New Year’s Resolution: Stop Reading Griffin

leave a comment »

Here is how the Jays have gone about building an ’08 contender. First, they traded for super-sub Marco Scutaro from the A’s, to fill the McDonald super-sub role. Then they signed Eckstein to a one-year deal, returning McDonald to his super-sub role. One of them is obsolete. You don’t need two of them. It’s why the Jays finish third every year. Ricciardi needs to formulate a plan and stick to it for more than a year.

Oh, so that’s why. Because they attempt to upgrade positions in which they are very weak. Clearly, competing in the AL East is all about “having a plan”, which is all about sticking with the starters you have no matter how terrible they are (Hinske) or what kind of improvement falls into your lap for cheap (Molina).
