Jon Heyman and Kevin Cash have given the Blue Jays a gift. Or at least they’ve given Blue Jays fans a gift.
Or, at the very least, they’ve given me a gift.
Normally I would roll my eyes over Heyman tweeting about Jose Bautista contract stuff, because… obviously. Especially when it’s a vague suggestion, as today’s Heyman tweet on the subject was, like “While i believe Bautista would take less than $150M-plus, 5-year ask, he wouldn’t take less than $100M.” But at least it’s keeping me from more worrying words about the Jays’ lineup and the continued struggles of a few too many guys in it (except, y’know, these words). (And yeah, I think most people in the know-ish will tell you that $100-million is a big number for Bautista).
And normally, with Aaron Sanchez on the hill, I’d also probably be writing worrying words about a lineup stacked with lefties, which are once again becoming a concern for him. Lefties now have hit .250/.344/.464 them as a group, which isn’t quite horrific yet, but seems to get worse after each game, and mirrors the terrible time he had with them last year, too.
