What do you think the chances are of him making their roster?

Just to make sure I have this right; they now gets his rights and he goes to spring training with the Blue Jays. He has to make their 25 man major league roster and stay there all season. If at any time he is off their 25 man roster for that first season (barring injury, I assume), then he reverts to the Sox?

Yes, I believe that is true except that he will be offered back to the Sox and they can take him back for $25,000 or work out some other type of compensation. In looking at Baseball America, it said our roster was at 40. I only count 39.

i'd say the fact that they took two other players in the rule five makes it more likely we'll get him back. however, the problem as i was saying in one of the other threads is that majewski is different from most rule 5 picks in that he's almost ready for the majors now after a full near dominant season of AA.

He was a short-to-middle reliever in AA. He is not close to MLB ready.

well that's the role he'd fill in the majors if he kept them. he'd remain at the back of their pen.

The second half of my statement was not contingent upon the first half. He is nowhere near a major league ready player at this point.

then what's your reason for thinking he's nowhere near ready while some players (wells, wright, etc) are called up to the majors without even a full season. i'm not saying he's ready right now but i think he's closer than most rule 5 picks.

I have a feeling we won't get Majewski back this time. The Blue Jays are a well run organization and most likely have a plan for him.

If this is the same guy who came from the Dodgers in the James Baldwin deal then the Sox got NOTHING of value from it did they?

Masanoka (gone), Majewski (gone), and the WRONG Beane.

Great move eh?

Lip, they traded him to LA for Osuna. Traded for him in the Baldwin deal.

At least we didn't trade any cash!

Hey I remember something else about that deal! Baldwin sucks! Why would we get anything for a player who sucks?

Can we change Lip's title from WSI Personality to WSI Irritant?

I really don't see the Jays putting him on the 25 man roster,unless they are going to use him very sparingly,this a guy drafted out of high school that has never been with any organization long enough to develop consistency,maybe they see something I don't.
