If they're out of it at the deadline and he doesn't have a new deal he will be traded for sure. Same with Edwin.

Didnt Toronto rescue him from a life of MLB obscurity or had he already turned his swing around before he got there?

He wasn't great in 08 and 09 when he was here. 2010 was when he got it going.

I wonder what the number is that he won't back down from. Would he be crazy to ask for like 3/70?

Its definitely 22m+ for 3 or 4 or maybe more if his agent is insane. Who knows. It's gonna be an overpay but fuck it, pay the man.

If Bautista left it would be pretty crushing for sure.

I was actually watching a DDD the other night where the chef's name was Harold Reynolds. All I could think about is how I would rather listen to him call a baseball game than the other HR.

Jays are apparently close to getting Jay Bruce in a 3 team deal with the Reds and Angels. Wut.

It'll be from Anaheim. Apparently Mike Saunders is going to the Angels and then the Angels are sending garbage to the Reds.

Bruce has to be a salary dump, right? He's due either 1/13.5 or 2/25.5. But he's definitely a buy low guy who gives the Jays another left handed bat. I assume he'd play left?

The Reds know that when there's a three team deal they're allowed to also improve, right?

Jay Bruce is probably worst than Michael Saunders even if Saunders is injured all year. I don't get it. Plus I'm assuming they now have close to no money to add pieces at the deadline or whatever.

I feel like he'll get close to 90 mil over 4 years from like Dave Stewart or some shit. My guess is the Jays re-sign Encarnacion and Bautista leaves unless Rogers specifically allocates money to the budget to re-sign him.

Looks like Michael Saunders bum knee killed the deal as he failed his medical. Too bad, Saunders could be a very good cheap player if he could stay on the field.

Apparently the deal got shut down because a Jays prospect failed a medical, not Saunders. Interesting, wonder who the prospect was.

There was a Jays prospect in that deal? I figured it was just Saunders to the Angels, and then the Angels sending prospects. Must've been a really low level guy.

Reds should just hold on to Bruce anyway and if he gets off to a hot start try to trade him before he cools down.

Gallardo may have failed his physical. Wonder if that also kills the Fowler interest.

This gives me confidence that his people actually want to work something out. You don't just release numbers like that if you have no intention on sitting down and bargaining a little bit.

He already came out today and said he gave them a number, but it's nowhere near that.

Leaking a number like that stinks of the front office making him sound greedy.

Leonys Martin and Jose Abreu are suing their old agent for the same thing, so I'm guessing yes. International draft, here we come.

It's hard to find a lot of info on it, is Jose Reyes just getting a paid suspension? Or is it a paid suspension as they gather information to formally suspend him?
