While the rest of baseball opened presents and ate their Christmas dinners, the Blue Jays and Diamondbacks were working on a deal that brought Troy Glaus to Toronto for Orlando Hudson and Miguel Batista. Glaus had 37 HRs and 97 RBIs and if you ask me, would have looked good in a Red Sox uniform especially if we don't hang on to Manny or if Manny decides he's not going to play that hard.
The Blue Jays have improved themselves quite a bit this off-season. A.J. Burnett, B.J. Ryan, Lyle Overbay, and now Troy Glaus. They're going to be a solid team. We lost the season series to them in 2005 and 2006 won't be any easier. With the Yankees and Blue Jays in our division, we're looking at 38 games against solid teams and that's just within the divison.
