I wish they would've waited his POTM card because he's going off right now and his card would be so much better if they released it later.

Not related but I always wonder if live series cards get downgraded if they get popped for PEDs

So are you implying that he's on PEDs?

I think the lost a huge amount of weight and is in much better shape and conditioning has to do with it,

I would never. Said not related. Was just pondering aloud.

Vladdy and POTM Justin Turner are a lot of fun game after game so far.

That Jays vs. Rays series was great to watch over the past weekend.

He still looks kinda heavy but it doesn't really matter if you can square it up consistently.

Too bad the Jays’ bullpen has been shitting the bed all series

He’ll never be a small boy but I think they said he lost 30 pounds in the offseason and has improved his work ethic immensely

He is. went from 270-280 down to 230 or so. turning fat into a lot of extra muscle

Still not as bad as the Reds' bullpen though or as bad as Luis Castillo.

On another note, I'm wondering if the Jays or ChiSox will make a play for Castellanos soon. Reds will probably trade him rather than waiting for him to opt out at the end of this season.

Jays already have too many outfielders. They will go hard after a starter and a reliever. Offense is fine. Especially with Springer back eventually

I would love for the White Sox to pick him up, a slugging outfielder is exactly what they need right now.

He’s been amazing and fun to watch. Still extremely young too. Alot of promise. I’m disappointed in Biggio this year. I thought he’d take a leap forward at the plate but it’s been brutal so far until he got injured

Ya. I kind of knew Biggio would be exposed. He's terrible against velocity. I think until he learns to adjust, he's more of a super utility guy.
3B will go to Groshans or Austin Martin by next year.

Yeah those guys’ ceiling is much higher I agree. I’m very excited for Martin

Would take that in a heartbeat if he becomes that offensively. He’s more athletic than Rendon too

For sure! He could also be the guy to move Springer back to RF and take over CF
