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.
All i can say is,
Good luck with the beer men Marcum.
