Farewell to the worst nickname ever

Apparently the Blue Jays have acquired Jose Bautista from us for a player to be named later. I don't know a whole lot about it, but it seems like the organization must be pretty frustrated with him. He is a fairly useful utility player, despite his disappointing tenure as a Pirate, and we finally have the players in place to use him as such. Apparently, Neal Huntington disagrees.

Updated to add idle speculation:
With the day for call-ups approaching, is it possible this move was made to clear a roster spot? The answer is: I don't know. But it's something to think about.
