Tom Dakers, long time baseball fan, been through the good and bad with the Jays (seems like mostly bad lately) and the Expos (still sad about them leaving). I've been running and writing for Bluebird Banter for 6 years now (time flies when you are having fun). I'm very proud of the growth of the site in that time.I also write for CBCSports.ca and occasionally you'll see my name in other spots.

Sometimes it seems like all I do is talk about baseball.

A Fan Of...

  • MLB Toronto Blue Jays
  • NHL Calgary Flames
  • Golf Phil Mickelson (lefties stick together)
  • Soccer Newcastle United

I'd imagine the 48 hour rule is to level the playing field for teams that have their Triple A teams too far away to call a guy up in a day
Commented on Anthony Gose Is Coming Up...Or Is He? on Apr 16 2014, 6:22p
The team wouldn't make the move until before game time tomorrow so there is no blunder yet

I really think it would be a terrible attitude if he moped around and said 'I'm not good enough for the majors.'

I don't get why being honest makes you a cancer

He's been with the team less than 24 hours...calling him a cancer because he'd like to start is quite a stretch.
