Well, I don't think there needs to be any apology. You said there was no chance he came to Toronto. He was considering it, but the Padres still got him.


no really now that JP has denied the 5yr 55mil deal

None of us guranteed that the Jays would sign Giles, I have no idea where you came up with that. If you want further proof that the Jays had a decent shot at Giles, during the questioning period that Ricciardi denied ever giving a 55 million offer, Ricciardi also said the chances of getting him were about "50-50." And that was yesterday, the day Brian Giles was signed.

but maybe it is just me, I find it hard to get excited about a 30 year old reliever with a career 3.54 ERA and a career 1.32 WHIP .. :-o


In 2006
Ryan will get more saves than Hoffman (or whoever fills in for him after he decides to sign with a better team) and the Jays will win more games than the San Diego team. :-]

Chew on that monkey. B-)


lmao .. :-)

Didn't you lose a similar 'closer' bet to me last year?
And now your back for more?


Nice how you address the closer comment but you are accepting that the Jays will win more games than the Padres. :-D


so are you still excited?
You overpaid a career 3.3 ERA reliever to be your closer, and lost out on Giles.
And I hate to burst your bubble, but no way in hell Burnett goes to Canada :-)


and for the record ...

The Padres would kick the chit out of the Blue Jays, day, night, afternoon, coming, going, you name it ... "Kick the chit"!!!

Maybe we should add a little funds to this feud ...
say 5.00 per game.
The difference between their 2006 regular season records? :-?


Seems to me a little scrub closer by the name of Hoffman had an ERA of 3.64 in his first 290 IP over his first 4 years.

If the Pads played the Jays every game or the Jays played in the Pads' division then they would make the playoffs every year. Now can the Jays have a better record playing in a division that will win 100 more games than the Pads' division and spend $150 million more on players? Probably. You giving me odds?

Its 5.00 a game. :-)
It sounds to me like you are making excuses already, so
if it is too rich for you we can go a nickel, dime or a quarter. ;-)

he will be signing very soon.
I say withing the next 3-4 days.
St Louis, has not made an official offer yet as far as I know, and they are balking at giving him 5 years.

It looks like I may be right:
STLPD wrote:The Cardinals officially have placed themselves in contention for free-agent pitcher A.J. Burnett by breaking precedent with a four-year offer worth almost $10 million per season, sources confirmed Thursday night.

Burnett, the centerpiece of the Cardinals' offseason planning so far, is considered the most attractive talent within a relatively thin free-agent pool. The Arkansas native is expected to decide among several offers before Major League Baseball's winter meetings convene Monday in Dallas.

Maybe not...

ESPN's Peter Gammons says A.J. Burnett will likely go to the Blue Jays for five years and $55 million.
Reportedly, Burnett's agent wants to talk with the Cardinals one more time. However, the deal with Toronto could be agreed to within the next honor. It sounds as though the Cardinals just won't guarantee him the fifth year. Dec. 5 - 5:56 pm et

If St. Louis ups their offer to 5 years and 50 million (guranteed), I believe Burnett will take it. We'll see what happens..
