Well the Marcum trade has almost already paid off as much as I hate to admit. Lawrie was unreal the end of last season... Can't stand him though, incredibly cocky and arrogant. I used to play with and against him (same hometown) and he hasn't changed since he was 10 years old... I don't think the Jays are a bad team at all but when every year you have to compete with two teams spending more than $200 million in payroll alone plus the Rays who seem to develop young players very well and your left with a lot of 4th place division finishes. Even if they get lucky one year and somebody is God awful they still finish 3rd. I'll probably get shot for this but I think if any sport could ever use a salary cap baseball would be it. The rich teams can still use their wealth in other ways like in scouting, player development, coaching, and team facilities but atleast lower budget teams stand some sort of chance.
