I was wondering about that too. I just kinda moved over to the main MLB thread in OT.

It was probably a casualty of how shitty these boards run during the playoffs. Reps, avatars and big threads all get removed. You'd think that wouldn't be necessary. I guess we're just not clicking on enough ads.

So with the old thread dead we can all just forget I proclaimed our playoff hopes dead a month ago right?

This season is officially ridiculous. Totally grateful that my flex pack was relatively backloaded with two games having been this week. Can't wait for the Canada Day game with us in the thick of it and Reyes back.

Season's still over.

The 'comeback' was all fools gold.

They were simply too far behind already.

I agree. The win streak was nice but the hole was huge. I still wouldn't bet any money on the playoffs. They really needed to go better than 5-5 in the games vs the East.

I think they can make it interesting, still so many factors but if they get hot again they can still make it.

When they were really down my thinking was that they would have to get to 5 games back by the all-star game to have a shot. I think they have that shot now.

But even before the season started I didn't think they would make the playoffs. I thought this year would be about competing, next year would be about playoffs. The starting pitching is still nowhere near good enough.

Yep.

I was really expecting Dickey and Johnson to be a solid top 2 in the rotation. Not as good as they were in the NL obviously but still solid #2 type pitchers. They haven't been. Morrow was awful when healthy. Buehrle is well, Buerhle. When his command is off even a tiny bit, he'll get drilled. Rogers has been fantastic so far though.

I figured the defense would be bad going into this season with Melky in LF and the downgrade from Escobar to Reyes (defensively). But the starting pitching was supposed to be better.

Agreed.
I really expected Johnson to have a great year (contract year). And I was hoping Ricky would bounce back.

My other beef is second base. Kelly Johnson (or Aaron Hill) would look pretty good now.

Dickey getting smacked around by the Twins. There's the low-point for me so far in this miserable season.

Already looking at 2014.

On the trade front, I haven't read anything but just speculating here. I could see the Jays taking a flier on Jemile Weeks of the Oakland A's.

Not sure what the A's would be looking for in return. But he went from the future at second base to an afterthought. A's called up Grant Green recently to team up with Sogard at second base, so it's not like their second base is solid, but if Green sticks, I could see them moving Weeks. I would assume it wouldn't be much that the A's would be asking. Maybe with Cecil's all star nod, they can deal him. Now Jemile Weeks can come up and totally sh!t the bed, but I think it's worth a shot. Or maybe I'm underselling Cecil's value. Cecil won't be a FA until 2017 and Weeks won't be until 2018...

I sometimes hate this team so much. I will never abandon the Jays but goddamn...

- Another loss to a good team they are chasing marred by tons of mistakes.
- Bickford might not be signing. One of their later tough sign hopefuls might not either.
- Lawrie shits the bed in his minor league game.
