Another series win taking 2 of 3 against Tampa.  This team is good.
Just glad we weren't playing at Tropicana.  AKA the Bluejay Graveyard.

Next week.

I get the feeling that Semien will end up with one of the California teams and it won't be because the Jays didn't offer a similar deal.

Also, I guarantee you'll hear people say things like "The problem isn't that the team is in Arizona, the problem is they built an arena out in Glendale that's hard to get to" which sounds reasonable until you remember that the Coyotes have been for sale a lot in the past and at no point has a smart rich person come along and bought the team, built an arena in a more accessible spot and reaped the rewards.

That's because that wouldn't be a smart business decision. What those people really mean is "The Coyotes would be in better financial shape if someone gave the team a free 500 million dollar arena in downtown Phoenix" which is what passes for smart business analysis in the sports world.

Shoot, I've got a bunch of business ideas that would work if you gave me 500 million dollars.

What can I get for $23 and a pack of sticky notes?

Season tickets to the Coyotes.

Man, I looked at that question for a solid 10 minutes trying to come up with a decent joke and you just come along and do so much better than I could. Well done, sir.

I can be witty a couple times a year.

If they shift 250k from year 3 to year 2, I believe it works.

Yeah the article says that's exactly what they did to fix it.

So my 10 minute spread sheet could have saved them embarassment.

Man, I've looked more than 20 times at the spelling of this fake account Twitter handle and the real one and I still don't see the difference...

Well that's embarrassing.

I read the variability rules and made a spreadsheet that could check a contract to see if it broke any of them, it took under 10 minutes.

He asked not to be drafted; Montreal didn't respect that.  If his request was genuine, could he not now simply issue a statement saying he refuses Montreal's action and will not participate with them in any way?  Sure, this leaves a bunch of league-ish questions about whether Montreal holds on to his rights until such time as he wants to make himself available (or whether, in so doing, he forfeits the opportunity to be drafted into this league at all), but if he really meant what he said, he ought to try to do something to actually make it come about.

I believe he would go back into the draft in 2023 if he refuses to sign.

Edit: A couple ex-leafs were drafted twice, 2 years apart. Andersen and Tim Brent.

That's all your eggs in one trade.

They still have plenty of eggs, but these are two valuable prospects.
