Winter Meetings Day 2 continued: Austin Jackson Traded, Doumit, Bo Sox

  • Austin Jackson is on his way to Detroit, where he has a lot to live up to while taking over from Curtis Granderson. Not only does this mean Jackson won't be the addition in CF the Jays were supposedly hoping for, but it also means the chances are slim that the Yankees will part with the remainder of their top prospects in order to land Doc. Unless we're missing something, a package of Montero and Hughes or Chamberlain would be too weak to woo the Jays, even with more ammunition added.
  • The Jays and Pirates are again into talks over Ryan Doumit and speculation is that it may include the disgruntled Jeremy Accardo. If it's a 1 for 1 deal, it seems like a fairly even trade overall.
  • The Red Sox made a couple of under the radar signings, inking ex-Jay Fabio Castro and Kason Gabbard. Fabio did fairly well last year, but hasn't received a real shot in the bigs yet. 
  • The Red Sox are also said to not want to include either Clay Buchholz or Casey Kelly in a deal, which would basically end talks between the Jays and Red Sox about Roy Halladay. 
  • If the Red Sox rumor is true, it leaves Alex with TB, CHW, LAA, PHI, NYM, and the now prospect depleted NYY as possible trading partners. It's looking dimmer and dimmer. I guess we'll most likely get to enjoy 1 more year of Doc, and hopefully Bret, Ricky, and Marc have their learning caps on.
