JPA deserves the call-up with the season he has been having at Triple AAA. Hopefully they do not call up Raul Chavez who is also at Triple AAA.

If JPA does get the call up Jerolman should move up to Triple AAA.

Should be some interesting roster moves in the next couple of week

It wouldn't send a good message to JPA. But, nothing is impossible with the management.

If it is JPA he should get a fair chunk of playing time not just Molina every day and JPA once a week or off the bench.

Just what I was thinking. If/When JPA is officially called up I'll change the title again.

That's too bad for Buck, but it should be exciting to see how JPA does. I'm not as high on him as everyone else but the way he's played he's earned a shot.

I'd rather he just came up in September but thats just me. I always find it more difficult when you know he's going down in 15 days regardless of performance.

If he plays good or bad, he goes down wondering if he could have or should have done more to earn a spot.

I just prefer it when the player knows he's earned a spot and he'll get a chance to play through some tough times. I think clubs know it too because they sometimes bypass specs in this type of situtation. I know all you dudes with mancrushes definately won't agree but most times clubs will bypass people like JPA when its just a DL callup

Buck's eligible to return on either the 19th or 20th (dunno if today counts), but that would be assuming the thumb heals in less time than that. If JPA's hitting (and perhaps more importantly, if Cito feels comfortable with the way he's handling the staff) they could just keep him up and give Buck more time to rest until the rosters expand. Or, it's not inconceivable for them to shorten the rest of their bench for ~1 week by holding 3 catchers once they activate Buck, who keep in mind can also play some first base. They've got some options in this situation, though it probably does all come back to how often Cito's gonna play him. If he's not might as well ship him back to Vegas for the rest of the year.

Ugh.. unfortunately so true. He's really not been as good as his numbers indicate. Take away that monster April and he's very pedestrian. Fans will cut him some slack though given he'll hit 25-30 homers.


really wish we could have found a buyer for him at the trade deadline.

No way anyone's taking on that contract. Im SURE Wells is on Waivers right now while every GM in the league is thinking "not in a million years". Given the Jays only have what... 40-45 million or so allocated to players next season? I am shocked he isn't crippling the team more. At least this year he's serviceable.... even if he's not spectacular.

Edit: Forgot the original topic lol :D JPA is gonna be a stud... a bit of what Rotoworld had to say (my apologies if it was posted before)

Blue Jays purchased the contract of C J.P. Arencibia from Triple-A Las Vegas.
The 24-year-old top prospect has produced a ridiculous 31 home runs and and a .998 OPS in 379 at-bats with Triple-A Las Vegas this season. He'll get a real shot to shine in the big leagues while John Buck nurses a cut on his hand for the next two weeks, and he should do well with the opportunity. Arencibia is worth checking out in almost every mixed league.

Vernon is on pace for 33 HR and a .275 avg. Before he signed that mamonth contract he never hit more than 33 hrs. He hit above .300 twice through a whole season. If you ask me we are getting our moneys worth. Why do fans expect Albert pujols numbers. When JP gave that contract to him we all knew he wasnt going to do much better than his 06 or 03 numbers. So where did all this expectation come from?

Probably top 5 worst current contracts in baseball though.

I'd take Vernon Wells over Soriano and Gary Matthews Jr. for sure, even if Mathews is half the price.

And if we're talking history, Carl Pavano to the Yankees was epic failure as was Jason Schmidt to the Dodgers.

There's a great article I think on Yahoo that goes into this in great detail - actually.. Ill go find it :)

Well, to put it simply, he was paid after a season where he was a 5.7 WAR player. He's being paid like a 4-5 WAR player, he should produce like one. In the 4 years before the extension, he averaged 4.1 WAR. He should at least be averaging that under his new contract. This season he's sitting at 2.8, but with the way he's been trending, he'll wind up with a maximum of 3.5. It's a huge upgrade over the 3 WAR COMBINED he put up in the 3 years immediately following him signing, but we need much more production from that money.

I agree - they should have known better...

