So, if there's anyone from the Jays reading this and you suddenly need an early-30s, 5'10", 150 lb left-handed pitcher who could reach the low 80s fifteen years ago, send me a PM.
**** your asterisk.

I forgot what thread I posted it in, but I predicted the Jays getting Fisher.

Atkins predictable with the type of hitters he likes.

Derek Fisher... well. If he can learn to make contact, he's interesting. Good power and speed, and appears to be an above-average fielder.

And we got Derek Fisher? Makes no sense unless there is more to this deal.

What on earth is the point of selling this low on Sanchez.

Shatkins should be banned from all negotiations that don’t involve investing in our a ball facilities.

So we sold our starter with 1 more year of control and pretty good reliever with 3+ years of control, for 4th outfield type? Maybe at best starting LF?

How many 4th outfielder types do we need?

Sanchez is about to be paid more than a middle reliever ought to be, in his walk year, and Biagini's an average-at-best relief option thanks to his penchant for surrendering home runs. Not a fan of Fisher, but if you're going to trade for a Fisher, it's in a deal where you really aren't giving up anything enticing.
**** your asterisk.
