As the offseason gets closer to finishing you hear something repeated by Toronto Blue Jays fans and media constantly. Everyone seems to be assuming the Blue Jays are probably done making any significant moves from now until the end of the offseason.
This could very well be true.
Alex Anthopoulos has even said he doesn’t see the Jays doing anything besides minor league deals. However there’s a reason they call him the Silent Assassin right?
The reason being most of AA’s moves are transactions you weren’t even thinking about, at times you wouldn’t expect, and that you didn’t even hear rumors about. The Blue Jays making a “splash” right now would definitely fit all that criteria. AA has even said in the past that things change quickly and moves can come together fast.
I couldn’t tell if the boo’s at the Jays State of the Franchise were sincere or playful when Paul Beeston said ticket prices could eventually go up in a few years to keep the high payroll going. I know I’ll pay more for a ticket if the Blue Jays are spending wisely to make the team better.
