No idea. I only trust imageshack not to mess things up though.

splits.jpg doesn't work, but jakefox.jpg does. I don't know html or anything, but "splits" is probably a command that messed with the image tags.

Moving on...

I just heard "confirmation" that the prospect is Yohermyn Chavez. :-°
Speculation on the radio this morning was that it was either Wallace or Ricky Romero which would have made the trade a big loss for the Jays imo. Now I like the deal. I have had it with League and didn't want to see him anywhere near the bullpen for next year, so I'm a happy man today.

Next steps. Try to get value for Overpay and Downs. See if someone will take over Wells' contract.

A middle of the order of Hill, Lind and Snider will look pretty good in 2012 as will a rotation of McGowan, Litsch, Romero, Drabek and Marcum. Frasor is not the answer at closer and Gathright is not a leadoff man but the picture is getting clearer than it was under JP.

Oh, and I think that there is a good chance that Encarnacion is moving on too. He doesn't fit in with this team.

It shouldn't take long for you to have "had it" with Morrow, if you didn't like League's 2009. :-° ;-7

That's exactly what I told a Jays fan today who was fed up with League's "wildness."

Wasn't Chavez Rule-5 eligible? Why not pick him up that way rather than trade for him???

Because you have to leave him on the MLB roster for the entire season. this way you can put him in the minors next season and then add him to the 40 man next offseason and give him 3 more development seasons in the minors (if needed) instead of wrecking his development.

So you see Morrow taking over for Frasor? Moving on?
If it's obvious it's probably true.

Who knows? The Jays are trying like hell to trade Accardo and Downs. If this happens and barring any other offseason moves Frasor is the closer but Morrow will likely get a shot if he is healthy and Frasor falters. But there is still so much time for other moves to change this.
