    His arm is trash. Makes me miss Marwin even more.

    I admit, I have cussed his name now 3 times and then swore at Correa for his bobo.

    With Correa's health concerns it's not encouraging Diaz is the current utility guy.

    Huh? The best thing about Diaz is his arm. Does he know where it's going? No. Can they catch it? Maybe. But it is strong.

    So the Tanielu talk is starting on Game 2? I'm in.

    Yuli may be better as utility since he can play every position but center, catcher, and short.

    Maybe I'm just used to seeing Correa and Marwin out there, but it looks weak in the few plays I've seen. In addition to the accuracy issues.

    From some online scouting reports I've found. Though the writer of the article did bring up that his arm looks good enough, but had accuracy issues.

    While it was great to get something for a Rule 5-eligible AAA guy we'd have almost certainly lost for nothing, I'm starting to get the feeling that there's a reason why the Jays gave up on him.

    Marwin got nowhere near the money he wanted.

    He downgraded his team, teammates, weather, and city for the same money.

    Same Money would've been less taxed in Texas too.

    LMFAO, 2 games against Snell and CFM. I'm glad we're not overreacting to small sample sizes.

    I pretty much knew this would happen if he got off to a slow start. People loved Marwin, far beyond his actual value.
