How Drew you do, Mr. Storen?

January 9, 2016

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.

Lining up for a big finish!

Re. Ben Revere and Mark Lowe

August 2, 2015

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 πŸ˜‰
