@JimBowden_ESPN: Just heard from a source that Dan Duquette’s move from Baltimore to Toronto is getting close and going to happen... but it is unconfirmed..

@Buster_ESPN: If a TOR/Duquette deal is finished, compensation will be substantial. Jeff Hoffman discussed.

I'm guessing the tampering evidence is pretty ample, if Jeff Hoffman's name has even been discussed. As a comparison, Boston netted two minor league relievers with control problems when Theo left for the Cubs. I don't think either are even with the organization anymore.

That's what I'm asking like, what the hell is going on?

I thought AA was doing a great job there.

This is for club president, not GM

So basically they are so desperate to bring in a guy to tell AA what to do they are going to trade prospects to a division rival to steal their guy. Embarrassing for him.

Which is weird that they need a guy to pull AA's strings since I thought he was doing more than fine.

That was definitely the consensus a few years ago but the fact that they've failed to make the playoffs in his five years despite the AL East in general getting much weaker has soured a lot of people's opinion of him.

They've had a strong offseason tbh.

That's what we've been saying about the Blue Jays for literally ten years. I'll believe it when I see it tbh.

Yeah but they were really close last year and have everything needed to make the push this year.

I just think this could end up biting them really hard depending on what happens here in terms of prospects given up.

He got overhyped because Tony Reagins was an incompetent boob.

This board was really on AA and Jack Z's jocks a few years ago.

The board is still on AA's jock. I mean, look at this thread. At least DD and RAJ have won pennants. AA shipped out Napoli, Syndergaard, D'Arnaud, and Alvarez for what, really?

Granted, the above is mostly sarcasm. I actually like AA and think the BJs will be contenders shortly. I can't call it a good BJ team until they make the playoffs, but their farm is strong and there are a lot of young, talented, BJs in the system.


Also, is Dan Duquette trading himself? Why not just make himself a BJ for free? Whatever he gets as compensation for himself only makes his BJ team worse in the long run.
