Blue Jays Trade Deadline Rumour Thread – July 31, 2012

Check back for the latest trades, rumours and updates.

Update (4:15 pm) It appears deadline will pass without a Blue Jays deal.

-Toronto traded fan favorite OF Travis “lunchbox” Snider to the Pittsburgh Pirates for RP Brad Lincoln.

Quick Take: I know fans are disappointed but the reality is that Snider’s value was just never that high league wide. Last year the team would have been lucky to get a bag of balls so adding a big dependable RP (59 ip, 2.73 era, 9.1 k/9, 2.1 bb/9) has to be considered a positive.

-Toronto trades Eric Thames to the Seattle Mariners for RP Steve Delabar.

Quick take: Getting anything useful for Thames at this juncture is nice. Delabar has a big arm with a 10.9 k/9 in 43 career innings.

-Blue Jays are still reportedly interested in adding SP Matt Garza from the Cubs. Ken Rosenthal says Jays are a good fit for trade.

    The Jays seem to have overpaid on all three deals. Three prospects, two ML OF, and spare parts for five relievers. *Sigh*

    If the jays get garza I will jump for joy and it might make the pain of losing snider go away! Although I do realize snider was not working out here

    I am not that sad to see Snider go, yeah I would’ve preferred a bigger package for say a Matt Garza but Brad Lincoln is at least serviceable. We’ve seen brief glimpses from Snider and then that big hole in his swing starts to show, again.
