In a shocking turn of events Frank Thomas was released by the Blue Jays. But you already knew that. I'm not going to analyze the decision (though we should start a section here at MOE called "Things we know more than the Jays." It could include things like Jays should release Clayton, draft Tulowitzki, start Marcum and McGowan over Ohka and John Thomson etc.), but lets look at what we do now.
Against righties we're looking good with:
Against Lefties we have some questions:
LF: Stewart over Lind
DH: Insert Lefty DH here.
There is no obvious in the organization choice here. I guess we could go with Barajas at DH, but that hurts my feelings. So I suggest a small trade ... for Josh Phelps. Yes, Josh Phelps, here me out. He's a lefty masher. And is stuck in the St.Louis organization. I'm sure we can get him for a song, and he'd actually work for this team.
Sign Barry Bonds. I'd love to hear the media's take on Frank Thomas being replaced by Barry. Oh, the high horses that they could stand on!
