It'd make for a great story :-/


You never know. I would hope they he would atleast consider it.

While Ryan and Burnett for the most part are "unproven" (Burnett has had more experience but the injuries linger, Ryan does not have a lot of experience closing), they were still the cream of the crop and had probably the most potential on the market. If these signings do nothing else, they showed the fans of Toronto that the organization is committed to winning. I think the Bluejays next yr will have a season similar to what the Orioles had last season, but with a bit more success.

The Orioles had a horrible season last year, they finished worse than the Jays.. :-P

I'm expecting the Jays to get 85-90 wins next year (which clearly wouldn't be enough to win anything, so I'm hoping I'm wrong).

The Jays payroll for 2006 is $75 M which is below the league average and less than they spent in 2001 and 2002.


Surely that's not true? I can't believe there's 13 teams spending more than that.


Average does not equal median. 3 or 4 big spenders likely drag the average up.
Bah, humbug.

What I meant was something similar to what the O's did in the first half (I also added above - with a bit more success). I believe they were still in it before the break.

I was going to say the same thing. Warren Buffet and I have an average net worth in the billions.

According to what I could find there was actually 13 teams spending 75M +.

Fan 590 basically reported that this was a done deal a couple of hours ago, but I haven't heard or seen any confirmation about this since..

Probably DH and then trade either Hinske, Hillenbrand, or Koskie.
