One year ago today, as announced in this post by Hugo, the Jays signed Kevin Millar to a minor league contract. And 3 years ago, on this date, the Jays signed Victor Zambrano to a minor league contract, also announced in a post by Hugo. In case you don't remember, Victor pitched a particularly awful 8 games, two of them starts, for the Jays. He was released with a 10.97 ERA.
With this sort of track record, I'm not checking the transactions wire all day.
