Blue Jays sign Springer

Recommended Posts

Its a good get.  The back half isn't like LeMahieu with the please play him six more years thing, and leapfrogging them in 2/3/4/<never> years will be tougher.

Vlad might need to try 3B again if they want to start Tellez and all three of last year's outfielders.

He's 5 years almost to the day older than Correa, not that we have $150M lying around, but some chance in 2022 whoever Correa's team is may have a shot at the younger/cheaper/better thing.    

Using B-Ref tonight Springer as wild guess for overall Correa comp has 28 WAR in 3600 PA to Correa's 26 WAR in 2600 PA, though Springer better and healthier lately.

Maybe now Realmuto in his Bryce/Dombrowski group text is like - ha, your $100M offer, so puny.   He lacks Mets stalking horse though.

Good job Jays buying more good players when you've grown enough good players.   I'm good with anybody beating the Yankees, or at least stressing Gerrit Cole's summer, one more year.

Interesting piece contrasting Springer and Semien getting six years and one year from same club, when Semien is the younger by a year and as productive in their pre-FA part of their careers.

Centerfielders discussed as even similarly likely to lose their positional value as shortstops around 30/31, but Springer getting 8X guaranteed money despite all that explained as hitting, hitting, hitting.
