Let's see. The Jays have an extra outfielder and need to add a #3 or #4 starting pitcher?

Phillies, what are you waiting for? Lieber for Rios! Lieber for Rios!

Wells:
And this gives me a chance to do something special in Toronto that hasn't been done in a while.


The thing he was reffering to has been done before....unless he means winning the WS three years in a row. ;-)

Haha, good luck with that. I really hope you were just kidding, because that will never happen.

Well, at least now I don't have to change my avatar. :-b Would be nice to see what kind of talent we could've gotten in return, but oh well, lets just hope he keeps up putting solid numbers. ;-D
