How Drew you do, Mr. Storen?

Just like his predecessor, Mr. Atkins decided to disturb the calmness of my Friday night with a trade. But hey, I’m not bitter. Not bitter at all.

Anyway….onto the scribbled thoughts:

Drew Storen is a solid late-inning reliever, who goes along nicely with Brett Cecil and Roberto Osuna. He’s also an insurance policy in case – Baseball Gods forbid – Osuna suffers second year setbacks. My only concern is his transition to the American League. Fortunately, Storen has a 3.19 ERA and 1.09 WHIP in 40 interleague games, according to Baseball-Reference.com.

Sorry to see Ben Revere go, but as everyone on this planet has pointed out, there’s plenty of depth in the Jays’ outfield. He was a terrific leadoff hitter with great speed. He was also a much better left fielder than some of the other players that played the position in 2015.

My favourite Revere moment was the Spider Man catch in Texas during the regular season.

Overall, I like the trade. Atkins used a surplus from one area and put it towards an area that needed attention.
