Is like one of those baseball mogul trades where you swindle a GM out of a good player by giving him several craptastic players and a bunch of minor league guff?
...Blue Jays made a 10-player trade with the Toronto Blue Jays on Friday.
The Jays clearly win this trade by getting rid of Cordero.
This is like giving up a lottery ticket for a pack of bologna.
This sounds like the result of a GM drinking session to me
This seems to make no sense from Toronto's perspective. Is this their "going for it" deal?
The new rule where if you hang on to your veteran and let him become a free agent, you get draft picks, but if you trade him and he leaves his new team, the new team doesn't get draft picks, can't be helping.
This seems to make no sense from Toronto's perspective. Is this their "going for it" deal? Any of the prospects in any way decent?
The problem is that those 5 men are Ricky Romero, Henderson Alvarez, Brett Cecil, Carlos Villanueva and Aaron Laffey.
"Happ is the future!!"
I think Happ is a slightly better pitcher than his performance to date suggests, a cromulent four. The Jays could use that.
And they are likely to stay that way for the short term - word is that Happ will go to the 'pen until one of the aforementioned starters implodes
I think the bigger issue is the second Wild Card with a little helping of underachieving teams (e.g. Red Sox, Phillies, Tigers). The American League currently has seven teams within three games of that second WC. Conversely, a year ago the Yankees were the Wild Card leader and had a six game lead on the Rays at roughly the same point.
