Found January 30, 2012 on The Fantasy Fix:
Ricky Romero (credits below) Looks like the Blue Jays are happy with the young starting pitching staff they have assembled as they did virtually nothing this winter in the free agent market to help the staff with the exception of adding a steady closer in Sergio Santos. Ricky Romero is poised to take the next step as the team's ace and he will be followed most likely by Brandon Morrow and a slew of young talented arms. RICKY ROMERO - Romero finished last season with 15 wins and a 2.92 ERA. He finished 6th in the American League in ERA and 10th in wins. Ricky has gotten better each year in all Roto categories and had a very low BABIP. I like Romero to perform in the same range as last year although he still remains a mid-round draft selection.  BRANDON MORROW- Morrow was one of my top sleeper picks last year and unfortunately he was asleep for most of the season. He did mange 11 wins and 203 strikeouts but a 1.29 WHIP and a 4.72 ERA made him a major disappointment. Tough call onc...

Montero or Lawrie?

Jeff Blair of the Toronto Globe and Mail had an interesting note in his column today, noting that there’s speculation in Toronto that the Mariners offered Michael Pineda to the Blue Jays in exchange for Brett Lawrie. They passed, and as we all know, the Mariners shipped Pineda to New York for Jesus Montero instead. So, this brings up an interesting question – who is the more...

Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista insists he has been tested 16 times for performance-enhancing substances during the past two years and maintains reports to the contrary are false.


From the Waterloo Bucks Waterloo, IA - Two former Waterloo Bucks have been invited to Major League camps for Spring Training as non-roster invitees. Pat Arlis will report to Milwaukee Brewers' Spring Training when pitchers and catchers report on February 19, while Ryan Goins will report to the Toronto Blue Jays' camp on February 24. ^^^ Former Waterloo catcher Pat Arlis...

Would Mariners have tried to land Brett Lawrie instead of Jesus Montero? You betcha

Interesting report out of Toronto from old buddy Jeff Blair, who I used to work with all the way back in Montreal days in the early 1990s. Blair is pretty plugged in when it comes to the Blue Jays and their ownership, so I believe him when he says that the Mariners first tried to trade Michael Pineda to Toronto for third baseman Brett Lawrie. The Blue Jays are said to have declined...
