The Jays need and should win this to say the least. It feels as if every time we have that feeling the Jays ultimately disappoint. Anyway today the Jays officially DFA Royce Clayton and called up Rey Olemedo. Olmedo sports an impressive .290 average however he doesn't hit for much power and it shows in his OPS of 687. However the career 171 games in the bigs is a huge experience plus. I have yet to see him and we'll have more to say when we get a look.
