And Please Please Please do not let Sir Sidney shut us down.
As we discussed today a little in the comments to this morning's post, the Jays traded a player to be named later to the Pirates for IF Jose Bautista. The Jays acquire a utility infielder in a nothing deal, and guess what? Just like that, we have a new HR leader (though technically he starts back at 0 as he is switching leagues). Still pretty sad.
Out for a little dinner date, but will be back for most of the game, I'd imagine. Let's go Jays!
