September Roster Expansions Newsbeat

Friday, September 07, 2018

Mark Shapiro says the Blue Jays’ decision to not call up Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. “has nothing to do with business”

Mark Shapiro then went on to say that, despite appearances to the contrary, bears were not going into the woods because they had business to attend to.

Blue Jays president and CEO Mark Shapiro appeared on MLB Network Radio on Wednesday. When asked by super-prospect Vladimir Guerrero, Jr. was not called up after rosters expanded on September 1, Shapiro said the decision “has nothing to do with business.”

The full quote:

It has nothing to do with business. It has nothing to do with anything other than we think the best thing for him developmentally is to go play in Arizona [fall league] and continue to develop. We think that when he gets here (which would obviously not preclude him from making the team out of spring training next year, which would be evidence of that fact), we think he’s got a chance to be an impact player.

It’s time to finally change the stupidest rule in all of sports

I have always liked September roster expansion. You get to see a lot of young players for the first time. Teams with depth get value for that depth.
