Well that’s… what it is.
Uh… the title of this post, I mean, which comes from here:
Hearing it’s “very reasonable” to think #BlueJays won’t make any moves before deadline.

Could it be merely a little bit of posturing from the front office, given the game of chicken supposedly being played at the moment between buyers and sellers over the prices on the relief market? I wouldn’t count it out. But I wouldn’t count out it being genuine… which would seem pretty pointless.
The main bullpen pieces are under control for next year, and even Adam Lind and Emilio Bonifacio can be kept beyond this year, so I wouldn’t cry if the club simply didn’t see the value in moving any of those guys. But is there honestly any reason why Darren Oliver and Rajai Davis, both free agents to-be, should be on this team come tomorrow? At the very least? Like… I understand the idea of holding to your values and not just helping a contender for the sake of it and taking back shit for the sake of it. But on the other hand… come on!
In the end though, whatever, I guess. You think it’s going to stop me from posting the Game And Trade Deadline Live Blog Threat post that I’ve got going in another tab? Fat chance!
