Jays Acquire Wilkerson + Mench

Postby tmlfan4ever » Fri May 09, 2008 4:40 pm

Just a heads up for AL only players. The Jays have acquired Kevin Mench and Brad Wilkerson today making the situation in LF even more murky. Maybe even Matt Stairs will lose some ABs at DH? Hard to say how this will play out.

I love Rios........and believed in him, while so many Jays fans seemed to be bailling on him early on.......but I have to admit, I really wanted that rumored deal for Lincecum to go down, when I heard about it in pre-season.

Damn Aaron Rowand, having to screw everything up.

How many mediocre hitters does it take to make a contender? Frank Thomas was a much better option in the middle of their lineup than Mench...

How many mediocre hitters does it take to get a GM fired is the better question. The number is obviously a lot.. X-I

Frank Thomas was embarrassing himself. He couldn't catch up to a legit fastball and could not run the bases anymore. On more than one occasion he prevented someone from a double or could not score a run from second. I for one am glad he is gone, I would prefer anyone in the middle of the lineup. As for JP... he would be crucified for doing nothing and he is being crucified for trying something. He's trying to mix things up for a struggling offense, why is that such a joke?
