Plan A - Ohtani

Oof.

"Finally, starter Alek Manoah is expected to start for the Bisons on Saturday. Like Swanson, he pitched for low-A Dunedin on Sunday. However, the 26-year-old allowed six runs over 1.2 innings, walking four batters and allowing five hits."

Bender

Just came back from the Jays game. That was brutal. So hard to root for a team like this. Woof.

I was watching on TV. As soon as they hit the HR in extra innings I turned off. Knew that was it done. Was surprised to see they even tacked a few more on when I checked the final result later on too.

The first pitch of 10th, the ball is in the air, changed the chanel.

That's a tough ninth for Swanson and Mayza.

7th in the league at .526 W% at this point, but it doesn't feel like they're a playoff team right now.

Every now and again there are signs I think that they could be. But then there's too many things like last night (and I know the bullpen was light on availability and guys were making first appearances etc).

First time I've really seen Soto. He's a pleasure to watch. Shame he's a Yankee.

Todays hot take.

I wouldn't give Vlad Jr a big, long term contract.

I don't think that's too hot of a take.  I agree.

Would you for Bo?

Also, Manoah looking terrible:  https://www.sportsnet.ca/mlb/article/blue-jays-manoah-struggles-badly-in-fourth-rehab-start/

Arn

I think I would for Bo, yes.

If I'm not giving Vlad one I guess I'm seeing what value he brings back in a trade.

Never seen a game be actually played in conditions like currently in Kansas. Looks grim.

Agreed. Bo's having a rough start to the year, but he's been very consistent - OPS+ in spitting distance of +125 every year he's been a full time MLB player. Vladdy is much more up and down. If he can get back to near his form from 21 and 22, you lock him up. If not, you either look short-term or for a trade.

I would sign them both... nothing in the hopper. Hope he mature into something close to a few years ago. No plan B.
