Ratul you might as well move on and support this and stop being a negative nancy. there's nothing you can do about it unless you are AA himself and shitposting your replacements lmao. or go interview for the GM role itself.

do you shitpost about your exes and old bosses and colleagues all the time too? then the Blue Jays, an entertainment product, shouldn't have such a negative impact on you at all. lmao.

We have developed how many position players under Shatkins from the minor league system?

AA did solid of course and IMO built the worlds best team even though we lost to the Royals, but his window was short.

Bo, Vlad, Gurriel, Pearson, Hernandez, Biggio could be great for the next decade.

And the minor league still has so many guys about to come up, and this includes a guy like Martin who looks like he could be the real deal.

We built the right way for the first time since the 80s.


You've been sold snake oil my guy. Shapiro doesn't value pitching and defense. He values 'hope.' That's why he never gets the job done.


We don’t need to worry then. Shapiro isn’t the GM.

On defense: tomorrow's pivotal Game 7 is between the 21st ranked defense against the 23rd ranked defense. 21st? The Braves, AA's current team. 23rd? The Dodgers, AA's previous team.

22nd? The Jays. And the Jays even had more pitcher fWAR than the Braves.

The Braves and Dodgers do happen to be the best and second-best offensive teams in baseball, however, but offense isn't that important.
**** your asterisk.

Yeah, it’s not like fans to overreact to a tough loss. I wish I could get mad at us losing in the Alcs.

Hell yeah, all those moves AA made to build the Braves into what they are today. So much of his blood, sweat and tears went into that team.
9. Similarly, IF THOU HAST SPENT the entire offseason predicting that thy team will stink, thou shalt not gloat, nor even be happy, shouldst thou turn out to be correct. Realistic analysis is fine, but be a fan first, a smug smarty-pants second.
