We knew it was coming, but Jose Bautista, Joaquin Benoit, Brett Cecil, R.A. Dickey, Edwin Encarnacion, Scott Feldman, Gavin Floyd, Dioner Navarro and Michael Saunders all became free agents today. The club has 5 days where they have exclusive rights to talk to them, after that they are free to talk to anyone.
Anyway, let’s have a little contest. Tell us which (if any) of these Blue Jays free agents re-sign with the team. The first to correctly guess which ones sign with the Jays will win a small prize (which I haven’t figured out yet, but, trust me, the term small won’t be misleading).
Personally, I’d guess that Cecil will be back. I also think that one of Bautista or Encarnacion will be back, I’ll guess Bautista. I don’t expect any of the others to be back.
So give us your best guess.
