The off-season is predictably off to a very, very slow start as the two biggest dominos, Gerrit Cole and Stephen Strasburg, have yet to fall. Given the way things went last year with Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, it isn’t going to happen any time soon either. Also, the fact both Cole and Strasburg (along with the top position player on the market, Anthony Rendon, to boot) are Scott Boras clients isn’t going to help speed things up either.
The most interesting thing we have from the past few days is this report from our old pal Gideon Turk, who spoke with a source connected to the Blue Jays organization about where the front office is at this winter. Don’t worry, even though his profile photo is a picture of a tooth, this information is reliable.
Checked in w/ Jays source, some updates: – Kicked tires on Cole/Stras, won’t be involved. – Doing lots of work on SP a tier down. – Not concerned about missing on Gibson, did like Odorizzi a lot. – Exploring starters in trades who are signed long term on non-contending teams.
First thing’s first, the Jays aren’t going to be on …
