One of baseball's most dangerous lineups and a resurgent (and seemingly ageless) Mark Buehrle have powered the Toronto Blue Jays into the thick of the American League playoff race, with the team setting its sights on clinching its first AL East crown since 1993.
But for all of the team's early-season success, there's work to be done between now and the non-waiver trade deadline on July 31. Bolstering the starting rotation and the bullpen and investigating potential upgrades at second base and/or third base figure to be the major areas general manager Alex Anthopoulos focuses on as the trade deadline draws near.
But the price of doing business is steep. Toronto tried to work out a deal for Chicago's Jason Hammel and Jeff Samardzija, according to Sportsnet's Shi Davidi, but Chicago's asking price of Drew Hutchison, Marcus Stroman and either Daniel Norris, Dalton Pompey or Aaron Sanchez was too rich for the club's liking.
Yet that doesn't mean that the club's going to stop trying to improve.
