Blue Jays: Even for half a season, the David Price trade was worth it

When I think back to July of 2015, it was one of the more surreal periods of my life as a sports fan. I’d long dreamed that the Blue Jays would make a real push to win a World Series again, something I hadn’t seen them do since the early 90’s, and suddenly Alex Anthopoulos was pushing his chips to the centre of the table.

First came Troy Tulowitzki from the Colorado Rockies in a move that shored up the shortstop position, and also helped the bullpen with the addition of LaTroy Hawkins. They also picked up Mark Lowe from the Mariners to boost the bullpen, and Ben Revere from the Phillies to give the lineup a new leadoff hitter.
