MLB Trade Rumors: Toronto Blue Jays

Arizona is a hot spot for MLB with new law - The Boston Globe:

"I doubt there will be a team better equipped to make a deal at the deadline than Toronto. Armed with 25 area scouts and 21 pro scouts — more than any other team — the Jays will have the most current reports on all organizations...Vernon Wells has underperformed at times during his career, but now, with a healthy wrist, he has looked more like the player who was awarded a seven-year, $126 million deal that runs through 2014.
Wells has a no-trade clause, but would a big-market team like Boston or New York be willing to take on the remaining $86 million (plus $12.5 million this year) for the 31-year-old center fielder?...If the Jays are hopelessly out of it, they’d try to move players such as Lyle Overbay, Alex Gonzalez, Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion, Jose Molina, John Buck, Scott Downs, and Shaun Marcum."

No one is going to Kenny Williams the Jays this season and relieve them of Vernon Wells.

As for Jose Molina, the Yankees and Red Sox may want a quality defensive catcher.

Shaun Marcum? My guess is Phillipe Aumont, Tyson Gillies and Juan Ramirez may not be enough.
