so... Wednesday i said we need another bat and another pitcher. Now it's just a pitcher.
many have mentioned marcum, we'll see if there's actually any truth to that rumor, but that would slide him into the 4 or 5 slot and push happ to swingman.
some have mentioned mccarthy, but there is risk - he's coming off a mega-concussion, and i have to believe there will be some sort of sentimental pull from oakland to just retain him.
I'd suggest ryan dempster. Yes he's old and a national-league pitcher his entire career, but he's reliable for the 4/5 spot, wont want too much money or term, and as a bonus, is a canuck. He's exactly the type of free agent this blue-jays resurgence should be able to attract.
Another option is Roy Oswalt, who again is old, will come cheap, and not want much term. He would compete with Happ for the 5 spot and they could actually switch in and out of the rotation depending on who is playing well at a given time.
