Dare I say 2010?



Contract talks between Jason Bay and the Boston Red Sox have broken off.

Bay will be a free agent next winter. Already, when I close my eyes, I see him in a Toronto Blue Jays uniform.

If arguably the best Canadian baseball player in the game signs with Canada's team, well, Richard Griffin's column the day after sure would be a must read.

Bay. A Blue Jay. Imagine.

That excited feeling between your legs? Embrace it.

How does a 2010 Jays team with Bay in left field, Alex Rios in centre field, Vernon Wells in right field, Travis Snider DHing, and Adam Lind at first base (so long, Lyle) sound?

With Roy Halladay leading the way on the mound, of course...

And as a Canadian, Jason Bay will politely say "No, Thanks" to the Jays non-existent overture. Now, if Shawn Horcoff was on the BJs it's another story altogether...

Say it with me - Horcoff for SS.

When you saw Bay at the WBC, that must've got the gears turning. I don't might that outfield alignment, but put Bay in left, Rios in centre, and Snider in right. Vernon Wells falls off the end of the earth somehow ...

BK: The Jays have pieces in Rios, Hill, Doc of course, and Snider. We could be attractive.

Ian: We gotta have faith in Vernon, bro. Faith that he ain't going to go out like a beeotch.

Silly Ian, Wells will be in pinstripes when all is said and done.

In all seriousness, I think the odd man out will be Lind. If JP and same management is still in place come 2010, I doubt the team comes up with the necessary dollars to even come close to Bay's price.

Vernon isn't going anywhere!!!!!1

And we're not the only ones with money concerns. The Red Sox aren't going to offer Bay a deal because they don't know what the market is going to be like a year from now. Hopefully we'll be out of this shitstorm known as the global financial crisis, and by December 2009 the economy will start to show some signs of life.

Interesting times, bitches!

I'm sure the Red Sox will throw their hefty wallets at J-Bay. Stupid Red Sox

Kush: Good pick. Vernon's going to win the MVP. OK, maybe not MVP, but he'll be our MVP.

slewis: The Red Sox aren't throwing their hefty wallets at him already, so that bodes well. Have faith!

My mommy always told me I'd go blind if I keep embracing those excited feelings between my legs...
