Gold Glove

Alex Anthopoulos didn’t just improve the Blue Jays offence…no no no. By bring in Russell Martin, Michael Saunders, Josh Donaldson, Dalton Pompey, and soon to be announced Devon Travis, Alex has improved the gloves in the field as well.

The loss of Brett Lawrie at the hot corner was a tough pill to swallow, but the addition of Josh Donaldson will make it easier for all of us. Josh is no slouch in the field and should be able to play more games, thus eliminating Gibby to use an assortment of misfits for long stretches.

Saunders and Pompey will drastically improve the OF defence over Melky Cabrera and Colby Rasmus. This should only make Russell Martin’s job behind the plate that much easier, knowing that a ball in the gap isn’t an automatic double.
