Desperation move by Reagins/Moreno?

Wells taking the LF? and Bourjos stays center?
Precisely correct imo. They won't ever say it but it will look like an epic failure of an offseason if all they got to show for is two middle relievers. I think it definitely was a knee-jerk reaction.

Wells is a good player who will add some needed power to the line-up and he's a good defensive player as well. The outfield possibly with Bourjos in centre and Wells in Left and Hunter in right will be impressive.

The Jays and Angels are my favourite teams but I think, atm, the Jays win the trade just based on salaries. Napoli will put up similar numbers to Wells for much less and Rivera is just loose change.

Also too bad Abreu still around as I think Vlad would be a better DH.
