And it was a April Fools joke I'm not guna be a Padre ahah #SuaveI was left contemplating what outcome would be more terrifying(ly awesome) for Blue Jays fans:
— Brett Lawrie (@blawrie13) April 1, 2012
A) The 22-Year old Lawrie bridled with the responsibility of parenthood
B) The 22-Year old Lawrie playing for the Padres.
In the end, I decided that I would be okay with either. Brett would almost certainly post numerous irresponsible parent photos to twitter. If anyone's going to paint a Jose Bautista beard on a baby, it's going to be Brett Lawrie. If anyone's going to challenge their infant to a game of Edward 40-hands, it's going to be Lawrie. Plus, as an added bonus, we'd get to listen to Lawrie talk about how being a father forced him to mature overnight in an overtly sarcastic tone.
On the other hand, the only team with a farm system as deep as Toronto's is San Diego. It'd probably take Yonder Alonso, Rymer Liriano, Jedd Gyorko, and Robbie Erlin to get Brett Lawrie and Toronto would be absolutely posed for a run in 2014-2015. Oh yah, we'd get Jaff Decker too (because he's fat, coming off a sub-par year, and would make a solid DH.)
