First of all, the BBWAA elected Bob Elliot of the Toronto Sun into the writers wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame today, as Elliot won the Spink Award. Congratulations to him, from what I have read it is a well deserved honor.

The Toronto Blue Jays traded for their likely closer of the present and future, netting Sergio Santos from the Chicago White Sox for top pitching prospect Nestor Molina. Kenny Williams then said this:
