In the next few days I will list three potential line-ups for the Jays in 2011 (excluding pitchers). Below is the first.
In my opinion the Jays trading Marcum was one of the stupidest trades in the past decade of Jays history at least. Even if they do get Greinke, which it now looks like they won’t, you don’t trade a high end pitcher for a minor league prospect regardless of how good youthink he will get. Now, all that has to happen is, Lawrie gets a career ruining injury and you’ve lost a perfectly good pitcher for nothing. That’s just an example but something like that could happen. If the Jays don’t get Greinke or any other decent pitcher soon the Jays will enter 2011 spring training with a very weak pitching staff.
On Monday Jose Bautista hit his 40th homer of the season and on Thursday he hit his 100th career home run. the jays one a series against the Yankees (big surprise!) and split the series with Detroit. They are now 12 games back going into 6 game road trip begging tonight in tampa (their flight leaves at 2:45).
