Random stuff worth mentioning after the trade deadline

The Blue Jays sold five players prior to Major League Baseball’s non-waiver trade deadline — Steve Pearce, J.A. Happ, Roberto Osuna, John Axford, and Aaron Loup — but still have a handful of possible rental players left to move in August. Uhhhh six actually I completely forgot about The Final Boss. Whoops!


John Axford traded to the Dodgers

The trades! Keep them coming! Good Canadian boy John Axford got to fulfill a dream of playing for his childhood team this year when the Jays inked him to a one-year deal. Now he’ll get to try to win a World Series with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

Osuna apparently among the players the Jays are shopping

Roberto Osuna is set to return from his suspension from Major League Baseball on Aug. 5, and while the front office previously indicated that he will remain the team’s closer, it appears that might not be the case. According to reports from Jerry Crasnick and Ken Rosenthal, Osuna is among the players the Blue Jays…


Looking back at the Blue Jays’ last #HugWatch: So long, Snider

In the pantheon of Blue Jays trades, the Travis Snider for Brad Lincoln swap of 2012 is easily among the least earth-shattering moves in franchise history. But it was meaningful for two reasons; one, it was the end of an era for one of the franchise’s most-hyped prospects. That trade was also the last #HugWatch…
