Just a few various links, stories and rumours from around the web involving the Blue Jays:
-As per MLBTR the Blue Jays are the leaders to sign Venezuelan shortstop Yeltsin Gudino, writes Ben Badler of Baseball America. Gudino is a well-rounded talent who has also received serious interest from the Rangers and A’s in the past.
-Blue Jays president and CEO Paul Beeston isn’t ready to give up on the team this season, writes Chris Toman of MLB.com. He also isn’t ready to give up on the coaching staff. “We started out at 12-24 and made a managerial change, but we’re not going to do that right now,” Beeston said. “I think you look back at 1989 and just look back at what can be after what was. I think we have a very good team and a better team than our record.”
