Wow. $8M a year for two years. What do you think he would have gotten w/o the suspension? This is a tremendous signing by the Jays.
...no extra consequences...
So, no extra consequences for the attempt to mislead investigators with the fake story about where he got the stuff?
I suppose 2b if you want to get really greedy.
What is Toronto's lineup going to look like next year?
The Blue Jays have agreed to sign Melky Cabrera to a two-year, $16MM contract
you know, i really think the jays are going to be a train wreck next season.
you know, i really think the jays are going to be a train wreck next season. this type of spending spree rarely works out.
I remember the Toronto fans strutting all about when Troy Glaus and B.J. Ryan got their big deals.
That worked out well.
Being a Jays fan has been frustrating but you know one of these years things will go right and we'll see the playoffs again.
(Trivia note: the Glaus trade is still alive in Toronto.
Trivia note: the Glaus trade is still alive in Toronto. He was acquired, with Sergio Santos, for Orlando Hudson and Miguel Batista. Santos drifted out of the organization, but they traded Glaus to the Cards for Scott Rolen. Then they traded Rolen to the Reds for Encarnacion, Josh Roenicke, and Zach Stewart. Encarnacion's still with the team, Roenicke isn't, and Stewart was part of the trade that brought Colby Rasmus and some evanescent spare parts back.
Mets for Robin Ventura, who was himself later traded to the Dodgers for Wilson Betemit
I do wonder if there is a way to reach back to the Gillick years here (1994 or earlier)?
Always fun following trades from start to finish. Right now my favorite is following Dustin McGowan if you get creative.
McGowan was drafted by the Jays in the 1st round of 2000's draft as a compensation pick for losing Graeme Lloyd. Lloyd was acquired in the Roger Clemens trade, and Clemens was signed as a free agent in 1997 by GM Gord Ash. Thus one legacy (sorta) of the Ash era is still kicking and if McGowan can make a comeback this year then Clemens being signed could be bringing returns still as he gets voted on for the HOF.
The Jays selected Al Woods in the expansion draft in 1977. They then traded him for Cliff Johnson in 82. When Johnson signed with the Rangers, the Jays then received Tom Henke as compensation. When Henke signed with the Rangers in 92, they selected Shannon Stewart with the compensation pick they received. Stewart was eventually traded for Bobby Keitly who then was traded for Ted Lilly. When Lilly signed with the Cubs, they used their compensation pick on Trystan Magnuson. The then traded Magnuson for current Jay Rajai Davis.
