Man alive, there’s not a whole lot in the way of Jays content out there at the moment. And any of it that’s remotely meaty, I kinda feel obligated to turn into a full post, when in earlier, newsier days, I might have just linked something about it here. So that’s what I’m gonna do. And here’s the rest.
Missed last night’s action? Parkes has got a king hell recap over at Getting Blanked.
Beyond the Boxscore has named Alex Anthopoulos their Executive of the Year.
Alex Speier of WEEI looks at the market for David Ortiz this winter, and while the Red Sox are the prohibitive favourite, he lists the entire rest of the AL as “not a fit,” except the Yankees (mostly for shits and giggles), the Mariners (if Papi would play for a non-contender), the Angels (longshot) and the Jays. Hmmmm.
FanGraphs reminds us that Brandon McCarthy is the awesome.
I’m loathe to link to something from Bleacher Report– and I’m certainly not going to read whatever nonsense their “writer” has come up with– but they make the suggestion that the Jays should go after Edwin Jackson. And while my immediate reaction is “fuck no!” However, after a little bit of contemplation I think I’d actually say, “fuck no! But… I dunno, maybe?”
The Baltimore Sun tells us that Jays assistant GM Tony LaCava, as was speculated, went in to interview for the Baltimore Orioles job earlier this week. I think it goes without saying that, selfishly, we all hope he gets the chance to stay here and finish what he and Alex Anthopoulos have started. Would be richly deserved, by all accounts, if he got the job, though.
The Outside Corner looks at the free agent market at second base and… wow, it really is weak, isn’t it? (Aaron Hill tops the list, by the way, followed by Kelly Johnson. I’d have those two reversed in a heartbeat.)
And… um… I guess that’s it.
