. It's the new GM they put in while AA got the boot. Doesn't know how to negotiate.

The manager always ends up getting punished in the end, after tonight 1-9, terrible, that's how the business works.
