07:32 AM ET 01.29 | For teams looking to deal before pitchers and catchers report, time is running out. [The Toronto Blue Jays] look like the team best-positioned to make an impact move. They could easily wind up making more than one big, late move, in fact. Multiple impactful starting pitchers of interest remain -- most prominently free agents Ervin Santana and Ubaldo Jimenez, plus trade candidate Jeff Samardzija -- and with the Blue Jays' two No. 1 picks both protected from loss related to free-agent signings, they could potentially pick up one, or even both top free-agent hurlers, without substantially hurting their draft situation. ... One executive who knows Jimenez well says the urbane right-hander would be a good fit for Toronto, a place some others are loathe to play. The same may be said for Santana.

Why would somebody loathe Toronto?

For like...4 years. Man I'd kill for a real ballpark here.

It breaks my heart seeing these new beautiful parks with natural grass. SkyDome (not Rogers Centre) was cool the first couple of visits but lacks charm and character.

Don't forget, though. Jiminez has been a vegan since 1994.

Your in depth knowledge of players dietary preferences never ceases to amaze me.

i think the media is trying to improve some top interest in these free agents except,,,the draft pick still in place and not to mention all these free agents are full of wrecked prone-injuries as well!!
and how can you avoid that??by not signing them to a long term contract its that simple!!

I'd agree, but I'd also assume that the Blue Jays would have to offer more money than, say Atlanta, or any other middle of the road team in the US.

except none of these players worthed much money now days know why??
all of them had bad reputation as injury-prone players just like that!!
