Teaser and the Firecat

Forgive my lack of entries these days – I am bogged down with an exam season here at the University of Toronto that will see me hand in 7 things in 7 days.

Much a product of these stressful times, I’ve become sentimental.  Here you go, Blue Jays faithful – praise for Riccardi.

It was reported by foxsports.com at just before 2 am last night that the Blue Jays had met with Rafael Furcal’s agents.  In these troubling economic time the Blue Jays may be offering Furcal the stability of a multi year contract over the lure of a big, short term payoff.  Given the state of financial matters these days I can understand the allure.

If you can’t spent with other teams, JP, you may as well offer something that other teams cannot – stability. 

Sure, you may end up being burned, but there are few other options.

    2 am! Oh maybe Eastern Time. Furcal would add a great new dimension to the Jays lineup and middle infield, if cross-fingers, healthy. I still don’t know how we are going to afford him and have room to do anything else? Maybe J.P. has the okay on expanding the payroll?

    Good luck with finals.

    Not likely, Jeremy.
    All indications it would seem point to a reduced payroll in 2009. They Jays will have to be creative -trading away overpriced talent and luring players with long term security and contracts that favour players over the team.
