maybe if they actually tried to improve their roster like most other teams they'd do alright.

Team acts like a small market minnow.

Remember when the Jays traded for Dickey and gave up Noah Syndergaard ... that might come back to bite them in the ass.

We'd be lucky to have RA play two more seasons, let alone win two Cy Youngs.

SANTANA CLOSE TO ONE-YEAR DEAL, POSSIBLY WITH JAYS

Quote:
Free agent starter Ervin Santana may be poised to finally find a home for 2014.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the 32-year-old will sign a one-year deal, likely in the next two days with one of a trio of suitors, with the Toronto Blue Jays believed to be heavily involved.

Heyman reports that the Blue Jays and Orioles are the "clear favourites" to land the right-hander, who is believed to be seeking a one-year pact in the neighbourhood of the $14 million qualifying offer he rejected from the Kansas City Royals earlier this off-season.

Another team - believed to be the Colorado Rockies - is also in the mix.

Santana waited the entire off-season in hopes of landing a multi-year deal but when one failed to emerge, he altered his stance. Earlier this week he changed representation and is believed to now be seeking a one-year deal. He is also reported to prefer signing with a "top hitting team".

The Dominican hurler's value has been hampered by rejecting said qualifying offer. As a result of that decision, the team that signs Santana will have to offer draft pick compensation to the Royals.

For most teams, that pick would be a first-rounder in this June's MLB Draft. However, both the Blue Jays and Orioles would avoid said fate.

The Blue Jays have two first round picks, but both are protected at ninth and 11th overall, respectively. Should the Jays sign Santana, the cost would be the forfeiture of their 50th overall pick.

Baltimore, having already surrendered their 17th overall selection after signing Ubaldo Jimenez and their 55th overall pick by signing Nelson Cruz, would surrender the 91st overall pick were they to sign Santana.

Santana posted a 9-10 record and logged 211 innings with the Royals last season and posted the lowest earned-run average (3.24) and second lowest WHIP (1.142) of his nine-year MLB career.

He has posted a 105-90 career record averaging 7.1 strikeouts-per-nine innings in 268 total games with the Royals and Los Angeles Angels.

Finally. Not sure if he's the answer but it's good to see AA getting off his ass and making a change.

I like one-year deals for starters, limits the amount they can screw you

Jays have been pretty quiet this offseason considering if this roster doesn't work this year, they have to rebuild. Hopefully Santana pitches well at the Rogers Centre

EDIT: Career stats



Pretty average stats overall but this team needs another starter, can't let the Orioles pick up everyone too
