    No. Any trade value they owned - including the ability to take on salary - should have been used exclusively to upgrade the playoffs roster, not add prospects.

    We should have been asking them to add a guy like rodriguez oe joyce or one of their RP to that deal, not prospects.

    And Rodriguez and Joyce would have made us beat Cleveland?

    Its nice to play armchair after the fact. But according to Huntington they were hedging their bets and hoping to stay in the race so who knows if Joyce or Rodriguez was available. They wanted to shed Liriano's salary and got a good deal for Melancon. They still added players for their "playoff race" in Bastardo and LeBlanc. And according to them Hutch was their target.

    Yeah this has been a brutal spring after a pretty hard winter in Northwestern Ontario.

    I hate winter so much

    Jays didn't get to play? That's ok, we've got an exciting minor league system to follow!

    Buffalo double-header! Postponed.
    Vlad n Bo in New Hampshire! Postponed.
    Lansing double-header! Postponed.
    Pompey and Alford rehabbing in Dunedin! Suspended in the fourth inning.

    At least Pompey had nice day going up until that point.

    Move him to DH and call up Vladdy to play 3B. Also call up Bichette while we are at it :)

    Yes. It may keep the Jays in the equation to re-sign him, if they want him.

    The jays may be the best option for donaldson knowing they can play him at 1b/DH and have a quality 3rd baseman basically MLB ready.

    Apparently ice from the CN tower fell off and hit the Dome today. I wonder if they’ll have to shut down those gates for today

    Crap, possibly three days with no games? I'm going nuts here.

    Yeah it’s been annoying. Pretty funny that this happens after the Blue Jays Twitter threw shade at other teams for not having a dome earlier today :laugh: Tweet has since been deleted

    I was just coming here to see if any weather related travel issues could postpone the game today.

    This will be brutal if it's postponed again. Epecially for those of us who have no interest in the NHL playoffs and can't stand basketball.

    Just before I saw that tweet, I was going to come in and say this is why the Dome is great. Because you know the scheduled game will go on, regardless of the weather. Would have looked foolish to say so. LOL

    The ACC seemed to have a leak on Saturday that had some water on the court. Wonder if there are any issues like that for the Leaf game tonight.

    Now even the dome is on the DL after being hit by ice. Gosh, it’s not even just the on-field product that’s made of glass :sarcasm:

    The weather outside may be cold, buy Vladdy and Bo are keeping the fire warm so far. Both are hitting over .350 with OBPs above .420

    These guys can flat out hit.

    Would the hole present a danger for the game being played? I know there is a danger of more ice falling from the CN Tower and that is limiting the chances to fix it. But, in itself, would the hole be an issue for the game?

    Setting aside the danger potentially falling ice would present to patrons coming to the game, but I'm assuming they could close off the side of the stadium near the CN Tower and have fans enter through the other gates.

    Cancelled! Of course the Leafs playing down the road probably lowered attendance.

    Good. About time Skydome was renovated. The sightlines are horrible. And they need to bring the seats closer to tne infield.
