@Osh Kosh Bosh is preaching right now.
Alex continued to gain a steady amount of young assets in a good amount of time. No Bryce Harper type, but if you look at the 3 pitchers who closed out game 5 in the division series they were Stroman, Sanchez and Osuna. 3 key pieces for our future. AA acquired and all within 25 yrs old.
Everyone knows about the big moves he's made - Marlins trade, but the ones that stuck our were the key low cost trades such as Devon Travis who looks to be our 2nd baseman of the the future for Anthony Gose. (probably my favourite trade by him outside of the Donaldson trade). Trading Vernon Wells and that nasty contract was also a highlight.
It's a shame that his reign had to end this way after such a high. Toronto was buzzing even after we were eliminated from the playoffs because our future was bright.
Shapiro now has a target on his back with little wiggle room for mistakes.
