Ain't gonna happen, thankfully. He would not be good for team chemistry. He's not a team player.

As well, he burned his bridges with management.
If they sign RAY and GRAY….then it’s NOWAY lol

Wouldn't that be something.

Do you think that Nate Pearson can find his stride this year? What a bonus that would be.

He went for the money. Can't say I blame him.

We have to sign Ray now or we're fucked.
Mets are after him too: https://www.yardbarker.com/mlb/arti..._robbie_ray_and_kevin_gausman/s1_127_36561125
I am of the belief that not signing these two is not the end of the world. Ray had a career year last year and who is to say he does not pull an R.A. Dickey and turns into a .500 thrower.

Semien was tough to lose, but he also had a career year last year and who knows if he will repeat that level of performance.

Hopefully one of our young infielders will pick up the slack and put up half decent numbers.

  1. "Contract Prediction: Five years, $120 million
    After struggling to a 6.19 ERA in 16 starts with the Atlanta Braves in 2019 before closing out the year in the Cincinnati Reds bullpen, Kevin Gausman turned a flier contract from the San Francisco Giants in 2020 into a qualifying offer last offseason.
    The 30-year-old accepted the one-year, $18.9 million deal, banking on his stock continuing to climb over a full season, and he wound up being one of the best pitchers in baseball and the ace of the first-place Giants staff.
    He finished 14-6 with a 2.81 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 227 strikeouts in 192 innings, and while he stumbled a bit after the All-Star break, a strong September should help erase any concerns that his stellar first half was a fluke.
    There is always risk in paying for a player's career year, but the development of his splitter into one of baseball's most lethal putaway pitches over the past two seasons has helped take his game to another level, and that makes it easier to buy into the idea of his continued success.
P.S. The above is in quotation marks which means I did not compose it myself. Yes, it is a cut and paste.

Yeah, Jays still have a scary offence without him.


He wasn't happy when he had to play 2nd base.
All the best to him and not getting anymore protection in a weak lineup. Say goodbye to all those nice juicy fastballs on the inner half

I don’t blame him either. Call me immature, but I’m kind of hoping he slips on a bag of batting practice balls in spring training and breaks his leg.

The Blue Jays gave him a one-year contract to boost up his market value in a star studded lineup with all the protection in the world…….I am a little bitter. I knew his serious demeanour was really that of a pompous snob prick.
