Tuesday Bantering: Very little Jays news

MLB: Spring Training-Toronto Blue Jays at Baltimore Orioles Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

There isn’t much baseball news at the moment. No word from the players or owners about movement on getting towards a deal. The world is more interested with more important things at the moment.

Baseball America has a list of the Blue Jays minor leagues who were released the other day:

1B: Christian Williams, Jake Brodt, Kacy Clemens, Pedro Hurtado.

3B: Jesus Navarro, Jose Zepeda.

SS: Gustavo Gutierrez.

C: Francisco Ruiz, Junior Ramos.

OF: D.J. Daniels, Yeison Jimenez, Aldo Ovando, Hunter Steinmetz.

LHP: Juan Diaz, Junior A. Guzman, Warnel Valdez,

RHP: Brayan Aquino, Joneivy Polonia, Jorman Gonzalez, Juan Acosta, Juan Martinez, Miguel Olivo, Ronald Govea, Santos Moreno, Turner Larkins, Yunior Hinojosa.

I think the timing is less than ideal, I would have preferred the team paid them out until when the season would would end.

I was surprised that the Diamondbacks let go of Dalton Pompey, I would have thought he could have been useful in a shortened season with extra roster spots.

It isn’t baseball, but it is well done.

I’m saddened that things have gone this bad. I can’t imagine what it would feel like to be a black person in that country right now. I know ours is far from perfect, and I don’t want to minimize the problems we have, but we don’t have a leader calling for violence against his citizens, and I’ll take that as a start.
