    Still not a good deal for the Royals. They'll be optimized with Alex Gordon batting second and a real leadoff hitter starting things (Lorenzo Cain). That's why Melky is so easily traded, imo. He's productive and doesn't serve a role on the future roster.

      when either the offense or pitching is good it`s a .500 club, so if both sides do well than i don`t see how the wild card isn`t in the Jays`picture...

      don`t give me this Sox and Yankees stuff, because the Rays proved another team can do well in the divison

          Did he Direct Message pictures of himself to you though?
          Is that a rash?

              The chip on the shoulder look gets me.

                I won't give you the Sox/Yankees stuff...I'll give you the Sox/Yankees/Rays stuff.

                  Haha yeah. It's going to be hard. Don't give me this Yankees/Sox stuff? Please. Before Tampa broke through in 2008 (and their window may have already passed), you have to go back to the 1997 Orioles for another team from the division to make the playoffs. And I certainly don't think that team presented earlier will be the one to do it.

                  • C.Bucholz has a stress fracture in his lower back.
                    Most likely, he's out for the season

                      I hear he can possibly make it back for the post season... This makes the Bedard trade look better (probably why they were so gung-ho to get a starter)

                      Though I do have to say I am still not a huge fan of the trade. If he helps us down the stretch great but I hate getting these oft injured guys that once were good or once had potential...

                      • Yeah, that's a *****. I'm just curious about why it took so long to find that out. He went through like six different doctors, most of which told him he was alright to pitch. Not saying he's hearing what he wants to hear(The team actually made him go) or inferring anything from the end result, but it is a little odd.

                        • Yea its deffinatly interesting... They shut him down for a while too. Its just weird how it takes over a month to figure that out. I will say I am glad how the team handled it. With 2 of our top 3 starters out, they didn't rush him back.

                          • I forgot who said this but I heard it on the radio the other day. They said that Bedard has the the health of JD Drew and the PR skills of John Lackey so he'll be perfect a Red Sox.

                            • I think Keith Law said something about him being the only Canadian he's met who's a complete DB. I'll take the production of a JD Drew in pitcher form down the stretch run, though. He's proven he can do well in the AL East as well.

                                I still think it was a good trade as you didn't give up much, but the fact he did well 3-4 years ago in the AL East means nothing to me after two shoulder surgeries.
