True...
But what version will show up?
The middling guy who is a .250 hitter with no power and who was with the 3rd team in 3 years, or the guy who hit .346 last season and won the all-star MVP?

Plus, if he failed another one, it would be 100 games suspension.
There are certainly risks with this deal.

Ken Rosenthal (@Ken_Rosenthal) already said the Jays are looking for one more starter.
Given last year's debacle, when 3 starters went down in a span of a week, AA is probably looking at one.
Fans won't know until it happens too, because AA never reveals his hand to anybody.

I added the depth to your list.

Their Bullpen is solid too...really like Lincoln, Delabar, and Janssen...hopefully Santos is what he was advertised to be last year.
The bullpen is probably what I like most about the team too.
There are some shut down types in there, and there are some good internal options (Cecil and quite possibly Happ, if AA got another starter).
If Oliver decides to pitch one more year, it gets even stronger.
