So this week baseball has been pretty monotonous and filled the Roy Halladay trade talks, which are becoming quite tedious and annoying. Not sure what more I have to add to the debate except the Jays better make out with some amazing guys if this deal is done. The rebuilding stage will be hard for Jays fans but hopefully it will head them towards the right directions for the organization. I think keeping the young guys healthy should be a big thing for them to work on for the coming years. They have built up decent prospects but too many of them seem to be heading to the DL (I know injuries happen, but cant you say they have had way too many there the past few years that raise some sort of concern?).
Aside from that, I went to the minor league game on Sunday. Since the AAA Yankees field is a mess, they moved their game against the AAA Mets to Syracuse, which was actually a pretty good game. Sergio Mitre pitched fantastic and looks to have earned his way to being the number 5 starter. Shelley Duncan also gave me his baseball bat which was something I was beyond thrilled about. Anyone who knows me knows the obsession I had in getting a black Louisville slugger, which was also the model that Duncan uses in AAA.
