Yesterday, Buster Olney broke the news that the Blue Jays were making OF Alex Rios available in trade talks to address their rotation issues. This morning I am reading Richard Griffin's Toronto Star column and see this:
The only way Lind and McGowan don't get JP the pitcher he wants is because his off-season moves send the signal he has no idea what he has in Lind and other saavy GM's will refuse to act otherwise and low-ball him.
Hey! Doesn't Lind bat left-handed?
The bold-face type is mine. Shouldn't that read, "It would require, at minimum, Brad Penny as an enticement to wrest Alex Rios from the Blue Jays?"
And how do you put Jon Lieber in the same discussion as Brad Penny? The Phils would have to give a lot more than just Jon Lieber to land Rios.
