would have been nice if lind was that silver slugger dude still, his production has been wack for awhile though, maybe jays can still get something for him

i know next to nothing about this guy. he has a low career whip and a good strikeout to walk ratio. that seems positive. but how often to middle of the road offseason pitching trades actually work for the jays?

McGowan, Santos, Lind, Morrow are gone. Our closer won't be back either, wonder what's coming

.@BlueJays options on RHP DUSTIN McGOWAN, RHP BRANDON MORROW, and RHP SERGIO SANTOS were declined, allowing them to elect free agency.

Sucks that Morrow never worked out. Always thought he would eventually become the ace of our staff.

can jays still sign guys if they declined their option? Morrow would be nice to hold onto, but aat 10 mil? no way (I just remember his option # was too much imo)

If jays could get him for peanuts and see if he could close/relieve that would be great

Jays traded Anthony Gose for Devon Travis. (Detroits best prospect, they have a weak farm though)

Here's a recent article about him just published today

At least this should end the Lawrie as a second baseman experiment going forward.

They were talking about it on the fan 590, Gose can't bunt at all. He completey wastes his talent by not learning how to bunt. I assume that's why the jays gave up on him.

I saw him bunt a few times, better than most Bluejays (which is not saying much, really) and a couple of times he could leg it out for a single with his speed. I don't like giving him up for just a prospect who was injured last year and had to have surgery and for whatever reason was switched from 2B to OF.

I also don't really see anything gained in trading Adam Lind for a mediocre reliever.

I guess we are back in rebuilding mode so kiss goodbye to Jose and Edwin.

Gose has very bad contact rate, so low that historically players with his contact rate barely become regular MLBers. I dont think we'll miss this guy too much.

Devon Travis was switched from 2B to OF because it was an organizational need for DET, not because he can't play in the infield. Also Devon Travis's bat is more likely to translate into the big leagues.

Lind is a platoon player getting paid, getting rid of him opened up some more money to play with. None of these moves mean the Jays are blowing it up. They wanted V-Mart -- not a sign of a team wanting to rebuild.
