The old face of the franchise, and the new one, together for the last time?
This team isn’t winning because it’s divided and truly needs to be separated.
If you were to see inside the dressing room as I have many times this year, you would notice the way the lockers are allocated.
Wells is beside Hill, Millar and Scott Rolen, while Rios is beside Scutaro, Chavez and Bautista, while most of the pitchers Scott Richmond, Downs, Cecil, League and so on are on the far side of the room from Doc’s locker, which is beside Lyle Overbay’s and Johnny Mac’s, odd.
Obviously this team smiles on the field when it wins, but it is not a unified team.
All the trade talks surrounding Halladay add up to one thing.
The Jays totally revamping.
If they move Doc, trading the best pitcher in major leagues, then Scott Rolen, Marco Scutaro, and Lyle Overbay, who are all free agents at the end of this year, should go as well.
The young guns Aaron Hill and Adam Lind along with young pitching standouts Ricky Romero and Brett Cecil become the faces of the franchise coupled with the numerous up-and-comers they will acquire.
Who better than Cito Gaston to mentor a young group of future stars?
J.P. Ricciardi and his big nose will obviously get the boot after this, and good riddance, Get someone in here who will spend some money!
In this division of Boston and New York’s $200 million pay rolls, the Toronto Blue Jays, whose pay roll is around $80 million, are going to be hard pressed to be competitive.
Maybe a realignment of the division is in order?
Damn right it is!
Or else this Toronto team is going the way of the extinct Montreal Expos, bye bye Canadian baseball!
I suppose this is just a rant from a pissed off Torontonian who is fed up with all of the Toronto teams sucking it!
Can someone please get something done that actually builds for the future!
