Castro was DFA'd by the Rockies today. I thought he had a decent future, but things not going well for him.

That outfield.....yikes. Not that Upton would have made it a whole lot better mind you.

They HAVE to have another idea though...no? Wait for Pompey to come back? Maybe take a run at Pagan or Crisp?

yeesh thats ugly.

I guess they are banking on Pillar taking most of the balls in the middle and Pearce and Bats making up with their production at the plate

Zeke seems to have a morale boosting intangible that is hard to measure

I'm not an Upton fan, but I can't understand this move at all. Are we really going to start the season with an outfield like this? Only makes sense if there's a deal in place for Pagan.

Agreed, can't recall the Jays starting a season with a worse outfield

When Jose gets hurt, yikes are they in trouble...

The only ugly part of it is Zeke (really don't get the love affair they have for him). He should be your 4th outfielder not on your opening day line-up. Seriously Atkins... Angel Pagan is right there, he switch hits, put up a two win season last year, had a good WBC for PR, defends a corner fine.

Don't get releasing Upton either.

2011 outfield opening day for the Jays: Snider LF, Rajai Davis CF, Bautista RF??

So is Zeke going to be the Jays full time LFer?

As bad as Upton was he is still a better option than Carrera, just IMO. (edit: what Parallex said)

Anyways seeing Pearce at first is a relief.

The issue i have with losing upton is the Jays have two Outfielders on the roster now. Carrera and Pillar.

Bautista and Pearce are liabilities and shouldnt probably play OF every day.

Carrera cannot play center field.

Goins is redundant.
