But, as he says:

I don't think I'd want to go beyond 5 years with Pablo, (not that I am against going more than five for the right guy)  he is only 28,  but his weight would be a concern for me. I think he is going to be overpaid, I really wouldn't want the Blue Jays to be the ones overpaying. Over the past four years, Pablo has put up WARs of 5.5, 2.6, 2.3 and 3.0. Personally, if he was asking for more than $15 million a year for 4 years, I'd be out.

Since he's been on World Series winning teams, he's been sold as a 'leader' and 'team chemistry' guy. We already bought once of those this month, I don't really need another.
