Back in July the Blue Jays and the Astros struck a deal involving ten players. It was one of the larger trades you’ll ever see while also containing among the least amount of talent tonnage you’ll ever see. Classic sound and fury kind of deal.
The best player in the deal at the time it was announced was The Player to Be Named Later. He’s been around the league a long time and knows how to play the game the right way. Every team out there has sought The Player to Be Named Later at one time or another. His reputation is that good.
But now he’s been swapped out for an actual player: Kevin Comer, a right-handed pitching prospect the Jays drafted in the second round in 2011. He’s only been in rookie ball so far, having pitched ten games. He’s a marginal prospect at best now, but he did manage to handle the hard-partying nightlife of Bluefield, West Virginia so far, so that’s something.
