Often in life, there are the things you want to do and the things you should do. Rarely does it seem like those two things ever converge into one path, but this was actually the case with the Toronto Blue Jays and J.P. Arencibia.
Earlier today, I was perusing MLB Trade Rumors only to find this extremely brilliant bit in marketing. The image of Vernon Wells and I believe DeWayne Wise colliding in the outfield was in fact a block ad for a personal injury lawyer. Not sure if this was photoshopped in or not, but the lawyer’s name is in the background.
He was the man who made the impossible seem possible.
After employing five different players to man second base during the 2013 season, the Toronto Blue Jays finally managed to find someone who could make the routine plays at second base. And it only took them three-quarters of the season to find him.
They travelled to Europe, they pulled pranks, they worked out and found some time to lounge by the pool. The Toronto Blue Jays had some fun during the first month of the off-season, as you’ll see in this off-season diary.
