There isn’t a ton of Blue Jays news. We are less than three weeks away from opening day.
In the incredibly random department:
You legitimately cannot make this up. Tomorrow morning the #BlueJays clubhouse will feature a hypnosis comedian. If this is anything like the shows from university, it will end very poorly.— Gregor Chisholm (@gregorMLB) March 8, 2019
I’ll admit I am not a fan of ‘hypnosis comedians’. I don’t really see the humor in making people do embarrassing things.
I’m really liking Montoyo but stuff like this might make me change my mind:
Earlier this spring, Montoyo mentioned Travis/McKinney as options for the leadoff spot. With Travis hurt, asked him again today for an updated list of candidates. He mentioned Grichuk, Pillar and Teoscar Hernandez. #BlueJays— Gregor Chisholm (@gregorMLB) March 8, 2019
Of course my choice for lead off hitter is Pompey but I don’t think I’m getting my way. If he goes with Pillar, I’m going to revolt.
I still would like to see a trade. Open up a roster spot.
Ross Atkins basically said the #BlueJays are done shopping. What you see is what you get for the current 2019 roster. Left the door slightly open by saying: "More likely if an acquisition occurs, it will not be free agency, it’ll be a trade."— Gregor Chisholm (@gregorMLB) March 8, 2019
We have two games today, both are against the Pirates. One in Dunedin and one in Bradenton.
In Dunedin we have many of the regulars. And Vlad.
In Bradenton we have fewer of the regulars but we have Dalton Pompey and that one will be on MLB.TV.
