JA Happ Given 2 yr Deal and 5th spot in the Rotation
Just when you thought the Jays might suffer Ricky Romero for another 6 months north of the border. They make a move right out of the Gord Ash play book, sending a lost player way back to A Ball - complete with his huge guaranteed contract. The opportunity of him losing every fifth day in trying to figure himself out is not acceptable on a team that is built to win this year. Happ will be marginally better than a 500 pitcher, but on this club where offense will be easy to come by, Happ should be able to put up 15 wins. Where Romero who was struggling mightily would not be able to win 12 Games.
