Blue Jays Mailbag: What’s Struggling Slugger Jose Bautista’s Next Act?

The Blue Jays season is still going, and the mailbag questions are still coming! In this week’s instalment we look to the future—which might be the present!—as well as at the real causes for the miserable season this has been, where Jose Bautista goes from here, and more!

So buckle up! Let’s dive in.

If you have a Blue Jays question you’d like me to tackle for next week, be sure to send it to stoeten@gmail.com. As always, I have not read any of Griff’s answers.

Does a future team centered around Urena, Teoscar, Vladdy and Bo make you giddy?

It does not!

Oh, don’t get me wrong, I have all the time in the world for tales of Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s impending greatness. And Bo Bichette certainly looks like a top, top prospect in his own right. Those are two incredible building blocks that are already in place for the next great Blue Jays team.

The other guys? Uh… they’re nice and all, I guess. But if your team is “centered” around them, even with Bo and Vladito in tow, your team is probably going to be bad.
