The Jays just got more……Squirrely??
Did you know, when you type “squirrely” into Google, this is the third thing that comes up. I really thought a picture of Reed Johnson would be first, but I digress.
Everyone’s favorite Ken is reporting this morning that the Jays have reached a preliminary agreement with David Eckstein on a 1-year, $4.5 million contract.
Now I’m not going throw up links to all the Jays fans who have been bemoaning this signing for the past 48 hrs or so. Yes he’s old. Yes he’s injury prone. Yes his defense not as good as the Prime Minister of Defense. And he didn’t get signed today to a $275 million contract.
But he does get on base at a decent clip:
Jays’ Leadoff Hitters last Season: .247/.321/.407
David Eckstein last Season: .309/.356/.382
