07:47 AM ET 01.06 | Very few seasons imploded as the Blue Jays' did in Toronto. There were two disasters in the city of Toronto in 2013 -- Rob Ford and the Blue Jays. One was an out-of-control mayor who could have starred in "Animal House" given his behavior, and the other a baseball team. ... As of now, Toronto's biggest signing has been Roy Halladay, who re-signed with the Blue Jays and then retired. For a team that probably needs two starting pitchers, Navarro has been their biggest acquisition. So, what's going on? Anthopoulos likes to strike in secrecy. Sometimes his own talent evaluators don't know what he's doing. We know through sources that he has been in on Jimenez, Garza, and Santana. Hush-hush, too, is his stance on Tanaka. The Jays have inquired about David Price and Jeff Samardzija.

You also fail to mention the Argos losing in the semis to Hamilton at home and not going to the Grey Cup.

It's amazing how easy it is to operate in complete obscurity and fly under the radar when your team plays in the same division as Boston and New York and you finish 4th or 5th for the better part of 20 years.

Look for Alex to acquire Gardner form the Yankees in a three way deal, with Jansen going to Cleveland and Masterson going to the Yankees. Cleveland will acquire cash and other players from the Yankees.

Then look for Alex to Send Cecil and Rasmas to the Phillys for Hamel and Cezar Hernandez a 3A 2bman, and a whoe lot of cash. Their might be other add ons Like a back end starter-Minor league 2b.
