Blue Jays Make Trade With 'Stros While In Hub

As the Toronto Blue Jays prepare to face the Red Sox in a three-game set at Fenway, they have made a blockbuster 10-player deal with the Houston Astros. Toronto sent RHP Francisco Cordero, OF Ben Francisco, along with minor leaguers, RHP Joe Musgrove, RHP Asher Wojciechowski, LHP David Rollins and C Carlos Perez to Houston.

The Blue Jays get back RHP Brandon Lyon, LHP J.A. Happ and RHP David Carpenter. No word on when the new Blue Jays will arrive in Boston. Lyon, of course, was involved in the trade that brought World Series hero Curt Schilling to the Red Sox in November of 2003.
