    He'll end up with the same 4/80 year deal. It's the Blue Jays who look stupid, they have Morales now instead of EE.

    Sounds like he has a 3/65 guarantee (5M buyout on the 4th year). Not far off from 4/80

    At 36, it's not like he won't be able to get 12-15m, + the 5m buyout, so it will be basically the same.

    They made the offer, he rejected the offer. How does that make them stupid. They signed a player that accepted to be signed.. On this subject, i have no criticism of our management.

    He might actually come out ahead. Overall, he really didn't get seriously burned by declining the reported 4/80 offer. Do we know for sure that that offer didn't include a team option?

    I'm more excited for Pearce than if Edwin had returned tbh.

    Teams must be getting tired of getting killed on these bug deals. Pujols, Fielder, Hamilton and so many others. They are just getting killed on them. I think teams are starting to smarten up.

    His agent basically said that he was waiting, so the Blue Jays could have kept their offer. He made it seem like the blue jays withdrew their offer and moved on before waiting for EE to make his decision. So, ya, the Blue Jays end up with an 11m 0.9 war player vs 20m 3.5 war player. Their little game of trying to pressure EE into making his decision right away backfired.

    This is a pretty huge deal for a 34-year old 1B/DH.

    Wow, Paul Kinsler is most unprofessional agent out there. All he did was talk shit to the media and ends up getting his client a slightly less deal for a team that probably was his 3rd or 4th choice.
    I donít suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.
