Blue Jays/Astros Trade

Recently the Blue Jays and Astros completed a whopping 10 player trade to allow the Blue Jays to compete in 2012 and give up some long term options (A Ball Players) to the HOU Farm System. I'd just like to get everyone's opinion on the trade, good and bad:

HOU Receives:

RHP Francisco Cordero

OF Ben Francisco

RHP Joe Musgrove

RHP Asher Wojciechowski

LHP David Rollins

C Carlos Perez

1 PTBNL

TOR Receives:

RHP Billy Lyon

RHP David Carpenter

RHP J.A. Happ

All in all I like the haul that Lunhow got for Houston. I think that Musgrove will be a solid MOR starter and Asher could end up a valued bullpen piece. Perez has always intrigued me as a player, and I know TOR has a lot of catchers waiting in stock behind the young Arenciba (d'Arnaud, Perez, Gomez, Nessy, Jimenez) so unloading Perez doesn't seem overly difficult.

Discuss, interested to see everyone's opinions on the deal.
