No way! Happ will be 36 this fall and is having a good season on a mediocre team. We need to sell high with him, mainly because many of our other impending free agents won't bring much of a return due to injuries or bad seasons.
Mariners and Yankees reportedly interested, obviously prefer he not go to New York, but if they put in the best offer the Jays need to take it.

The Toronto Blue Jays (34-39) come to Angel Stadium for a four-game stint against the Los Angeles Angels (39-35).

The Angels, with thirteen players on the DL,  are 10.0GBL Houston Astros in the A.L.West, and 7 GB the second WC spot.

The Angels despite the injuries still have a formidable power hitter in Mike Trout.  Trout leads the league in virtually every category particularly in OPS , runs (60),  OBP (.458), and  WAR (6.3).
Los Angeles' other sensation is young  prospect  Shohei Ohtani.  Strike him off the lineup for now and on the DL with a grade 2 collateral elbow ligament strain.

The  Blue Jays are coming off a split of their most recent interleague homestand set versus the Braves. 
Jays starter Marcus Stroman is set to return after being on the DL since May 11 with shoulder fatigue.

LET'S GO BLUE JAYS!

Because holding on to an aging pitcher instead of picking up assets to help build the team's future is the best way to avoid being a .500 team.

Why not do both? Trade Happ now and talk to him about re-signing in the off-season. Win win.

Blue Jays beat the Angels 4-1 Saturday on Steve Pearce's three-run homer in the ninth.  Teoscar Hernandez hit a solo shot earlier in the game.

Jays starter Marcus Stroman pitched for a solid five innings allowing six hits.  It was Stroman's first game since coming off the DL with shoulder problems.  He had been absent on the mound since May 11.

Reliever Seunghwan Oh got the win and Tepera the save.

The Jays placed starting pitcher Jaime Garcia on the DL with shoulder inflammation.
Starter Aaron Sanchez also placed on the DL due to index finger bruise.

The Jays Osuna suspended 75 games by MLB.  The suspension comes without pay.


http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/23878504/roberto-osuna-toronto-blue-jays-suspended-75-games-mlb


Osuna's lawyer stated that he (Osuna) will plead not guilty at his next court date slated for July 9th.

Blue Jays defeat the Angels 7-6 Sunday afternoon to earn a split of this four-game series. Thanks to Kendrys Morales whose 10th inning pinch- home run won it for the Jays.  Other home run contributions earlier came from Granderson, Travis, & Diaz.

Jays starter Sam Gaviglio allowed  three runs in a little over five innings with some sloppy defensive work on the part of his teammates.
Tyler Clippard finished out for the save.

The Blue Jays venture to Minute Miad Park foe a three-game series against the Houston Astros.

The Astros not only lleqd the A.L. West but also sport the A.L.'s leader in batting in Jose Altuve (.345 BA).

The Blue Jays coming off a split of their series against the Angels will try to continue on their modest two-game winning streak.  Look for prospect Ryan Borucki to possibly take the place of injured starting pitcher Aaron Sanchez.

LET'S GO BLJE JAYS!

Time to trade Jay before he becomes Hapless and Estrada, trade Donaldson and Martin and T.T. (the breakable shortstop), lets face it, if we can get some good returns and draft picks for these guys at this point then lets pull the trigger.
Keep the Smoak Monster, Pillar, Travis, Stroman, Sanman,  Sam G, and give Osuna another chance, he is really just a kid (that needs some serious counciling) and oh get rid of that bum Garcia. I dislike him worse than Loup.

I really don't get the weird repping for Osuna.

Blue Jays beat the Astros 6-3 last night on home runs by Granderson (2) and Grichuk.  Grichuk's two-run ninth inning homer vaulted the Jays lead on the scoreboard. 

Jays starter J.A. Happ got the win.

Not to mention Grichuk's fantastic catch in right-field that preserved the win for the Jays.  Awesome Randall!

Not only that, but do any of us really know any facts in this case? I'm not sure why anyone can definitively say he deserves another chance when they don't even know what happened.

As for the prospect of trading Tulo and/or Martin...it's not possible. Tulo has a ton of $ left on his contract (until 2021!!) and is in worse shape than Mick Foley. Martin is 35 and has another 20 million left. They are dead, dead weights.
