In order to get the premier FA's, they had to dish out more money and more yrs. 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..
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).
