The only thing correct in this post is that Reyes won't be in Toronto very long. Assuming they have a press conference to introduce him to the media, he'll be on the next plane out about an hour after it ends. But he'll probably be playing for the Jays for the duration of his contract. Oh, and he'll leave Toronto the day after each season ends too.

(unless the Jays send along about $25-30 million . . hahahaha)
Oh, I guess one other correct thing is that Murphy and Duda should be playing 1B, 3B, or better yet, DH in the AL. But:
Swisher isn't taking 1 yr. or $8.5 million. Think 3/$39 or more.
Valdy is NOT an outfielder, he'll kill us as a regular CF.
Shoppach may be a last resort, but I think you will see a catcher come to us in a trade.
There are much better options for the lineup than what is mentioned above.
