    The top 10 are protected, we would get their next pick.

    Pick is protected. They'd surrender their 2nd rounder.

    We don't get their pick. They forfeit it and we get a pick in the compensatory round.

    My phone just said the Jays are unwilling to give Jose a multi-year deal.

    Since his ST rant....

    - Got punched in the face and became a meme for life.
    - Had two separate stints on the DL.
    - Had his worst offensive and defensive seasons since his breakout.
    - Can't find a team willing to sign him as a free agent.

    Dude's body is is going to look like 2016 Sandoval's with all the humble pie he's been eating.

    They're just rubbing it in at this point. You'd think if you're going to blow the pick that you might as well get as many years as possible for it?

    How the mighty have fallen.

    I don't see any single fit for Bautista anywhere but here. It's between us and the O's, and the Indians basically.

    I just saw that. How the mighty have fallen. I actually would like to see him back given what's transpired so far this off season. I'm surprised they won't go two yrs if this is true. Unless they just don't think he can really play the OF anymore at a serviceable level.

    I don't think anyone thinks he can, and most likely he will decline defensively even further. It all comes down to the blue jays having jumped the gun on the morales signing. JB at 17m is way more valuable than Morales at 11m. It was just a stupid signing and is really preventing this club from improving.

    Unless he refuses to play 1B, just fuckin sign him. Rotate him and Pearce at LF/RF/1B. Shoot Justin Smoak into the ocean.

    I'd imagine he'd agree to play 1st if it gets him the money he thinks he should get. If we could get him back for a couple years that rotation makes sense. Use a shift system to make up for his lack of range in LF/RF.

    Something is going on that we're not being made aware of. They won't give up the pick to sign him for one year, and they're apparently not willing to go multiple years. This is still a guy that projects at 2-3 wins, so something like 3/45 to retain a franchise icon seems fair. I'm thinking that he's either not keen on becoming a full-time 1B, or Mark Shapiro just doesn't like him. Possibly both.

    Shapiro is a tough ass Jew playing hardball. Every penny counts. I love it. I predict he comes back for 2/$32.

    I'm trying to think of someone who has lost as much potential earnings as Bautista, based off of timing.

    If he becomes a free agent with two season of breakout performance instead of one, he probably makes a lot more than 5/$65 million.
    If he becomes a free agent immediately after the bat flip season, instead of a year later, he probably has no trouble getting a big multi-year deal.

    One year of free agent timing on either side of his peak years is going to cost him a lot of money.

    That said, with the Booster Juice money rolling in, he's probably still doing okay.
