As widely reported yesterday; it’s now official, Jose Bautista stays a Jay.
Mixed opinion on Facebook, but I think, clearly, he was the best of what was left — and they needed a man in Right. (if you catch my drift)
It’s a 1 year deal (with an option for a 2nd) and word has it that Joey Bats did indeed top his initial qualifying offer.
So, good on him and good for the Jays. As I have stated, my first choice was the retention of Edwin Encarnacion, but this will do.
