How many ways is this guy going to screw up? The latest blunder is the handling of Reed Johnson. Cutting him in favour of that retread Shannon Stewart was already colossally stupid (of course JP has screwed up with retreads before, see Thomas, Frank).
So what happens? Well, he signs with the Cubs of course! I know, I know, you're asking "So what did the Jays get?". That would be...nothing!
I love this quote:
"We've been working on guys for the outfield for a while, and all of a sudden, probably the best fit in a lot of ways kind of just fell into our lap," general manager Jim Hendry said. "We've always liked him. We've tried to acquire him a few times the last four or five years from Toronto. He's really a hard-nosed player. He's an extremely good hitter against left-handed pitching."
LOL! Jim, just wait for JP to offer him up for free!
