Again do you even know what you are talking about? You are just making things up. So far the Jays have only lost Dickey and Cecil... But you are speaking in absolutes that Bautista, EE and Saunders are gone because the new FO has an agenda to get rid of them. Jays made Bautista at least 1 offer and EE at least 4 offers - doesnt sound like guys you want to get rid of.
But you can continue coming up with your conspiracy theories to stir pot as you try to trick everyone into thinking you are a "fan."
why do you keep saying I don't know what I'm talking about. I'm stating my opinion on the Blue Jays. Honestly if you knew so much you wouldn't be phillipmike behind a computer posting on realgm. You'd be in a front office somewhere.
Like I said it's my opinion on what is going on. The market for players took a huge dip especially for DH's as you can tell and if you have been listening to shows talking about baseball there saying the same thing. Why wouldn't you sign EE back? Where's the loyalty? Not like he's crap either he can put up 30 home runs in a bad season without a doubt. Not to mention his RBI's. Every time an offer was made to EE it was a low ball offer that he would have beaten if it were in any other market in any other year. Jays lucked out in not looking bad because they offered him the money he got but that's only because of the way the hitters market shaped up this year. Bringing EE would have shown loyalty at least. The dude has done a lot and to bring back such a significant Blue Jay would have shown that in fact Rogers does take care of their own.
First you say that Shapiro and Atkins want to rid themselves of AA's team and bring in their own players. Have a link where they said that?
To provide you with evidence that they only made 6 changes to the 25 man roster and 2 changes were past AA players you then say they only did it for a one year shot. Again have a link?
You dont know what you are talking about so you make things up. Dont hide your irrational hate for the FO by making things up to make them seem like something they are not.
I am not saying that i know more than you just calling you out on these awful and untrue blanket statements that you are making and trying to pass them off a fact.
Where's Edwin's loyalty. He wants to stay in Toronto and we offer him 80M over 4 years - one of the biggest deals if not the biggest for a 34 year old or older free agent got. If he wanted to stay in Toronto so bad then why didnt he take the offer? Because he was greedy and wanted more so he passed and couldnt get a better deal and settled for less in Cleveland when Toronto didnt want to play his games. Its Edwin's fault he isnt a Jay not Shapiro or Atkins.
I cant imagine what this forum would look like if we didnt sign Morales or Pearce so we can wait on EE for him to sign potentially sign elsewhere and we are sitting here on December 23rd with a signed TJ House and Jeff Beliveau. Edwin wanted more money so Jays went to plan B and C when they knew they werent going to give him more than 80M.
If the girl you asked to prom says no are you gonna wait for her to change her mind, no you find another date. Jays werent and were right not to wait for Edwin.
