That's um...ugly. And depressing, if you're a Sox fan, or a fan of anyone else without a quality catcher. (Marc Normandin)
2008-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Love your stuff Christina! Why Riccardi's reluctance to deal guys like Burnett, Downs, Barajas and Eckstein? I thought it was clear to everyone the Jays are out of the huntm have some depth at these postions and need some serious talent added to the upper minors?
(Jerjapan from Toronto)
Thank you, a compliment's as good as currency in my book. ;)

Eckstein's still there in part because he's not at the top of any one team's shopping list; anyone looking for a shortstop--like the Dodgers--is looking for bigger game, and failing that, can reasonably expect to be able to get Eckstein if that doesn't work out. Barajas seems to be in vogue in Toronto, probably because what he does bears a too-close resemblance to Pat Borders for ol' Cito, and what Gregg Zaun does is way too Ernie Whitt. Burnett's killing his own market, and as is, there's enough OTL-related concerns over what he'd bring to a team that I wouldn't be surprised if they're stuck with him. Downs might be the guy who genuinely brings something of value back, since he's under contract for two more years at reasonable cost. (Christina Kahrl)
