Haven't been following much on the Jays latley but I know ST started on thursday.

What's their starting pitching supposed to look like this year?

General manager Ross Atkins said, barring injury, four of the five spots in the rotation are spoken for between Sanchez, Stroman, Matt Shoemaker and Clayton Richard, while rookie Ryan Borucki isn’t guaranteed a turn every five days.

“He’ll be competing for the fifth spot,” said Atkins.

There's a not insignificant chance Borucki is the best starter of the 5, so somewhat amusing he's the one who has to compete for the spot.

I don't understand why Richard is guaranteed a spot - he's been really bad in the NL, and I predict he'll be taken to the woodshed in the AL East.

If I had to choose between stroman and Sanchez on who to resign and be the leader of the staff in the coming years. I'd pick stro for sure. Sanchez doesn't throw enough strikes, more dominant but not near consistent enough. Love em or hate em stro is a leader of the team no question, a heart and soul guy. Pitching wise he probably doesn't top out as high as Sanchez does but I think he's more consistent and brings alot more to the team and organization and fanbase as a whole.

I know he's a slugger but should we be worried about Vladdys weight he's looking pretty obese for a young guy.

From watching this video, I learned what Vlad's favourite word is we should all get familiar with : Plakata

I think they have Vlad listed at 6'0, 200. He's more like 6'0, 260-270. He's closer to 300 than he is to 200, that's for sure. He's a BIG boy.

He also isn't 6'0". Surprisingly nimble for his size, and part of the impetus behind keeping him at 3B is that Vlad seems motivated to remain there, and that will involve more field work (and the attendant burning of calories, heh).

There is no question that he's the very definition of the Large Adult Son, though.
