Spring training TTM

I sent out a pair of spring training requests and got one of them back. Scott Downs, closer for the Blue Jays. To give you a sense why the Blue Jays probably cannot compete with the Yanks and Red Sox, Downs is the Blue Jays highest paid pitcher at four million dollars a year.

As much as I think it would be a good idea to have Downs be the closer (he was to be last year until he got hurt), the Jays acquired Kevin Gregg from the Cubs and will likely go with him.

Thanks to Mr. Downs for signing for me.
