Gettin' Real Paid

In addition to Scott Downs' gulp-inducing deal, the Jays also announced deals to avoid arbitration with Marco Scutaro (two years, but cheap!), Brian Tallett (who now only has the second-best mutton chops on the team), Gustavo Chacin (the Machine returns!), and Jason Frasor, who will get paid $1.25 million to sweep up the sunflower seeds in the bullpen.

Surely, the Jays could find some NL team to take Frasor off their hands. There's a buttload of bullpen arms right now, and Frasor could move to the more delicate league to pick and nibble and throw sliders in the dirt and still be considered an asset.

Frasor has really nice mechanics and quite a zippy fastball for one who is so small he can sleep in a drawer. The guy had a crisis of confidence or something. It's kind of painful to see.
