    Moss probably gets 1/5 or 1/6. Doubt he gets $8-10 million.

    The Rays were named as a potential landing spot for Bautista (hometown team), maybe this kills whatever chance there was of that happening.

    Rasmus and Bautista both in Rays uniforms could still be possible. Would mean that they'd have to platoon Souza & Rasmus and rotate some players around, though could still work.

    CF Kiermaier
    2B Forsythe
    3B Longoria
    DH/1B/LF Bautista
    1B/SS Miller
    LF Dickerson
    SS Duffy
    C Ramos
    RF Souza/Rasmus

    Ok not the exact setup, though that isn't that bad of a lineup. Factor in the Rays pitching as well, they could be sleepers.

    If the Rays actually signed Bautista and he returns to his 2015 level, they could have a dangerous lineup. Evan Longoria found his power stroke last season, Brad Miller could build off his strong 2016 breakout year, Duffy is very underrated, Dickerson could rebound, Kiermaier has his amazing looks, Rasmus could hit between 20-25 HR's easily, Ramos was having an All-Star year in 2016 before getting hurt, etc. I could go on. I wouldn't count out the Rays.

    I'm making a bold prediction. If the Rays sign Bautista, they win one of the wild card spots.

    I mean that lineup + Archer/Odorizzi/Smyly/Cobb would be pretty nasty, I wouldn't say it's that bold. I have no idea who the hell is returning to their bullpen but it's the Rays so I'd imagine it'll be at least average.

    Don't forget Blake Snell as well in that rotation. Plus they have a lot of depth as well - Whitley, Andreise and Ramirez.

    Plus their bullpen is pretty decent with Colome, Boxberger, Cedano etc. Rays could be dangerous.

    Thats a lot of could/ifs though. A lot of teams would be really good if they got 2015 Bautista, the Jays included. (MAKE IT HAPPEN)

    Do we have a shot at this Luis Robert kid from Cuba or does the Gurriel signing take us out of that?

    19 year old CF/OF prospect from Cuba. Scouts saying he's a top 5 Cuban prospect. Seems like a good way to spend some of our dough instead of using it on retreads.

    It would go against our MILB/INL cap... so no it won't happen, they didn't go over earlier, they won't now. They'd have signed Fernandez and him if that were the case.

    Totally would have liked to sign Rasmus for that kind of money, but there is no way he would've come back here after the way he was treated at the end of 2014.

    They can't sign anybody over $300,000 until July 2nd anyway. I'm really hoping this signing period or next we go full San Diego with an International haul.

    I'm guessing if we offered him $8 Million, today he's in Regina at a Pats game with Zeke.
