We have an outstanding amount of baseball fans that are doing audio and video presentations for the game of baseball that are not even being paid for it.

I would put the content of these shows up against a lot of the paid professionals of the MLB – or any other entity that possesses the wherewithal to be able to do that.

If you want to keep scrolling down, all of the information listed below is all of the shows for the week from all, or maybe you have a favorite, then you can just click on one of the highlighted shows. 

In this opening week we had Sully Baseball talk a lot about the Pirates, D’Backs, Cubs and the Cardinals in opening week.  He keyed on where Tim Lincecum may end up, and the opening start for Zack Greinke.  Like everyone else, he also submitted his yearly predictions.

Sully also delivered an emotional podcast where he implores everyone to love their extended family more on April 2, 2016 – because you don’t know when you may lose some one.

Its A Walk Year For Encarnacion + Bautista: Does This Mean Huge Campaigns?

Alex Anthopoulos extended both Joey Bats and EE after they broke out with career years. It was an awesome gamble and a lot of the success they had in 2015 - was based on that value. Add in bringing in Josh Donaldson at an MVP caliber for 3 more years, and you have a great value team.

Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion are both free agents after this season. Will this fact translate into big years for the two?

Every Toronto Blue Jays fan knows that 2016 marks the end of both Jose Bautista an Edwin Encarnacion’s contracts. Both players set the start of the new season as their deadline to sign an extension. Neither one has signed a new contract with the Blue Jays.

If both Jose and Edwin stick to their words, it is likely that neither one will be a Toronto Blue Jay come 2017. Recognizing this fact, many sportswriters have been predicting that both sluggers will have monster seasons, if for no other fact than this is their “walk year” and a big season will translate into a big “payday”.

However, do players tend to have big years in the last year of their contract? In order to try and answer this question, I needed some comparisons to look at.

Base Running, Not Leadoff Should Be The Blue Jays Focus

For a lot of the winter, there has been a great deal of attention paid to just who will lead off for the Blue Jays in 2016. With the exit of Ben Revere in the trade that brought in Drew Storen, the debate has gone in several different directions.

Some are firmly in the camp that Kevin Pillar be given a chance to put his contact skills to use. Others feel that the club should go with giving their best hitters the most at bats, thus slotting Troy Tulowitzki in the 1st spot.

Domestic violence is finally going to be dealt with in baseball.

I am not sure what commissioner Manfred should do about Jose Reyes, Yasiel Puig and Aroldis Chapman. But I DO know that saying things like David Ortiz said does not help.

Players are role models. If you don’t like that, quit and join a beer league.

Blue Jays Vs. Jose Bautista: The Art Of Negotiations

Jose Bautista must stay on the field the entire season if the Canadian franchise has any hopes of playoffs. Joey Bats should be capable of clubbing between 35 - 40 HRs in 2014. Whether the skipper bats him 2nd, 3rd or 4th in the lineup still remains to be seen. Bautista features a 3 Slash of .261/.381/.542 during his 5+ seasons tenure with Toronto.

Jose Bautista must stay on the field the entire season if the Canadian franchise has any hopes of playoffs. Joey Bats should be capable of clubbing between 35 – 40 HRs like he did in 2015. Whether the skipper bats him 2nd, 3rd or 4th in the lineup still remains to be seen. Bautista features a 3 Slash of .264/.384/.538 during his 8 seasons tenure with Toronto – clubbing 243 HRs and adding 632 RBI.  At Age 36 next winter, he is said to be seeking 5 Years and $150 MIL from the team.  That may not work.

THE TORONTO BLUE JAYS AND JOSE BAUTISTA ARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A GAME OF CHICKEN. WITH NO NEGOTIATIONS, WHO WILL BLINK FIRST?

 

Have you ever seen a cartoon where people get into a fight and dirt is flying around like a tornado, legs and arms flail about and then the dust settles and one of the participants is left by themselves?

In those cases, one of the fighters ends up just fighting with themselves and then looks around to find nothing but quiet.

That’s kind of what happened Tuesday with Jose Bautista and the Toronto Blue Jays. In the span of 24 hours, we’d heard that Bautista was not going to negotiate for his potential extension.

What ensued was a tornado of speculation and nonsense that resulted a whole lot of nothing…except an interesting staring contest.
