Quick Hit: Toronto Blue Jays Potentially Get Worse

Just a quick hit this morning after reading the news that the Toronto Blue Jays claimed first baseman Justin Smoak from the Seattle Mariners. Speculation has run amok  that Toronto could move power hitting first baseman Adam Lind to fill some of their holes on the club and this claim may be a precursor to the speculation becoming a reality.

You have to think that Toronto, depending on what they received in return for Lind, would worsen with Smoak on the squad over Lind. Smoak has a career .224/.309/.380 batting line and has not yet hit for the power that Toronto would be losing with the loss of Lind.

This is good news for the Yankees unless the team decides to play Edwin Encarnacion and uses Lind and that plethora of pitching depth to acquire a Giancarlo Stanton.
