Jays have signed pitching prospect Jordan Powell.

More importantly, this is also part of his skill set:

Just sitting here at Sportsnet Grill in Skydome...there's only 7 weeks until their first game here, but this field sure doesn't look like it's going to be good to go in 7 weeks.  According to the schedule, they don't play here until April 8th as they have scheduled their first 10 games on the road to start the season.

Now that the Blue Jays media doesn't have anything to get excited about, all I'm hearing now is their gushing about how svelte and jacked Vladdy and Manoah are looking now.

We've definitely heard that about Vladdy before, but, from the article in the Athletic, it sounds like Manoah did legitimately make some major changes to his diet and training this off season.

Nice when millionaire athletes have to boast about coming to camp in top shape instead of showing up prepared in the first place. Which Manoah basically said last season he showed up as a fat cat.

Feels like a make or break year for this squad(again). Do they blow it up and deal everyone next winter should they falter in the opening round again? Could see it.

I feel if the Jays miss the playoffs, maybe blow it up.

The Dodgers also went winless in the playoffs last year. It's a crap shoot.

I really hope the Votto thing works. At least we'd have a nice feel good story to follow for the season.

Given the rather unsuccessful off-season acquisitions, it smells a little desperate of the Jays to me...like, "no way could we get this guy when he was great, so here he is at 40 years old."

Arn

Yeah, that's what I mean - they rarely do work out, but I hope this one does.

He's even said since he signed that he'd have preferred to have ended his career as a one man club, but it would just be nice for the Jays to just have a good story for a change

Votto still had a .747 OPS last season (100 points higher than Dalton Varsho) so there's hope he can be a useful piece.

Need some grumpy-old-man-pro to smack Jr. in the face for getting thrown out at second.

On pace for 162 wins.


But on a serious note, good to see contributions from the big names. Massive HR from Vladdy. Berrios looked solid too.
