Can you believe it?
TORONTO – I’m heading out for a bit, but I’ve got to toss the latest news on here: The Blue Jays have signed Rod Barajas to be their backup catcher. Yes, the same catcher that backed out of a two-year offer last winter and kind of ticked the Jays off.
I’ll weigh in on this a bit more later, but I am and I am not surprised. Earlier this week, I was looking at available catchers and saw Barajas’ name and thought to myself, "They wouldn’t consider…nooo, who am I kidding? I mean, they liked him last year and he’s available, but…no way. I’m not even going to waste time considering it." Then, the press release lands in my inbox tonight. Gotta love it.
