    I cant wait for the offseason to start. Holy crap, this stretch is awful, but I never realized how awful.

    I wonder if someone in Rogers had a discussion with Shapiro along the lines of we need to keep the TV ratings coming. I mean 1 million a night numbers for 162 nights plus playoffs. Regardless of the FMV of rights, no one is going to want to go back to 300-400K days. Pressure is coming,

    If extra salary is gonna be available, do you guys think it would be worth taking on some potentially bad money like James Shields and David Robertson if it meant getting Adam Eaton for a lesser package. Melky could be another guy they would would want to unload.

    I suspect they'd probably eat some of Robertson's salary rather than lessen a return (which wouldn't make sense for where they are).

    Anyone remember when Curtis Granderson pushed Brett Gardner to LF?

    It would be nice to get some sort of sense of what Rogers is willing to spend on payroll. The discussion around what the club should do will change in many people's eyes if projected payroll is around 140, 150, 160 or 170. I hope the Blue Jays raise payroll parameters, but I'm not convinced they will.

    It seems pretty likely that they will. They're gonna really want to capitalize on the renewed fan interest. I would expect probably 160M, but it would be nice if that was a little flexible for the right fits.

    I'm not certain that Shapiro and Atkins would even spend 160 if they had it.

    Well he said not top 5 but he said they should be in the next 5 (6-10). Based on 2016 that would put them between 147 million and 167 million.

    Atkins saying the club hasn't received the payroll number yet scares me. You would think they should now by now given FA is getting close.

    They could, based on internal risk tolerant extensions. I'm thinking extensions to the likes of JD, Stroman, Sanchez, and Osuna; combined with RFA signings.

    I think they will. The budget will be requested by Shapiro after he picks the best off season plan proposed to him by Atkins and staff. Atkins has stated they expect a higher payroll so I'm sure the proposals will all reflect that and I really believe Rogers will be pretty amenable to whatever they ask for. I have a feeling Shapiro can be pretty impressive in a boardroom and I'm sure their ask will be properly backed up by the numbers. I'm damn glad we have this FO in place.

    I'm not against any of those extensions, but they would have a minimal impact on the 2017 payroll.
