What’s up Doc? Going...going...gone? Is he or isn’t he? Will he or won’t he?

And the biggest question is...Where...if...does he go?

This question has to be racing around every baseball fan's, and I’m sure a few general manager’s minds.

Wouldn’t everyone love to have him?

Well Toronto does! Now, J.P. Ricciardi just has to get something done, spend some freaking money, surround him with winners, damn it! Sorry just dreaming!

The consensus seems to be that he will go to Philadelphia, which, would just solidify the hell out of an already outstanding, defending World Champion team.

Doc, ya wanna have close to a 2:1 shot at winning the big one and in doing so, bring some high prospects to the team that has been your home for the whole time you’ve been in the Major Leagues, and where you should, I believe, end your career!

Fine! Go to Philly!

Then return as Mats Sundin should have done, but in Sundin's case his true colours sure showed through. I heard something of a quote from him, back then, along the lines of “I still thought we could win.”  That was the biggest load of  s**t I’d ever heard.

But, if Doc does it right, and because he is a class guy, I believe he will go to Philly get it done and return with his ring to the Toronto Blue Jays when his contract expires. He will then finish off his role as a starting pitcher in T-Dot, and afterward, hopefully, end up in the organization, looking way down the road obviously, as a pitching coach.

This is perhaps a pipe dream of a Toronto fan, but, I’ll take the dream and leave the pipe!

Does he or doesn't he and where. Got the read?
