I’m not really down on him. I just thought it was funny that the team exploded and he’s still o-fer.

He’s ok and seems like a genuinely nice guy, but I feel sometimes he’s just taking up a roster spot.

Oh and Julian Merryweather to the 10-day DL with a left oblique strain.

George Springer is also not going with the Jays on their road trip so is going to miss at least 10 more games including today.

Aren't we having a real rosy start to this season. At least they are hanging in with the record to this point.

Wouldn't be great to get our boys back into town and be able to fill up the Dome again.  Can't wait.  However until then, wish they were in Buffalo, they seemed to play well there.

I think the plan is for the Jays to move to Buffalo in June when the weather warms up.

Anyone have any thoughts on swapping Bichette and Semien positions?

Gurriel got eaten alive for putting up similar defensive play in the infield.  Granted Bo is hitting so he’s still valuable to the team but he isn’t a great shortstop.  I think they need to swap him out.

And move Vladdy to third.

It would make more sense for expediency, but Bichette as per management is the shortstop of the future and they are willing to let him work through his mistakes, until he has it down pat.  If this happens remains to be seen but I am sure he will have lots of runway to get there.  I like Espinal a lot at 3rd and the idea of having Biggio as utility man may make more sense than Joe (don't) Panik.

Bichette is 23 and shortstop is a tough position where young guys often struggle. Give him time; the team isn't really in compete mode for another year+ or so anyway.
