the Rangers knew they bid $51.7 million.
I guess we wont know what the Jays bid, but obviously they know what they bid, right?
couldn't the Jays and Rangers have (secret) talks and inform one another what they bid? then you could have leaks, because leaks happen. word could have came out days ago.

But the suspense!

I did a simple search for "Jays". that was one of the results that came up. I didn't even check the actual account, just copy/pasted the tweet itself. I assumed it was thee Bud Selig and that was the official announcement.
it's not a verified account.
I also see that tweet is now gone, and there's a correction that the Rangers won from that account.

My favorite responses so far:

This is a huge loss for the Blue Jays who will now likely finish 4th in the division instead of 4th.


Wonder how CJ Wilson feels now that the Rangers have paid more for the rights to negotiate with Darvish than they offered him for 4 years.

That hits the nail right on the head.

He wouldn't have been any better off pitching in the HomerDome2.

damn Yu. I curse Yu in Texas. Yu will fail there.

forget the Rangers for a minute.
the Jays were hoping to win the rights and sign this potentially great pitcher. so what do the Jays do now? they still need pitching. can they now go out and make a trade for someone? maybe they get more involved for Gio Gonzalez? what?

I would think he had a better chance in Toronto than in Texas.
