Assuming he would have been interested in Cincinanti would he have been a viable option for the rotation? Reasonable contract. Not stellar numbers but at least on the surface servicable. However he only pitched 80 innings in 18 starts. Injury perhaps?
Story from RotoworldThe Blue Jays have reportedly come to terms with free agent John Thomson on a one-year, $500,000 contract.
We can't remember the last time we were this strongly in favor of a J.P. Ricciardi move. Taking price into account, Thomson was the best gamble left out there for a team in need of a starting pitcher. He'll have to compete for a rotation spot, but he could easily emerge as the Jays' No. 3 starter over Gustavo Chacin.
