Deadline Bantering

MLB: Toronto Blue Jays at Kansas City Royals Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

We have a bit more than 4 hours until the trade deadline.

There isn’t much for Blue Jays news, other than Trent Thornton comes off the IL tomorrow, to make the start against the Orioles. He’ll be followed by Sanchez, Borucki and Pannone (presuming none of them are traded).

The Jays still have many players who might be in a different uniform tomorrow.

With Luke Volt injured, I wonder if the Yankees are on the phone to the Jays talking about Smoak?

And there is this:

I’m hoping that they keep Aaron. I hate trading guys at the bottom of their value.

Let’s just run a series of polls:

Today’s lineup. No Vlad in today. Interesting that Smoak and Galvis are in the lineup, which might suggest there is no trade imminent for either. Or it might just mean we don’t have a enough guys on the bench to have them sit. I kind of like Bo in the leadoff spot.

Buddy Boshers is there just in case a pitcher is traded. I’m thinking that if Giles isn’t traded, he could end up on the IL.
