Don't remember seeing this addressed in any detail in any other threads so I figured I start a thread on it.
On March 31st the Jays need to make a decision on whether they will pick up all three of Aaron Hills options worth 26M. If they don't then they have till after the World Series to decide whether to pick up 1 or 2 option years worth 8M each. If they decline both options Aaron Hill will be a free agent after this season.
I think its more than likely the Jays will wait till season end to make a decision on Hill, thus voiding the 2014 option worth 10M. I think this is probably the best way to go.
