Blue Jays Claim David Pauley

The Blue Jays announced that they claimed right-hander David Pauley off of waivers from the Angels. Toronto's 40-man roster is now full.

Two days ago the Angels designated Pauley for assignment for the second time in as many months. The 29-year-old has appeared in five MLB games this year and has a career ERA of 4.51 with 5.3 K/9, 2.9 BB/9 and a 47.7% ground ball rate. The Blue Jays have lost three fifths of their starting rotation to injuries, so Pauley will be a welcome addition to John Farrell's bullpen.

This is part of the Angels grand plan for seeking revenge for the Wells trade.  Enjoy BJ fans, you wil luvvvvvv him.

I can’t wait to see the rest of the plan.  Taking on $80 million-plus of dead weight and giving up Mike Napoli and the revenge plan is David Pauley.

Yep, Acme Co. “Revenge Plan”.  Purchased by Wiley Coyote.

Well, that and still being a better team than Toronto over the past year and a half despite making the worst trade in baseball history.

Nice.  He will upgrade to a 5 ERA while you guys continue to not make the playoffs every year.

I can think of 300 million reasons why you shouldn’t be bashing any signings right now.

I remember when he came up with the Sox in 06. He’s a super groundballer type.. if you put him on a team with a great defense like that one, I think he could get you a bunch of wins.

 Hard to think possible. Seattle probably got the fluke half season out of this guy. he was brutal his entire MiLB career and every other season. Hard to believe another change of scenery will bring back that half season of magic over nearly 10 seasons of combined mlb/milb futility.

 Check out his history with the Sox. Entire MiLB history. he was not good.

Why would the Jays ever make that mistake?

 When are the Jays not a “rebuilding team”?
