All the Blue Jays rumors are about pitching, which is good, that’s what the team needs.

But Zack Wheeler is off the board.

The deal:

And the Braves signed Cole Hamels to a 1-year, $18 million contract. That was more than I thought he’d get but good on the Braves for going out to get him.

Jon Mororsi tells us that the Jays are being ‘incredibly aggressive in going after free agent starting pitchers.

Whether or not aggressive leads to successful is another question. They should have lots of money to spend, the trick will be to find the ones willing to join a rebuilding team. I’d think there are ones out there who would be willing to help build something in Toronto. Finding who they are will be the tough part.

They are talking to is Michael Pineda apparently:

On a very very sad note, an SB Nation writer and her husband, Jennifer and Josh Eisen were hit by a drunk driver Sunday. He died she’s badly injured. There is a Go Fund Me set up for them. If you have a couple of dollar, please consider giving.
