In two-plus years as the general manager of the Blue Jays, Alex Anthopoulos has shown a penchant for buying low on other teams’ undervalued players. He did it with
, who delivered a 3.7 Yunel Escobar season last year. He did it with WARP , who emerged as one of baseball’s top prospects, and then batted a remarkable .293/.373/.580 in 171 plate appearances in 2011. Most recently, he did it with Brett Lawrie and Colby Rasmus last summer, though the returns on those two investments are thus far unclear. Kelly Johnson
Once viewed as a potential star center fielder, the 25-year-old Rasmus has a much greater role to play in the Jays’ future than Johnson. Rasmus was a 2.3
player—mostly thanks to a .276/.361/.498 triple-slash, because his fielding was 18.8 runs below average—in 2010, and he was expected to blossom into one of the National League’s best players. WARP Read the full article...

If Tony La Russa ran Colby Rasmus out of town, it wouldn't be the first time that the skipper's personality clashes forced his team to trade talent.
On Wednesday, the
traded St. Louis Cardinals and three relief pitchers to the Colby Rasmus for a few major-league arms ( Toronto Blue Jays , Edwin Jackson , Octavio Dotel ), three PTBNLs, and Marc Rzepczynski . The Rasmus Era, which began in 2009 with a promising rookie campaign, finally came to an end after two-plus seasons of sniping and seemingly unmet expectations. Corey Patterson
Rasmus was a 22-year-old center fielder and the team’s top prospect in 2009 when he won a spot in the starting lineup for the second game of the season. In 143 games, Rasmus batted .251/.307/.407 with 16 home runs and 72 runs scored. That was only good enough for a .248 True Average, but his strong defense in center (4.3
) earned Rasmus 1.7 FRAA for the season. There might have been some growing pains along the way—there was one game against the Royals where Rasmus moved slowly in the outfield, allowing the runner to stretch a single into a double, that drew some comments from management—but Rasmus looked like a future building block for St. Louis following his rookie campaign. WARP
The TA team runs down today's whirlwind of trades between the Cardinals, White Sox, and Blue Jays.

B.J. Upton and Colby Rasmus had sky-high ceilings as prospects, but their up-and-down performances in the majors has led them to the trading block.
The July 31 trading deadline traditionally turns the spotlight on pending free agents that can shore up a contender's roster for the stretch run.
and Carlos Beltran are the belles of the quick-fix ball this year, and if they don't sound tremendously enticing, it helps explain why so much talk is focused elsewhere, on younger and more affordable players still under club control. Hiroki Kuroda and Ubaldo Jimenez fit that bill, even if their respective teams' willingness to trade them is something of a head-scratcher. More puzzling is how Hunter Pence and B.J. Upton have arrived at this juncture, particularly given the big things projected for them just a few years ago. On the other hand, maybe that explains exactly why they're here.
