Stuff: Johnson, Whiteside, Minors

Hi everybody.

Barry Davis sat down with Josh Johnson recently.  Nice little 20-minute interview.  He seems pretty happy to be in the Jays' organization, so that's always nice. Also at sportsnet, Brett Lawrie is apparently jacked up for the season.

The Rangers have claimed Eli Whiteside off waivers from the Jays.  I'm not entirely sure when or why the Jays DFA'ed Whiteside, so this waiver claim definitely took me by surprise.  Sounds like JP Arencibia still isn't going to get traded.

The Jays have signed a few guys to some minor-league deals with invites to spring training.  Claudio Vargas is probably the most well-known of the bunch, and they'll probably only really show up if there are any injuries or performance fucks or whatever, so we'll just skip this one.

Finally, Bluebird Banter looks at the roster, as it shapes up today, and considers what needs to be done with the rest of the offseason.  For those of you wondering: no, the entire article isn't just the word "bullpen" in big bolded caps.
