Since off-season has ended, I started a new thread. Old friend Adam Cimber gave up a game tying homer to Adolis Garcia who proceeded to show up the entire Jays team. He carried the bat all the way to first base, stomped on the bag then turned toward Jays bench and uttered some pleasantries. He then did a huge, exaggerated stomp on home plate drawing the ire of Jays fans who soundly booed him on way to the dugout. Garcia was then lectured to by the manager on the bench. Should be an interesting series between Jays and Rangers.

Justin Upton officially released now. Who picks him up?

I think he moves to the NL. Someone will give him a shot to backup DH/PH/OF/Platoon will an opportunity to play more. The Reds or Rockies seem like fits with the hope you can flip at the deadline.

Shapiro comments about Cleveland market.

Team president/CEO Mark Shapiro doesn’t seem overly stressed about the situation. “It’s not like we are a small market where if it gets towards the end of the contract and we can’t extend them, we need to panic and trade them for prospects,” Shapiro tells Sportsnet’s Shi Davidi. “I understand fans or maybe someone externally might think you need to extend these guys. I felt that way when I was working in Cleveland. I do not feel that way working in Toronto.” That’s not to say they won’t try at all, of course. “Those players are both under control for three more seasons (beyond 2022),” Shapiro said of both Bichette and Guerrero

Must admit more than a little satisfaction that Guardians extended while Yankees could not extend Judge nor could Red Sox extend Devers or Boegerts.

Probably more.. not an easy injury to heal.. and must be completely healed before he can throw.. So, a ramp up period will be needed.. That' two of the Pale Hose front line starters that are on the shelf from early in the 2022 season..

I would be even more gratified by Giolito’s injury if he weren’t on one of my fantasy league teams.

He topped out at 102 as well. I don't follow Japanese baseball so I didn't even know of this guy.

Watching the K video I see a ton of changeups/splitters, so his best pitch might not even be his FB.

Do you think the Gs have a shot at him in 3-4 years when he asks to come stateside?
