After being traded from the Blue Jays to the Astros, pitcher Joe Biagini speaks to the media about the deal and, in typical Biagini fashion, jokes about his time in Toronto.

If the value of the guys they gave up is 'only' Derek Fisher, as many people have already said, I think they should have just held on to all of those guys as there was no urgency to move any of the three players. The obviously feel it's worth it.

I don't think it's wrong to go out and get a player if you really like him. My issues with it are:
1. You still shouldn't overpay to do so.
2. I don't think they're targeting the right players.

Hopefully the doubters, who are the vast majority including me, are proven wrong.

They were also pretty excited to land Brandon Drury and everybody thought they knew some secret information about unlocking his potential. Turns out he's a utility infielder that can't play shortstop and is an even worse hitter than we could have feared.


Shitkins hasnt landed one diamond in the rough yet.

I think overall they have drafted pretty well, but their ability to trade and get useful players is close to zero.

Fisher will be another sub .200 guy

What exactly is your point though; pointing to a crappy GM to justify another crappy GM?

Who finished top ten in the MVP race in the previous two seasons, and who we acquired in a package headlined by our top prospect?

Make no mistake, that was a stellar deal. But Donaldson was anything but a diamond in the rough.

Carson Cistulli recommended a yurt with rivulets of goat's milk across its major vertices but perhaps he'd settle for Derek Fisher.

BTW, don't be surprised if sanchez is back on the DL soon. He kept checking his finger tips. Astros probably don't give a crap if he goes on the DL, so don't have a problem with him jacking back up his curveball usage.

Pretty sure "Fairweather" fans don't post on the message board of a team that is 23 games under .500. Only masochistic diehards at this point.

I don’t know, the same could be said about those that engage in a logical fallacy known as an “appeal to authority” where you presuppose that a person that is in a position of authority, in this case Shatkins, can do no wrong and you make absurd excuses for their actions to simply justify the position that you hold. Both extremes are equally bad.

ATKINS: Fisher will fit perfectly into our youth movement.

ATKINS’ ASSISTANT: Uhhhh... boss. He’s 26.

ATKINS: No more old guys like Sanchez or Stroman.

ATKINS ASSISTANT: Uhhh... boss. They’re actually fairly close in age to Fisher.

ATKINS: Look at Fisher. If he’s like this in the minors just imagine his potential in a few more years in the bigs.

ATKINS ASSISTANT: Uhhh... boss. He’s been playing a ton in the minors for years.

(Days later)
