It appears that he can still hit lefties, and it's better than sticking 2 catchers in the lineup every time a lefty takes the mound.
I've been thinking the same thing. Sexson's 11 HR's would lead the Blue Jays.
I just don't trust JP to pull the trigger on this though.. you know, since Sexson is a lot like Adam Dunn, only with fewer HR's and a weaker batting average..
I would like to think that with all the bad luck dousing the Jays, there would be some motivation by the team to at least beat the Orioles out of last place. With the Rays in contention and the Yanks never likely to fall lower than third, I would hope JP and the management would stick their pride in this and take a perennially 2nd/3rd place team and try to keep them in 4th at least. They should be signing Sexson to give him another chance to rebuild some stock.
