Blue Jays Going For It: Toronto Trades For David Price
It's official: David Price, formerly of the Detroit Tigers, is not going to the L.A. Dodgers or the Texas Rangers or the Harlem Globetrotters. The Blue Jays, just a few days after springing for shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, have officially traded for Price, bolstering their rotation in order to chase the Yankees in the AL East.

So the Jays get Price and the Tigers, who appear to be punting on the 2015 season (to borrow a football term), get some farm pieces in Daniel Norris, Matt Boyd and Jairo Labourt.
Right now Toronto is an even 51-51, one game back of Baltimore and seven games back of New York in the division. They are also just two games back of the second Wild Card spot. A playoff spot is within reach -- even the division is winnable despite the Yanks' recent success -- and two monster trades in a week show that the Jays are all in for getting there.
And that's cool. We're into that:
