At least there will be no illusions about rebuilding. Some US media have been saying Rogers wouldn't want to rebuild, and I believe that, so that's why a team this bad forces management's hand. As things stand, of all the injured players, only Sanchez seems close. Donaldson and Tulo just left to Dunedin to keep rehabbing there, so they sound as if they are two weeks or so away.
Bonus: Even Shillner will have to admit to what has to be done.
Shillner just said that the Jays are 6 games behind a playoff spot with 139 games to go. He said that the tide will turn.
The tide will turn?
Six games behind at the end of April can also mean 30 games under at the end of the season.
This reminds me of Mary Chestnut, the Civil War diarist - she was a southern aristocrat. In December 1864, with the South being badly beaten, she wrote
"The deep waters are closing over us. And we are – in this house – the outsiders at the time of the Flood. "
