This may be a great opportunity for the Jays to dump some salary and bring up some rookies.

5 names of the blue jays that have been surfaceing around are Overbay, Rios, Scutaro, Hallay and Frasor.

JP lets get it done

Yeah, I'm sure Halladay will get through waivers all the way to the Yankees...

only guy who could clear waivers is Overbay. i dont think the rest will clear waivers, including Rios.

-----Likely to clear

14. Lyle Overbay, Jays 1B: Power slippage means he should clear.

And the player that we shudda/cudda/wudda had if only JP never hurt his feelings :D . Poor baby.

2. Adam Dunn, Nationals slugger: That $12 million salary for 2010 should scare anyone off. He was traded after the waiver deadline last year, and it could happen again. Belongs in the American League, a place he has yet to play.

-----Could Clear

4. Alex Rios, Jays outfielder: Sixty million is a lot, but he can play. The Giants have money. You never know

Another shudda/cudda/wudda for some.

3. Gil Meche, Royals pitcher: Only four wins and an $11 million salary. But he has talent.

-----Unlikely to clear
(Although there's always an outside chance in a couple of cases that a trade could be worked out with the claiming team.)

1. Roy Halladay, Jays starter: Sorry, he's stuck.

5. Marco Scutaro, Jays SS: Breakthrough year bodes well for his free agency, though.

12. Jason Frasor, Jays reliever: Having excellent season in Jays' 'pen.
