Spring Training Haikus: The “Tradition” Continues

February 11, 2019

construction begins
at the spring training complex
where the earth is scorched

the new manager
leads a rebuilding roster
with future promise

fans want young Vladdy
to address his potential
and answer the hype

where does Travis fit
in a packed middle infield
with many options

pitching has questions
mixed with low expectations
and hopes for good health

Short, scribbled, simiring thoughts about Charlie Montoyo

October 30, 2018

When the Blue Jays hired Tim Johnson to manage the team, it seemed like there was nothing but high praise for the new skipper. And then…well….we all know what happened.

Of course, I’m not saying a similar fate will fall upon Charlie Montoyo. I just couldn’t help but think of Tim Johnson whenever I saw rave reviews about some of the potential candidates to manage the Jays in 2019.

Anyway, Charlie Montoyo meets the apparent requirements. Bilingual, comes from a system that uses analytics and has plenty of coaching and managerial experience.

Now we’ll see how that all translates.

But please….understand this:

Do not expect this man to move Heaven and Earth right away. The team is transitioning and the young talent needs to develop. It won’t happen instantaneously. At the very least, kindly give Charlie Montoyo a few years before evaluating his pefromance.
