Russell Martin And Big Contracts To Older Catchers

Details By Tony Blengino

Published: Nov 20, 2014, 10:00 am EST

Just like winter, hot stove season appears to be arriving early this year. Somewhat lost in all of the hubbub regarding Giancarlo Stanton‘s record-breaking deal is Russell Martin‘s five-year, $82 million contract with the Toronto Blue Jays. Though it is heavily backloaded, this still ranks as the third-largest catching contract currently on any club’s books […]

On The Blue Jays And Going For It In The AL East

Details By Mike Petriello

Published: Nov 20, 2014, 9:00 am EST

I’m sure I’ve said this before, but one of my favorite tools on our site would have to be the Depth Charts, which combine Steamer projections and human-curated depth charts to output expected WAR totals. What I’ve done today — last night, really, which I’m clarifying only in the event of some huge late-night signing that […]

Blue Jays Sign Russell Martin for 5/$82.5M

Details By Dave Cameron

Published: Nov 17, 2014, 12:39 pm EST

About an hour after I named Russell Martin one of the bargains of this free agent crop, the Blue Jays removed him from the pile, signing him to a five year, $82.5 million contract, according to Ken Rosenthal. This was slightly higher than the 5/$75M I’d guessed in my predictions, and quite a bit higher […]

Blue Jays and Tigers Make Minor Trade That Might Matter

Details By Dave Cameron

Published: Nov 13, 2014, 12:15 am EST

If you like big trades with flashy names, this isn’t the post for you, because this one is dedicated to the Tigers swapping second base prospect Devon Travis to the Blue Jays for center field kinda prospect Anthony Gose. Neither Travis nor Gose looks likely to turn into any kind of star, but this trade […]

Details By Jeff Sullivan

Published: Nov 3, 2014, 9:00 am EST

The baseball offseason arrived all of a sudden. As the Giants were parading around the streets of San Francisco, I was on my computer writing about the Cubs ditching Rick Renteria to hire Joe Maddon.

Blue Jays Claim Justin Smoak

Details By Dave Cameron

Published: Oct 28, 2014, 3:05 pm EDT

The Blue Jays have have a strong recent track record of taking failed hitters and turning them into franchise cornerstones. In 2008, they traded minor league catcher Robinzon Diaz to Pittsburgh for Jose Bautista, then watched him turn into Joey Bats.

The Fascinating Free Agency of Melky Cabrera

Details By Mike Petriello

Published: Sep 10, 2014, 10:00 am EDT

Melky Cabrera‘s season ended on Friday with a broken finger. Normally, “team headed for 22nd straight year out of the playoffs loses second-best outfielder for the final three weeks” isn’t much of a story, but this situation is a little different. Cabrera is about to be a free agent in what looks to be a terrible […]
