your kidding right? I don't give a shit how many players are going the other way, 3 are certainly unproven and you can even make a case that 4 are. Lawrie is still potential but he has only shown spurts of elite talent.
The only concern I have is that Nolan turns into something the Jays need.
Baseball nerds aside, I see this is a pretty big mistake on the Jays part. I thought the issue was term, not money. So I'm surprised to see he went for a paltry three years. Could it have something to do with the field, perhaps? How nice would it have been to have him in the lineup for the next 2+ years though. Saunders is a decent pick-up that they could've used to platoon, or as a 4th OFer.
I dont really get all the Saunders love. Even when he's been healthy, which is almost never, he's pretty average. On a good team, he's more like a 4th OF. To be honest, when they traded for him, that's what I thought they were expecting him to be....but all of a sudden he's been trotted out there like he's replacing Melky.
