Well done. That’s how you bridge the gap between the current NL CY Young winner and 4-5 years of service with the Blue Jays. Public declarations of love for both sides might look like a throwaway comment to the average human but I read into everything and Randal is begging the Blue Jays to sign Bauer.

Please, Santa Mark, spend 200 million on Trevor Bauer so we can unload Tanner Roark, ASAP. I’m begging you, Santa’.
Shapiro made a public declaration yesterday too. He’s chasing guys like Bauer, George Springer, Realmuto, and Francisco Lindor who is fucking ELITE. The Jays control the majority of their core for a few more years and Shapiro is hunting big fish to jack open a 5-year window of meaningful playoff baseball.
If the Blue Jays sign half of the players they’re rumored to be in on, Vlad turns the corner with his diet, Biggio and Bichette continue to evolve and Nate Pearson takes a step this year, look the fuck out.
Six years is a long time for a rebuild and I’ve been unduly harsh on Shapiro/Atkins. They were tight-lipped about the rebuild which pissed me off, but we’re here and ownership is committed to some MAJOR upgrades by spending money in a pandemic with ZERO gate revenue. That’s a big statement by Rogers so chill out, provided this doesn’t turn into the 2015 off-season and we’re left holding the bag.

Get Lindor, Springer, and Bauer done. Move Vlad to third and give fans a reason to fight through the winter for ‘chrissakes’, Mark, you’re so close and baseball feels like it’s miles away so grant Randal his Christmas wish and we can all have a Merry Christmas.
