Friday Bantering: Blue Jays stuff

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays-Workouts Nick Turchiaro-USA TODAY Sports

There was a little bit of Blue Jays news coming out of a Ross Atkins press conference.

I agree with this whole list:

I think Patrick Murphy could be a very useful power arm out of the bullpen. Sean Reid-Foley looked good in all but one appearance from the pen. I do like relievers who have a little ‘we don’t know where this pitch is going’ in them.

Merryweather looked terrific as a reliever but I’d love to see him start. Same with Hatch. Kay really seems like a starter to me.

Anyone with complaints will this list?

In the duh section:

It seems that the team doesn’t know what the budget will be next year just yet. Hopefully they will get to have fans in the stands.

He also mentioned that Vlad could play some third base next year, which I think is a stupid idea. Put him at first, spend every available moment of spring training working with him at first and let’s see what we have. This idea that they have to have more than one position seems to lead to poor defense at multiple spots. I get that Cavan can play several positions but just because you can doesn’t mean you should. I say that about bass guitar solos too.

This should have been done long ago:
