Blue Jays trade Wallace for Astros Gose

Postby Havok1517 » Thu Jul 29, 2010 4:49 pm

The Blue Jays will send Brett Wallace to Houston for Gose, according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports on Twitter.

This seems weird to me as I thought Wallace was the future 1B in Toronto. I guess not.

Ok this makes no sense to me unless they plan on moving Lind/Snider into the 1B/DH spots in the near future...even then why trade a proven MiLB bat who is almost MLB ready for a 19 year old speedster with strikeout problems and a low stealing %. What am I missing here? :-S
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!

I'm starting to think there is a reason why teams keep trading Wallace. And also why the Jays didn't call him up when Overbay was hitting under .200 for 2 months.

So the BJ's essentially traded Michael Taylor for a player similar to him that is 2 or 3 years further behind him in development? :-?

They were apparently really trying to get Grose in the Halladay deal, AA really likes him. I think Lind gets some time at 1B. AA was on the Fan590 this afternoon saying Lind walks around all day wearing a 1B glove.
