This is a really good article on the trade that touches on my feelings concerning Reyes
Reyes is a HUGE upgrade on Escobar...he won the batting title 2 seasons ago, steals 40 bags in his sleep and gets on base....the blue jays have a great clubhouse full of Latin Americans...I think this is a tremendous move.
The pitchers acquired will also take pressure off Romero And Morrow, and should also help hem develop their stuff learning from these type of veterans.
