Sea obviously was one of those teams he wasn't willing to play for under any circumstances.

    That doesn't mean the same holds true for BOS, TOR, etc.

    Look for AA to pick up a right handed hitter for the final bench spot, and maybe as a platoon for Lind.

    I definately think if we are leading the division or in a race come trade deadline AA will go get a bat.

    I'd love to have him but giving up a draft pick is kinda lame. Plus, I dont know if he really wants to settle for a 1 year deal, nor do I think the Jays have the funds to sign him. We'll see though.

    I'd think Detroit would be the most likely to sign him considering Valverde is gone (i think?) and they need a new closer regardless.

    He got Mickey Storey through. Most teams do this to an extent. It's like a lottery ticket...you have to play a lot of numbers to finally sneak one in.

    He did sneak another one through no? I thought Beck got through but it might be too early in the morning for me

    I think he claimed Beck back, not sure he DFA him afterwards.

    Does it mean he went through waivers or that there is still time for someone else to claim him?

    No idea. I think teams have 10 days to try to claim a player who has been DFA'd but that's just a vague memory.

    I think Lowen is better off pitching for team canada, cus the lineups stacked but the rotation is garbage. Even the relief pitching is pretty good

    After reading his wiki page, it seems like he stopped pitching due to an injury so i doubt they will give him that, maybe at relief but starting seems like a big stretch. But then again, what do i know.
