Homecoming Present

leave a comment »

You heard it here errr…second. Baseball Digest Daily is reporting before anybody that the Jays have called a press conference that can only be to announce they have finally agreed with Alex Rios on a long-term extension.

Can’t wait to hear those financial details – 6/65 or so, apparently. With no opt-out. I’m drooling. Considering he was going to get 7-8 million for the next couple years in arbitration anyway, we get four years of a budding superstar’s prime (and he’s pretty good now anyway) for 10 million bucks and change?! J.P. must have used whatever unholy blackmailing scheme he did on Halladay to get Rios to sign not just for what is going to be cheap then. but is already a good deal now.

P.S. All you Neyer-reading types gracing this blog with your presence (Simple!? *swoon*), check out the Drunk Jays Fans guide to home openers before scurrying back to deeper and safer waters.
