Jays get Rasmus in Blockbuster Deal

It's been a hectic day in Jays land and we'll have more tomorrow about what this deal means for the Jays, but let's take a quick look at how it breaks down.

The Jays sent reliever Jason Frasor and prospect Zach Stewart to the White Sox for starting pitcher Edwin Jackson and the grossly overpaid Mark Teahan. Jackson was then traded to the Cardinals along with Octavio Dotel, Marc Rzepcynski, and Corey Patterson for Rasmus and pitchers PJ Walters,  Trever Miller and former Jay Brian Tallet.

So, to recap – TOR IN – Rasmus, Walters, Tallet, Teahan, Miller
                     TOR OUT – Frasor, Stewart, Dotel, Rzepcynski, Patterson

The Jays get the most talented player in the deal and basically lose a solid pitching prospect along with a bunch of decent relievers – a surprisingly low value for the talented Rasmus. 

Tomorrow we'll take a closer look at the deal and at Colby Rasmus.
