    Jays Sign Curtis Granderson

    1 Year deal worth $5 million for a OFer who had 2.1 fWAR last season.

    Not bad given the price is $5M, but I'm hoping he's more of a depth guy rather than the starting RF.

    Perfect!

    Timing is interesting. I have to think maybe we were in on Cutch, and then this was plan B.

    1 WAR for 5M in a spot we have precious few options. Pretty easy to see him being worth 2 WAR (has the last 3 seasons).
    Great value sign and someone who will be easy to move at the deadline if we are out considering his amazing clubhouse reputation.

    5 mil for him is less than I expected.

    Yeah, $5M is a steal, and palatable even if Grandy suddenly falls off an age cliff. He could pretty easily provide $10-15M in surplus value this season.

    He's old as dirt but has still been a pretty productive player the last few years. I like him as a platoon bat and barely any risk at 1/5 Million.

    Not a bad move....hopefully if he is a starting OF we use some money on a SP
    See the ball and let it fly, Watch the ball soaring through the sky, Higher like a comet in the night air, Defying gravity is rare, Let the ball fly, Its homerun time!!!!!

    This has been a very solid offseason. Nothing flashy, but nice low risk additions.
