Forget Freddie Freeman in Toronto
Recently (before the work stoppage) former Cleveland Guardians and five major league baseball players Carlos Baerga mentioned that the Blue Jays have not had the luxury over the years , to align a Canadian star opened a window of seduction with Freddie Freeman, who has dual Canadian and American nationality.
Freeman in Toronto also means Vladimir Guerrero Jr.’s move to third pad and that possibility is far from interesting.
Whoever was a finalist for the title of Most Valuable Player in the American in 2021 is in a zone of comfort and confidence and it would be catastrophic to take him out of his well-being.
At this time, due to the labor dispute, Freeman has not packed his bags to a new destination and it is a safe bet that the winner of the last World Series will remain a member of the Braves for the next several years to come. At least, the strongest rumors point in this direction.
Basing his comment on the Canadian fact, Baerga ignores Russell Martin’s stint with the Blue Jays. Between 2015 and 2018, the East York, Ont. Native made his mark in Toronto, particularly in his first season when he represented the Jays at the All-Star Game.
Sure, Martin isn’t in the same league as Freeman when it comes to stats, but he still provided some great times for the Jays fans.
Freeman’s left-handed stick would be a big addition to the Toronto squad, but the needs are other than first base.
If we look at the amount of big names circulating in the rumors involving the Blue Jays and the signings already made a few weeks ago, we understand that the organization is more than serious in its intentions and that the objectives could. move from ambitious to realistic.
