So here's the one that will have twitterers complaining that the Jays are too cheap when it doesn't come off:
Will say this #Bluejays loved Reyes but wouldn't do more 5 yrs Well, it's 5-yr pact after '12 & Tor currently trying to move Yunel Escobar— Joel Sherman (@Joelsherman1) July 25, 2012
He's owed $96 million from 2013-2017, including a buy out of a $22 million option for 2018.
I can't see it happening, the Marlins would have to send a lot of money our way. We just got rid of a contract like that. He is a pretty good player, not having the greatest of seasons:
|2012 - Jose Reyes||96||389||48||106||19||6||6||26||40||39||21||5||.272||.339||.398|
What do you say? Got a $100 million burning a hole in your pocket?
