So, if you're Boston...You're not making the playoffs this year...You trade away Lester to a division team for some of their prospects...and then re-sign Lester in the off season. You've essentially just stolen prospects from a division rival.

Boston's biggest issue is that teams know that Lester is likely to return to Boston so they aren't likely to mortgage the future for a 1.5 month rental.
maybe
but from what i understand Boston has lowballed him right from the start of their talks (particularly the length)...Lester wants 5 years but Boston won't go further than 4

so if i'm Lester i go free agency at the end of the year and get MORE money AND the term that I want
i don't think that's with Boston

on the other hand...if what you've mentioned is correct, then you'd have to be a complete idiot to deal for him if you're in the division

to have him stashed in the NL would be a great consolation

King Felix did it.
New MLB record for consecutive quality starts 14 (7+ innings, 2 ER or less)

and... the Mariners lost the game again. Cleveland's Chumpy McGee tossed a 3 hitter against Seattle today.

Barry Davis @SNBarryDavis 9m
Among what you'll hear from Casey Janssen tonight in my 1 on 1 on #bluejays Central "there are certain GMS out there who go for it a lot"


Barry Davis @SNBarryDavis 23m
Most #bluejays understand not being able to add an ace, but seeing Prado go to the Yankees is hard to swallow for many of them.


Barry Davis @SNBarryDavis 49m
Bautista not hiding his feelings today. 'I'm a little disappointed. Other teams find a way to improve" #bluejays


Barry Davis @SNBarryDavis 45m
Bautista on Price, Lester and Lackey leaving East. "Those aren't the team's were fighting with now. Ballt and NY got better. #bluejays



Barry Davis @SNBarryDavis 25m
Speaking with a #bluejays player who chose not to come on camera "Jose speaks for most of us on this". Needless to say, players aren't happy

Anyone know why Rasmus is scratched tonight? They are saying that it isn't injury related and that Gibbons will address it after the game...

He arrived late to the ball park. Apparently not the first time

i haven't looked at the stats but i swear this team plays significantly better without Colby in the lineup. Just based on his game it sort of makes sense - terrible average, terrible OBP, when he does get on base he doesn't steal bags. I dunno.

Colby is meh. Looks great when he's making contact but he K's a lot and can't hit lefties. His power from CF makes him a commodity though. I wouldn't mind if we traded him tbh. Gose is elite in CF and his OBP has climbed this year.

Hutch seems to be tiring as the season progresses. Young pitcher coming off Tommy John, might have to find him some extra rest.

Asdrubal isn't that good, that's why he was traded for next to nothing. His bat regressed and advanced stats don't do his defence any favours.

I wish the Jays would have tried to get Martin Prado. Can play third, second and isn't an offensive black hole. Didn't cost the Yanks that much either.
