winter_meetings_header2013

The Winter Meetings begin on today in Orlando, so it seems like now is the perfect time to do a little housekeeping to get you setup for all the delicious coverage around here that will begin this morning.

If you’re a longtime follower, you’ll already know what to expect: a torrent of posts for the duration of the meetings, featuring every manner of Jays-related rumour out there. Assuming, y’know, the Jays actually give us anything to work with– which I’m not exactly concerned that they won’t, given all the heavy lifting that’s still left to do in terms of constructing the club’s roster for 2014.

And how will you know when a new on goes up? Aside from constantly refreshing the site (which you may be doing anyway, if you’re participating in the discussion in the comments) you’ll see every new post tweeted out as soon as it’s live by joining the 20,000 strong monkey army following @DrunkJaysFans on Twitter. Alternatively, you can have a link to every new post sent straight to your news feed if you join the… uh… considerably less strong number of folks who like DJF on Facebook!

Remember, though, that the DJF Twitter is mostly just a feed setup to pretty much give you only links to the posts, with the occasional additional bit of “ICYMI” prodding. However, you can follow me at @AndrewStoeten to get all the same links, plus a whole lot of relevant re-tweets, fun stuff, and someone who’ll actually interact with you more than ol’ DJFBot. If you’re into that.

While you’re at it, follow our entire stable of friends and contributors, as well:

Of course, you’ll also want to follow @theScore, download theScore app, and be sure to check out our MLB Off-Season Tracker, too!

And there’s still more! Because I’d be remiss if I didn’t encourage you to also subscribe to the places where you can find our content in its various multimedia forms: the DJF Podcast on iTunes and on SoundCloud, the Getting Blanked Podcast on iTunes, and on SoundCloud for it as well.

Stay tuned for some podcastery at some point over the next couple of days, very possibly, and thanks for your continued support. Should be a fun week!

  1. Happ did have some good innings and starts last year. But there were some bad innings too. Do you feel that he has received enough of a chances to prove himself for a fifth starter role or has he had enough chances already? What do see the role of a fifth starter 8-10 wins and a 4.20 era?

    • He has an option left so I’d keep him for depth. Unless he’s a piece of a trade in which case see ya later.

      Can’t go wrong!

      • He has an option left but I’m pretty sure he can’t be sent down without his permission.
        Could be wrong though.

        • You can’t send him down without his consent as he has over 5 years of MLB Service.

          This leads to all likelihood he’s being shopped. We”ll aquire a mid to upper tier pitcher somehow and use an inhouse option as our fifth starter.

    • 10 wins with a 4.20 ERA sounds a lot like our 1-4 guys as well. 2013!

    • I think he’s shown enough glimpses of quality that I’d like to keep him for depth.

  2. My boner is ready for some serious rosterbation.
    Merry Winter Meetings. And to all a good week.

  11. Imagine if AA doesnt do anything during the winter meetings (i’m sure he’ll do at least some minor moves). Fans are going to lose their minds, and probably my own from the angst lol.
