The Blue Jays just became a little bit scarier. Yesterday's news, I know. But for all the talk about the AL East suddenly being a three-team division, this will be JP's fifth season as Toronto GM. Not to be too Murray-Chass-like, but what exactly had he done, before this offseason? I mean, besides wait for Delgado's insane contract to run out? (Four years, $68M! Not bad for a guy who made the All Star Team a whopping two times.) Is their farm system in better shape? Or is he just spending a lot of new-found money?
Also, do you think they might be willing to trade Greg Zaun? I'm a bit worried about the Red Sox backup catcher situation.
