winter_meetings_header2013

The Winter Meetings continue 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 continue this morning.

If you followed along yesterday, or read the recap, you’ll already know what to expect: a torrent of posts for the duration of the day, 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.

Stay tuned for some podcastery at some point over the next couple of days (uh… just maybe don’t stay that tuned for it, though), and thanks for your continued support.

  1. Thanks for all your great work, Stoeten.

    Bob Elliott wrote stuff down about the Jays interest in Logan Morrison, but makes it sound like it might be a bit more real than we’d have guessed – saying that the Jays offered Adam Lind for him: http://www.torontosun.com/2013/12/09/blue-jays-interested-in-marlins-first-baseman-morrison

    “The Jays have asked the Marlins about the availability of Logan Morrison.

    Toronto is one of six teams to inquire about the Marlins the first baseman, who hit .242 with six homers, 36 RBIs and a .709 OPS this season. Morrison, 26, started 78 games at first and is eligible for salary arbitration next year.

    The Jays mentioned DH-first baseman Adam Lind as part of trade talks. The Marlins said Lind was not a good fit for them, no matter the package.

    The Tampa Bay Rays are also in need of a first baseman since James Loney is looking for a three-year, $27 million US deal.

    The Pittsburgh Pirates are looking for a help as well, since free-agent Justin Morneau headed to the Colorado Rockies. Lind earns $7 million next season, which is too rich for the Pirates blood, although Pittsburgh may have an excess in starting pitching.

    And the Seattle Mariners may need a DH if either Raul Ibanez and Kendrys Morales don’t return.

    A number of teams have inquired about Lind but he won’t be moved him unless the Jays know they can replace his bat.”
