I am all for teams using social media to allow they're fans to interact with them, but this seemed a little odd to me. I really hope that the Blue Jays are doing this to show the fans that they care about there thoughts on the team, but I hope to God that they do not take any of the suggestions seriously.... I am a firm believer that organizations should never fall to public pressure when it comes to making roster moves for a team. Let me check that....The only time that it's ok for a team to fall to public pressure would be if there was a public outcry over something a player did like Yunel Escobar did this past summer.
I mean, let's be honest if the team were to make decisions on what the public thought would be best we would have a bunch of contracts like JP signed Vernon Wells to. I remember when Vernon was about to hit the open market and almost everyone in TO was begging for a long term deal for VW & when it was signed we were all ecstatic. How did that turn out? That contract is still regarded as one of the worst in Baseball history.
It's great to have an avenue to bitch, moan and praise deals that your teams makes. that's what makes Social Media so great, but I think leaving those deals to the true baseball minds is probably a better way to go.
