Made it home. Had a very good time in Cooperstown and Toronto (with a stop at Buffalo for a Bison’s game).
It sounds like Marcus Stroman wasn’t exactly thrilled to be going to the Mets. I’ll admit I was surprised that the Mets wanted him, I figured they would be in rebuilding mode. And, of course, he could use a better infield than the Mets put out there. I can imagine Marcus thought he was going to a contender and ends up with a 5 games below .500.
I know there has been a lot of complaining about the trade, but I’m not hating it at the moment. We got someone who should be in the rotation next year and a guy who could be at the top of our rotation in a few years.
I do hate all the whispers about how Marcus was a crappy guy, crappy teammate. Seems like it is talking about someone behind his back when you bring it up after he’s gone.
I will mess watching him. He is a great reminder that baseball is entertainment.
It sounds like the dealing isn’t done:
#BlueJays GM Ross Atkins not planning on slowing down ahead of Wednesday’s Deadline: “We have some very successful pitching. There are still members of the Toronto Blue Jays that teams have a lot of interest in...I’m running out of sleep. I can’t imagine possibly being busier.”— Alexis Brudnicki (@baseballexis) July 29, 2019
Tonight’s lineup. Bo Bichette bats 6th and wears #11. Freddy Galvis moves over to second base. I’d much rather Biggio play there as much as possible, but I’m not going to complain too much about one game.
