Wow. The Blue Jays really didn't want to pay the man. The Jays will likely call up Adam Lind. The Big Hurt should get plenty of interest.


Wow indeed. I'd imagine bunch of teams would be interested.

Lind is definitely ready for the bigs. He has been destroying AAA so far this year.

Not a huge surprise IMO, there was no way they were going to give him eough at bats to have his option picked up so it was only a matter of time.
Thomas is a rally killer with his complete lack of running ability now a days

Someone who needs a DH could certainly use the Big Hurt.
