Welcome to The Shapkins Defender, where I inhale your toxic screeds and spit out the fresh oxygen of optimism, like a tree that kind of understands WAR. (Just don’t ask me to explain it.) Let’s get to it!
For this edition, I don’t have a specific argument to parse through. Instead, I want to talk about the general thirst around Blue Jays world this offseason. There have been various pieces mulling over the possibility of acquiring a Gerrit Cole or a Zach Wheeler or a Marcell Ozuna. And, well, I don’t think it’s gonna happen. And I don’t think it’s a bad thing either.
Now, don’t get me wrong. We’re all on the same page here. We all want the Blue Jays to be good. Sports are way more fun when your favourite squadron is good. And with so many talented kids debuting last year, it seems like the goodness is within grasp. And I certainly won’t complain if the team goes out with a dollar-sign-emblazoned sack and throws it at somebody in order to smash open the next competitive window. But I think it makes sense for the front …
