BREAKING NEWS - Jays Make 10 Player Trade with Houston
7/20/2012 11:29:00 AM
The Jays have made a 10 player trade with the Houston Astros to bring in some much needed pitching help.
Toronto acquires JA Happ (a guy they were interested in when making the Halladay trade with Philly), David Robertson and Brandon Lyon (who broke into the Majors with the Jays). In exchange Toronto gives up the Francisco's...Ben and Cordero. Plus minor leaguers, Asher Wojiechowski, David Rollins, Joe Musgrave, Carlos Perez and a player to be named. The Jays have also recalled Travis Snider who is already in Boston for the weekend series agaisnt the Red Sox.
In my opinion, any trade that gets rid of CoCo is a good trade. He just didn't pan out in Toronto and more than anybody, needed a fresh start. Plus you get JA Happ, a young lefty with a 7-9 record / 4.83 ERA in 18 starts with a bad Houston club.
Here's Happ facing Lawrie in this year's Spring Training.
And slow motion mechanics.
That's it from the couch...for now.
