The Player’s Association (don’t call us a union) has released a list of 149 players who became free agents as of this morning.

There are four Jays on the list: Brett Anderson, Darwin Barney, Miguel Montero and Michael Saunders. Of the four, I’d imagine they would be interested in keeping Anderson, if the dollars worked out.

There will be more free agents depending on decisions on options. As we know Jose Bautista’s option won’t be picked up so he’ll be a free agent too.

Take a look at the list, see if there are any names you’d like the Jays to go after. I’m wondering how much it would take to sign Arrieta.
