Man, once those Canadians get up a head of steam, it's hard to stop them. Toronto continued their Hunt For Blue October by laying out even more Queen Elizabeths on a two-year deal for Melky Cabrera. Reportedly, the deal gives Cabrera $16 million to play left field for the Jays and add to their formidable lineup. We're glad that BenCher did not get tempted by the JuiceMan—whose inflated 2011-2012 numbers are clearly due to his performance enhancement activity. Nevertheless, further strengthening of an AL East team places more pressure on the Sox GM to get something done here in Beantown.
