PSA Comments of the Day 11/29/14: Blue Jay Way

The Toronto Blue Jays have decided to join in on the AL East offseason fun. Last night, they traded away Brett Lawrie and three prospects for Josh Donaldson of the Athletics. That lineup looks a lot more dangerous now. Pitchers and catchers report in 82 days.

So long, sewage system!!!

Last night, the Toronto Blue Days and the Oakland Athletics completed a huge trade. The Blue Jays got all star third baseman Josh Donaldson in exchange for third baseman Brett Lawrie, rookie shortstop Franklin Barreto, and rookie pitchers Sean Nolin and Kendall Graveman. Wow. It's still too early to judge whom this trade benefits more, but the majority of fans from the Blue Jays & Athletics respective fanbases are saying the Blue Jays got the better end of the deal. Even current A's outfielder Josh Reddick is confused by this trade.

He's not wrong. Perhaps we'll soon see the method to Billy Beane's madness. Needless to say, good luck with that Blue Jays lineup now, Yankees pitching.

Song of the Day

Blue Jay Way by The Beatles

So yeah, between the Blue Jays, the Red Sox, and the Orioles, the Yankees pitching staff certainly has their work cut out for them this year. Perhaps they might want to bolster their starting rotation soon.

Please don't you be very long.
