    AA's reluctance to even make an offer to a FA reliever can be seen as a passive decision by omission. Teams are signing the higher price ( and generally higher impact) arms and leaving the leftovers...

    Was catcher or 3B one of the immediate or pressing concerns ? No but AA upgraded and added value to the team and its play off goal by a signing and a trade. The same logic or sentiment can be...

    People are erroneously substituting Melky's projected contracts demands onto Aoki.
    I believe that he's looking in the 3 year 22 million neighbourhood.

    I enjoyed having Melky as a contact hitter for the Jays. He was a nice respite from the swing for the fences mentality the Jays tend to fall into. But that price tag is pretty dear for a contact...
