    Bad bad signing. His home/road splits were exactly what you would expect in Boston. Gets killed on the road and 4 of his 5 HR's were 'just enough' according to hittrackeronline.com at home in Fenway with a 310 foot fence. He won't get that in Toronto, or anywhere else really. Take away those HR's and he was going to still OPS .650. That is about what you should expect with him moving forward, .650 OPS and solid defense.

    They probably liked the idea of taking Gonzalez off the table as an option for the Red Sox, since most of the teams likely to be in the mix for Scutaro have a protected 1st round pick.

    Its still dumb. Let the Red Sox have him then. The guy is just not a good player and the odds he can be a .700 OPS bat next year are incredibly slim.

    Blue Jays seem to have decided they want EE at 3d and Alex G. at SS. Make anybody feel better about the Rolen trade? Maybe the Jays are a little less smart than some seem to believe.

    They probably saw how well the EE/AGon combo produced for us!

    Columbus paper today has Toronto interested in Phillips, perhaps for a move to 3b.

    Alex Gonzalez is a complete joke. I'm just glad he's not our problem anymore.

    Odd. Who would want to move Phillips to 3B? SS maybe, but 3B doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

    Sorry I don't have a link for the Columbus paper story. Some sports commentator in the paper, sounded like he'd heard something, though, as he said the Jays had discussed Phillips and thought he had enough arm to play 3rd.

    From the sun deck

    http://www.theglobeandmail.com/sport...rticle1364415/

    ...Detroit Tigers and Cincinnati Reds doing some pro-active payroll pruning, and if the Reds are serious about trading Brandon Phillips as has been speculated, the Toronto Blue Jays will be all over him. Blue Jays scouts think he has the arm to play third base – Phillips won a Gold Glove at second in 2008, but Aaron Hill’s not likely to be moved – and Phillips is well-known to both general manager Alex Anthopoulos and adviser Tony LaCava. LaCava was with the Montreal Expos in 1999 when Phillips was chosen second overall, and as an adviser with the Cleveland Indians, he pushed for him to be included in the Bartolo Colon deal. Phillips has two years and $19-million (U.S.) left on his contract.
