One Sentence Scouting Report: Golden Oldies Edition

Apparently, the Jays have signed Vladimir Guerrero to a minor league deal. In honour of this, I've decided to repost my One Sentence Scouting Report from December 23rd:

One Sentence Scouting Report: Vladimir Guerrero


Welcome to the inaugural One Sentence Scouting Report, where I scout Major League Baseball players using only one sentence!

Vladimir Guerrero: He can't walk and he can't walk.

Some Theories as to Why Adam Lind is Still a Blue Jay


  • They've discontinued his hat size (XXXXL, unbendable brim, low enough to hide the fact that his hair line is perilously close to his eyebrows)
  • Alex Anthopoulos is mesmerized by Lind's dreamy eyes squint
  • Adam Lind has stumbled upon some rent control scheme and will be occupying the cleanup spot until he's a feeble old man 
  • There's got to be some unknown metric we're ALL missing 
  • The air conditioning at Rogers Centre is broken and they need the gusts of wind provided by his numerous strikeouts to keep the stadium cool during the summer
  • The Jays have a warehouse full of #Lindsanity T-Shirts that they're hoping one day become relevant (assist to Connor McGuire on this one...)

Jose Bautista’s Early Season Dominance

If you examine the stats, I mean relax your focus and stare at the stats until you see the image of a saiboat, you'll see that Jose Bautista is having an utterly dominant season. Just think about it, if baseball is a game of failure, Bautista has truly mastered it. He's failing at all facets of the game, offensively at least. If he could find a way to emulate Eric Thames in the outfield, he'd be a complete player. Well done, Jose!
