X-Factor: Toronto Blue Jays

Everyone knows the key players on the Toronto Blue Jays: Reyes, Bautista, Encarnacion, Dickey, Cabrera, and so on and so forth.

Seems the Phillies grew tired of Michael Schwimer schtick and decided to part ways with him yesterday by shipping him north of the border to America's hat (aka- Canada).  He has annoyed/angered the organization over the past two seasons with tweets about not being called up from the minors when he believed was the right time and his grievance against them for shipping him back...
