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.
“It doesn’t make sense to me,” outfielder Josh Reddick tells @susanslusser "We traded our best player the past two years.” #Athletics— Steve Fainaru (@SteveFainaru) November 29, 2014

It was a light day yesterday. Not many comments. It was expected.

No GIFs either. Unbelievable.
Honorable Mod Mention
No HMM awards to give out. All the mods were out shopping for the Pinstripe Alley Writer's Secret Santa Spectacular.
- A's/Blue Jays trade: Thoughts?
- Best princess/queen ever?
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.
