Let's see, the Jays get you, help you through surgery and rehab and you leave without even pitching a game for them.
May be you should pay back the Blue Jays for everything they did for you, ya bum. Good riddance and good luck to the Cubs with this guy.

Toronto got screwed? They traded for an injured player. Then, they didnt resign him. How did they get "screwed"? And, why should he pay them back for his surgery and such? I am sure his insurance covered it.

Its not that bad, its only a minor league deal and its not high dollar...low risk-high reward. And we need lefty's.

The Jeff Kent thing is dumb, but to me doesn't rival the really stupid classic baseball injuries. Someone on the Yankees threw his back out once in spring training when he bodyslammed a teammate while they were horsing around in the lockerroom.
