Several minor league “prospects” were used in order to acquire players such as Josh Donaldson, Troy Tulowitzki and David Price.

Doug Fox of Clutchlings explains how this affects the Blue Jays and also points out players in the farm system to watch out for.

The Jays are having one hell of an August! The whole country is excited and eagerly catching “Blue Jays Fever.”

Just before Drew Hutchison was optioned to Buffalo, former Jays blogger Doug Plourd joined DNJT to chat about the team’s performance this month and how Americans are viewing the club’s success.

Retro Blue Jays – Bell, Barfield and Moseby

This Sunday, the Blue Jays will celebrate the 30th anniversary of the team’s first division title and playoff appearance. The first 20,000 fans entering Skydome (get there early!) will receive a bobblehead set of George Bell, Jesse Barfield and Lloyd Moseby; arguably one of the best outfields of the 1980s.

In honour of the occasion and giveaway, here are some unique YouTube clips of the famous threesome.

George Bell is all smiles for this McDonald’s commercial. It’s a sharp contrast to what fans and the media were familiar with at the time. Note how Bell shows off the food, but doesn’t eat any of it; not even a single, solitary fry.

In 1985, Jesse Barfield appeared on the religious program, 100 Huntley Street and discussed how faith plays a role in his life.

Finally, this Toronto hockey star is no match for Lloyd ‘The Shaker’ Moseby!

There’s no need to pinch yourself because it wasn’t a dream. David Price and Troy Tulowitzki are now playing for the Blue Jays.

Joanna Cornish of HumandChuck.com joins DNJT to look back at what has been one of the most exciting non-waiver deadlines in Jays history.

Re. Ben Revere and Mark Lowe

AA and the front office had one hell of a week. Just before the deadline, the Jays made three trades on Friday.

With that in mind…here are my thoughts in 100 words or less:

Felix Doubront – A temporary fix. He started well, but struggled in his last few starts. Best of luck to him in Oakland.

Mark Lowe – I’m going to chalk up his performance on Saturday to nerves. I’m hoping it was a one-off because he was putting up great numbers in Seattle this season.

Ben Revere – Here’s a guy who was playing against the Blue Jays just a few short days ago. Good numbers and a better option for LF than the Valencia/Colabello/Carrera/(and sometimes) Goins platoon.

The picture below sums up my feelings about the past week. For the record, I’m kicking myself for leaving out LaTroy Hawkins ;)

I don’t need to put out a long-winded post about Thursday’s blockbuster trade. You’ve probably read plenty of those already. So I will just say the following:

I badly wanted the Blue Jays to get David Price last year at this time. I badly wanted the Blue Jays to get David Price this year. And now, my prayers have been answered!

Price became a success while pitching in the AL East. That’s what separates him from the other options.

Rental or not, this trade was worth making and worth giving up Norris, Boyd and Labourt.

If you’re concerned the Jays gave up too much for a possible rental, then look up Tom Candiotti, David Cone and Ricky Henderson. Hopefully, that calms your fears.
