Encarnacion extended for 3/$27 mm

He picked a good time to have a career year. He's the second Blue Jay in three years to suddenly become a huge HR hitter. He and Bautista have 50 HR between them this year. Not sure if that's good luck by the Blue Jays, good foresight on their part concerning these players' potential, or the results of modern chemistry.

That seems like a pretty good deal for the Jays, especially since EE will be playing only 1b/Dh due to Lawrie.

Ignoring the negative value of his very bad 3b defense, Encarnacion was already worth 2+ rWAR/150 games from 2006-2011-- and that was before his power swing really exploded this year.

Stealing signs, which is very likely too, doesn't seem to account for it all... :scratchchinhmm:
