Some of AA's best trades never happened, including not trading Bautista -- sportsnet.ca/baseball/mlb/n…

Tristan Thompson casual strolls into the game ready to go for the 2nd quarter of play. Team #OVO up 19-18 vs #LaserFocus #ovobounce

Michael Grange

Looks like Tristan Thompson might be suiting up to play in the OVO Bounce semi-final here at Ryerson. Fashionably late :)

Josh Lewenberg

Ennis & Vonleh had their moments but Clarkson has been the best player in the building by a mile. Capped off night w/ impressive windmill

Josh Lewenberg

Jordan Clarkson's already repping the Lakers with his purple and gold high tops http://t.co/VZSHUAeFmy

Josh Lewenberg

After a strong Summer League, Lakers Jordan Clarkson is putting on a show for Bounce. Versatile guard. Looking like a bargain at pick No. 46

Ryan Wolstat

Ennis looked pretty athletic in throwing downa huge one-handed alley oop jam set up by Clarkson. A lot more athletic than given credit for.

Ryan Wolstat

Coming off strong summer league, Lakers guard Jordan Clarkson has been best player in building.

Josh Lewenberg

The 6-9 Vonleh looks small next to Bhullar (most do) but has intriguing skill set for a big. Very active/runs floor w/ ease. Has looked good

Ryan Wolstat

Christian Kabongo and Renaldo Dixon also playing for CIA Bounce here

Josh Lewenberg

Hornets rookie forward Noah Vonleh is also in the house, playing for the CIA Bounce team with Ennis, Bhullar and Clarkson.

Two months til' media day!

I'm not sure if payroll is a constraint, or if Jays could have made themselves better. But I like Bautista caring enough to say something.

Eric Koreen

Jose Bautista should damn well criticize the team if he sees fit. He gives a s---. It's nice.

Eric Koreen

Via @SNBarryDavis, Bautista is expressing disappointment that the Jays didn't add anything today.

Eric Koreen

Sounds like AA didn't want to touch 25-man roster, which a lot of today's bigger trades did. As for the smaller stuff...

Eric Koreen

"I think generally speaking, everybody would be happy that we didn't do [available] deals," says AA.

Eric Koreen

"Anytime great players leave the AL East, it's certainly not bad for us."

Eric Koreen

AA raises possibility of making deal in August.

Eric Koreen

AA: Payroll didn't factor in in not making trade. Couldn't line up on value. "We absolutely had the financial resources to add."

Eric Koreen

AA: A lot of trades would have involved creating another hole on roster.

Eric Koreen

AA: "We'll be fine. … We didn't see a deal that was going to make us better."

Eric Koreen

Good news: Baltimore didn't get much better. Bad news: Oakland, Detroit, Angels feel like they're in another stratosphere.

Eric Koreen

I'm all for the Jays not trading Stroman/Sanchez. However, if they failed to upgrade on margins because of $? Well, it's a bummer.

Eric Koreen

Let the record show that Austin Jackson was still in the game after he was traded. Rajai Davis just replaced him.

Eric Koreen

Not rhetorical. I'm genuinely interested in how he will accomplish it. And you know he will.

Eric Koreen

How will Alex Anthopoulos manage to not say Rogers won't let him add payroll today?

Eric Koreen

The best way to get a response from your landlord is by making empty threats, btw.

Alright @ChrisAlicpala & I have our game face on to take in some much needed #OVOBounce! Who else will be there tonight?

Michael Grange

Of course former As starter Tommy Milone (in AAA now) wants out now so ... foxsports.com/mlb/story/foll… … via @realjeffsimmons

Michael Grange

So does Oakland have a starter they might want to part with now? oakland.athletics.mlb.com/stats/sortable…

Eric Koreen

For all saying OAK's offence won't be able to carry them — it's possible. But they've scored the most runs in MLB. espn.go.com/mlb/standings

Eric Koreen

The A's are going to be pretty bummed when the Jays beat them 1-0 in Game 1 of the ALDS. #Stroman

It's amazing what the power of having a dog can do for a guy..

Michael Grange

Ninja GMing would be AA helping stir interest in Red Sox' Lester to point that Boston holds him out of start vs. Jays on Wednesday.

Eric Koreen

Of course, an awesome starting pitcher makes everything better.

Eric Koreen

That doesn't mean they shouldn't try to upgrade. But, if you have finite prospects + money...

Eric Koreen

Re: Lester — weirdly, hasn't the Jays starting pitching been THE MOST stable thing about the team this year?
