For those that have never seen one of our Roster Trees, we go over how all of the players were acquired.
It works like 6 degrees of separation. By searching back to the origin of all the way back until a player is signed, drafted or purchased.
It totally gives you an idea on how the franchise has fared.
The Blue Jays have seen EE bash out several seasons worth of awesome since then.
Of course the blockbuster deals the franchise in the winter of 2012 are still roaming rampant for the rosters.
So far there is no incredible star given the other way, in which the team has suffered drastically.
Time will tell the toll on all deals.
Adam Lind is the only player in the everyday lineup that was drafted by the organization.
Also nailing EE down for a 3 YR deal worth only $29 MIL was brilliant. Right now the burly 1B is in 2nd for HR since the beginning of 2012, with 98 big flies.
Anthopoulos picked up Brett Lawrie for Shaun Marcum, who is not even in the Majors currently.
Out of the players that St. Louis received for Rasmus, they lost everyone. Marc Rzepczynski was traded to the Tribe for a Minor Leaguer.
Jose Bautista (33) 3B/RF: August 21, 2008: Traded by the Pittsburgh Pirates to the Toronto Blue Jays for a player to be named later. The Toronto Blue Jays sent Robinzon Diaz (August 25, 2008) to the Pittsburgh Pirates to complete the trade.
