    I'd take the under on Sanchez and Happ. I have a feeling Morales will completely shit the bed opening the door for Rowdy

    With our current 1B situation, he doesn't even have to shit the bed to give Tellez a shot, unless Smoak somehow breaks out.

    Doors already wide open for Rowdy if the Jays go into 2017 with Smoak as their first baseman.

    Another year where an extra $15-20M in budget could make us the AL favourites.

    My whole life I've heard the "If we're contending, Rogers will give us the money to get us over the top" mantra. Is this not exactly that scenario? And last year as well?

    You don't know what our payroll will be. Most of the big ticket free agents and trade targets are still available.

    Colabello is on that graphic. I thought the Jays let him go from the system?

    No, he's on the 40 man... has an option left, also.

    What would we do with $15-20 M that would practically guarantee us 2-3 WAR?

    Well there are no guarantees in life but I'm pretty sure Shatkins could figure it out. More money = better chance to win, please don't try to debate this.

    How come there is such a great variance between Steamer predictions and Zips

    Zips has Sanchez at 4.5 but Steamer only 3. Same with Estrada too,

    Pretty much every bluejays Zips is higher.

    38 WAR in total, i.e 86 wins. Pearce, Travis, Barney, Sanchez are particularly low IMO.

    Pitching is usually going to be a bit lower because of injury risk.

    I was kind of under the impression adding up a teams total projected WAR to predict outcome of season was not a great idea.
