BLUE JAYS’ J.A. HAPP: WHO IS THIS GUY?
THE TORONTO BLUE JAYS TOOK A CHANCE ON J.A. HAPP THIS OFFSEASON. IT IS PAYING OFF AS HE IS AMONG THE BEST PITCHERS IN THE AMERICAN LEAGUE.
Think back to what went through your head this past offseason. The Toronto Blue Jays let David Price walk without so much as a Thank You card. Fans were worried about how the club would contend after losing such a force in the rotation. The answer was J.A. Happ. Signed for 3 yrs and $36M, the chorus of “Rogers is Cheap” started to ring once again. Happ is making $10M in 2016 and $13M in the next two. And, the way he is going, Toronto brass is looking pretty smart.
