    Love it.

    That would be a fun line-up to watch in 2019.

    But let’s be honest, Jays fans ‘are fools’ for the hope the org has been selling them. Until the losses begin to mount, the Toronto fanbase will just be happy that baseball is back. There will be the odd snarky call made to Jays Talk by the end of April. By the end of May, the fanbase will lament their team’s placement in the AL East while not connecting the org’s frugal ways to their place in the standings. The fanbase is exactly why the org can offer up hope in lieu of talent, while continuing to jack prices with virtually no backlash.

    The org can get away with it. You can’t blame the jerks in business suites who make these decisions if the fans don’t even try to voice dissent. You can point an accusing finger at the fans who don’t question the org’s decisions more critically.

    Great article, man.
