The only way the Jays are getting any effective pitching is by trading Vernon anyways. I doubt the Jays want to pay him $14-15mil for 5 years or so and that's understandable.
Even with solid but not great pitchers like Gil Meche and Ted Lilly there is tons of demand for. I assume that's the type the Jays would go after for the #3 hole. I think we can forget about Zito and Schmidt.
