The Blue Jays aren't likely to move Scott Downs

Jul 30, 2010, 5:40 PM EDT

Scott Downs has been the best reliever available since the trade deadline Bacchanalia began, but Jayson Stark is now saying that he’s likely not going anywhere. Why? Mostly because the Blue Jays have continued to ask a hell of a lot for him.  They may just keep him, he says, and go to arbitration with him this winter.

Jon Paul Morosi, however, is saying that the Twins — though probably not able to swing a deal — are still holding out a bit of interest.  Which would be a tragedy for me on a personal level. That’s because if the Twins were willing to trade Wilson Ramos for Matt Capps, they’d probably trade Justin Morneau and cash for Downs, which would give Gleeman a coronary, and then I’d be stuck writing this blog all by myself.

    Of course they could always trade Morneau for Downs, Overbay and Bautista… I’m sure the Jays would do that!!!

    That one works. They Jays will not trade Downs for a “suspect”. There is no reason to give him away.
