  1. I’m a big AA fan overall, but something that has been bothering me about AA’s approach to filling left field since the beginning of the season, which became 10 times more troubling once the Snider trade happened. Why couldn’t AA acknowledge that talent matters – especially when Snider was on his last option year – and on that basis Snider MUST have first shot? The business is winning and developing your high-ceiling talent (or giving them the chance to develop), not giving your lower-ceiling talent priority just because they have managed to put together a run of 100-200 good at bats. I really hope Snider takes off in Pittsburg and AA takes the lesson to heart, because it’s not going to be the last time in the next couple years the situation is going to occur. (And to be clear – I’m not saying I believe Snider will ever realize his perceived potential, just that if AA does this again and again, it could be REALLY costly).

  2. I used to live in the Cincinnati area; “acrost” is, like, really common there.

  3. Enjoyed the comments on the construction of a team and how the bull pen should be last thing to build – its true. AA has spent way too much time here.

    • WRONG!!!! You want to entice a top starter to sign as a free agent with what we had??? Good luck with that. With a good young pen you can go to a top starter as they know when they leave the game is safe!!

      • Flys in the face of the podcast, and what I believe to be true. Exactly when did you ever see AA try to entice a top starter ? You know the answer, and he would be changing any time soon. Also don’t know if you’ve noticed but the whole bullpen has been overhauled twice since AA took over 2 years ago. The Good luck isn’t required as we arn’t building a pen to entice anyone.

  4. No exciting deadline deals + Trading Travis Snider for a relief pitcher + losing 4 in a row = most depressing DJF podcast on record.

  5. Shitty Jays + No Interesting Moves = Once Weekly DJP Podcast

  6. I have to say, I think AA really stepped in it on this Snider deal. There is a saying that if management takes into account what the fans want in making moves, they willl soon be sitting with them. That is true to an extent. You do, however, have to take into account fan reaction at some level as they DO pay your salary.

    Now Im not saying a team should go the Denver Bronco route and commit suicide by playing a QB like Tim Tebow just because the fans wanted him, but in swapping a fan favorite in Snider for a nondescript relief pitcher, AA should have realized the backlash the jays would face.

    Even then, when you really make the team better, fuck it….take the backlash…but when you dont really improve the team all that much, and are basically making a swap of players with potential…that move should give one pause when the guy you are getting rid of is beloved and carries with him an inordinate amount of fan love.

  7. At some point I think you should just go with Roman numerals.

  8. Parkes was actually pretty funny
