    I took it as Cox using his 20/20 hindsight vision to say what a large mass of people are saying.

    I dislike him, and he just said what peoples opinions are. Meaningless "Yeah they should have done that thing back then that a lot of people are saying! Look at this stat!"

    We don't know what the ticket sales would be if they traded Donaldson in December. They could be 30th in the league, we never will know.

    Down 8-2 inthe bottom of the 9th and the Jays beat the scrappy Rays 9-8.. I was actually debating whether or not to turn the game off, but in the end got to see an amazing finish!!

    Go Jays Go!!

    Kindly quote tweet where you (or any) Jays fans were saying they should have traded Donaldson last offseason, or even better, the one before that. I guess it was very predictable that Tulo would blow up how ankle running bases, your three best pitchers would all disintegrate, your MVP would fall apart, and your all star closer would become a criminal. Hindsight analysis is fun.

    I just said it and you just quoted me already.

    FWIW, I DO talk to other people in real life, other then on the forums here but I will see if I can scroll back through the 132 pages of this thread to appease you when I get the time to see if I can find it here too.

    I do agree with you though that it is something they should seriously look at for the future of the franchise. He's one of their better bargaining chips and without moving someone young and under control for years, makes the most sense to move.
    From October 6th 2017, I was replying to eyemissgilmour's post:

    If they are thinking about managing their assets properly, think about replenishing the system so that when guys like Bichette and Guerrero are ready, you are not looking at a 35 year old Donaldson on the corner with wonky knees and fading power at the plate.

    No realistic fan can say this team is contending over the next 3 seasons, so signing Donaldson (for the kind of money he will command) makes zero sense.
    We good?

    Man don't quote Damien Cox lol I can't believe you even follow that guy. He's captain hindsight and such a hack of a journalist it's absurd.

    That being said, I do know that some fans were calling for this team to just completely blow up the team following last season. I'd say two years ago, most people were saying that Osuna and Sanchez were the only big league players they deemed to be untouchable, but after last season I know some people that were pushing to trade Osuna while his value was still pretty high.

    But rataylor makes a good point. Nobody could have possibly predicted just HOW bad this season got. It was like everything that could go wrong, did go wrong in May/June.

    What a game last night though. I know it's a relatively meaningless game but I think it's pretty important for the team to win some big games like this in September, when you have all the young kids with the ball club getting big league experience. Some huge at bats last night from the youngsters. Really encouraging to see. Hope it's a sign of big things to come!

    That game was a big loss for Tampa, 6.5GB in the wildcard.
