    I wasn't mad about having him as our 6th starter... Btw wasn't he our opening day starter back in 2011?

    Wouldn't be surprised to see the assets from this deal flipped here.

    Lupe Chavez entered the 2016 season as the #20 prospect in the Blue Jays system, according to Baseball America. A Mexican, he'll turn 19 on December 3.

    The Blue Jays acquired him from Quintana Roo of the Mexican League on July 2, 2014. He's a converted outfielder who has a fastball, a changeup with "plus potential," and a curveball that he "locates well but needs more power."

    Chavez had been in the GCL, but I think he'll be moving up to Greeneville soon.

    Feldman was a little too consistent in suring up the middle relief, We can't be having none of that. Be gone Scotty!

    I called for the team to maximize his trade value now. I would have thought they would have gotten better prospects but I guess the market determines it.

    Thank you, sir :cool:

    I really do hope he pitches against us in this series and gives up a long ball or two. That would make me smile :) lol

    Luhnow turned these types of lottery tickets into Martes and Paulino.