The roids thing is pure spectulation though... I dont think he was but we can agree to disagree here.

Also having guys bat in front/behind you is overrated in baseball.

I don't understand why some of you focus on his contract so much. It's not the NHl where we have a salary cap and his contract is screwing up our future.

I realize there are options but Cito doesn't strike me as a person who would give JPA playing time over Buck, 3 C's or not. Maybe your right and it ends up being a blessing.

The way I see it is, whats he going to get 6-7 games and then he's outta here? I just alway think DL callups aren't great for young players, and I think the consensus in MLB agrees because players like JPA are frequently bypassed for DL callups. Many times we've hoped for a kid only to see a vet or journeyman get the call instead.

Arencibia, who joins the Jays today, has already been told he will return to Triple-A Las Vegas in two weeks, given that Buck’s thumb injury is expected to heal well before he is eligible to leave the 15-day disabled list. But expect Arencibia to return in September, after his minor-league season ends, then bid for regular duty next spring.

Anthopoulos made it clear on Thursday that Arenecibia “is certainly here to play for the two-week period.”

“He’ll get the majority of playing time, but again, with him being a young player, I don’t know that it will be exactly the equivalent of what John Buck enjoyed,” Anthopoulos said.

With Buck enjoying a career year, “this is certainly not the way we wanted it to happen,” the GM said of Arencibia’s promotion after Buck needed three stitches to repair a cut caused by a foul tip Wednesday.

Why do they feel the need to jerk around their prospects? Travis Snider not playing everyday at the beginning of the year and in the 9-hole when he did? Spending 2 extra weeks in AA? Now JP Arencibia not even playing as much as Buck did, probably not playing tonight? I'm sure he'll be in the 9-hole. Then in 2 weeks he's going to be sent down only to be called right back up again. In September he'll be riding the pine to John friggin Buck. Why couldn't they have just traded Buck and cleared the path for JPA? Now that you've called up JPA you keep him here and if that means trading Buck or trading or releasing Molina you do it.

Whats wrong with Snider batting 9th?? Im sure he isnt complaining. Hes just glad he is not in Vegas. Im sure he will get moved up as he starts hitting better. Once he figures out how to hit a major league fastball i can see him batting near cleanup

These guys are young. We are not competing. Why throw them into the fire?? Ease them in. Avoid injury. When these guys get a taste of the Major league life they would only want it more and would not take it for granted

And you dont trade a player for the sake of it. If the jays get a return better than their pick they would have traded him by now. Im sure teams negotiating for Buck offered peanuts.

1. Batting 9th is embarrassing, it is an insult especially for a 3/4 type power hitter.

2. Injuries happen in the minor leagues too.

3. There is no guarantee of a type B status. Buck is only clinging to it and with this injury he may fall out. There is a real possibility of losing him for nothing and keeping him is even worse for JPA's development.

You dont have to love every player on your team, but to say he used steroids is ridiculous. Especially when theres 0 evidence of that. The last 3 seasons he was injured u ****in ******. Even than in 08 he was on pace for 30hr and a .300 avg.

I love reading yourposts :)

Manager Cito Gaston said that the recently recalled J.P. Arencibia "will probably do most of the catching," while he's with the club.

Arencibia was called up to take the spot of the injured John Buck. He is, however, not playing Friday, nor will he play Sunday. The reason for that is because Gaston wants Jose Molina to catch Brandon Morrow Sunday, and Saturday is a day game after a night game. Arencibia has had a monster year at Triple-A with 31 home runs and a .999 OPS. He's worth looking at in mixed leagues.

He will probably play all next week - but I think its really sad he isn't playing this evening. He should be.

Sunday actually makes sense to me... at least he's playing tomorrow - ill update my fantasy league accordingly :)

Just what I was thinking. If/When JPA is officially called up I'll change the title again.

That's too bad for Buck, but it should be exciting to see how JPA does. I'm not as high on him as everyone else but the way he's played he's earned a shot.

Hey Twitchy, I was wondering why you are not so high on JPA? Just curious to hear some reasons...
