MLB trade rumors: Blue Jays eyeing Headley, other trade-market help
July 19, 2014INDIANA SPORTS PAGE
The Blue Jays have reached the point where they need to do something, anything to try and slow the slide that’s threatening to tank a once-promising season.
After a win on June 6, they were 14 games over .500 and leading the AL East by six full games. Since then, they’re just 11-24 and entered the weekend tied with the Yankees, four games behind the first-place Orioles. Not only have they stopped winning games, but first baseman Edwin Encarnacion, third baseman Brett Lawrie and DH Adam Lind have all landed on the disabled list over the past few weeks.
It’s been a disaster, to say the least.
