Ray Olmedo claimed off waivers

Former Reds infielder Ray Olmedo was claimed off waivers by the Blue Jays. Little Ray Ray was popular with the Reds fans, and I'm sure many were hoping he cleared waivers. But Krivsky made it clear Olmedo didn't have a future with the organization. He's better off with a new team and a fresh start.

Welcome to the AL East, kid!

The Jays have also signed former Yankee backup catcher Sal Fasano to a minor league deal. Well, "Sal's Pals" should be happy. Toronto is closer to Philadelphia than a lot of the other options.

And former Yankee pitcher Shawn Chacon and his new team, the Pirates, have avoided arbitration. Details not announced yet, but he probably got around $4 million.

I always liked Chacon. Maybe the knee surgery will let him find that magic again.

Sal's Pals will probably come to the Bronx when we host the Jays.

Good point. We play them often enough.

They could also go to Baltimore for Orioles-Jays games.
