    My biggest reason for wanting Bautista coming back is the fact that I have his jersey and I don't feel like buying another one. If he resigns I feel the rest of the career will be spent as a Bluejay

    If thats all it would take I'd sign both in a heartbeat. Bautista at 17 Million for a 3 Win player is a steal. Have him and Pearce share time at 1B/LF and send Smoak away. Lineup with both is fantastic

    Bautista

    Pearce

    But yeah, seeing him in RF again would be painful.

    That's fine. Just means the historical value goes up. That's why I rock my Jean Segura Brewers Shirsey all the time!

    If the payroll is going to be around 160m, then they can't afford Fowler and Bautista, unless one or both take far less than they are expected to get. Might be one or the other.

    There's no reason why the bluejays can't afford to sign both straight up, but Bautista loves Toronto. The jays could offer Bautista 17 per year for 2 years and pay 7 mil per for 2 years and pay the 20 mil deferred in three equal payments in years 3 4 and 5. They could get creative because I think Bautista wants back and as long as he's a free agent in 2 years and gets all his money being paid over 5 years it isn't that big of a deal. Last time I checked inflation was pretty low even with trumps pro growth policies.

    They need that exact lineup to have a shot against Boston. I think it will be JB or Fowler, not both though, then they'll add a project reliever to save money.

    I think Davidi mentioned it, but might be speculation on his part.

    I'd like to see him spend it out as a bluejay.

    The disrespect for Jose is pretty hilarious. The guy is one year removed from a 40HR, .250/.377/.536 season. Walk rates are still through the roof.

    He had some injuries last year and still put up a very, very good offensive year. Shatkins will clearly bring him back as a primary DH if an offer is made.

    Yes, bringing back one of the greatest players in franchise history on a short-term deal when he is still very capable of putting up excellent numbers is absolutely nauseating. The hive is at it again.
