    Jays could have just signed Austin Jackson and not picked up Saunders…. LF covered although not providing the normal pop for a LF. He’s more or less Ben Revere with slg, with a lower BA, but more OBP.

    And you would have a fantastic defense in both the infield and outfield.

    • Steve-O

      He’s more or less Ben Revere with slg, with a lower BA, but more OBP.

      Ben Revere (2014-2015)
      .306/.333/.369 OPS:.702

      Austin Jackson (2014-2015)
      .261/.310/.364 OPS:.674

      Austin’s career OBP is wildly inflated due to a .377 (!) he posted in 2012.

      With that tepid OPS, he’s not a viable LF option for anyone.

    Soundcloud isn’t loading for me. The site has also been freezing up (not responding) on my Surface Pro 3 as well. The page actually had to refresh in the middle of me typing this. Had to type in MS Word. Not sure if it’s the site or it’s on my end but I hardly ever ran into problems on the old site.

    Eric Thames in the outfield?
    Like they said, have you seen him lately? Looks like he not only lives in the gym…he’s EATEN it! Massive shoulders and arms like cannons.
    Great for a first baseman, maybe…
