Looks pretty crowded to me. But I guess he could unseat 1 of them.
Don't forget Lilly also Riccardi was given another $50 Million to spend and he says that #1 on his wish list is another starter (Burnett seems to be his favourite). So we have:
#2 maybe Burnett
Downs will come back to earth and will be our long relief guy for next year but he is a good pick up right now.
I'm not sure if Lilly is signed next year, I think it's either the Jays' option year or his.
And yes, I've heard the Jays will try to sign Burnett.
As for Downs, I'm sold on the fact that he has finally reached the potential which led the Cubs to draft him in the 3rd round 8 years ago. Although, with Halladay, (a #2 starter), Chacin, Bush and Towers in his way, not to mention McGowan, Jackson, and Purcey among other prospects, I think it will be tough to find in room in the rotation for him. I do believe that Downs would be good in the long role which Pete Walker is currently.
