i honestly think we should try and sign marcum and e jackson. then trade 4 a good number 2 or 3 starter. then keep alvarez, happ, jenkins, etc as depth in case of injuries. i think that would be the best way to go.
id roll with that
I think Sanchez gets at least 5 years and at least $14M per season. I wouldn't be surpised at all if someone gives him 6yrs $90M. He's not an "ace" or likely to be a Cy Young candidate, but those guys get $20M+ per year. He's only 28 and I know people like to say he's at most a #3, but the reality is that on most teams he's at least a #2.
****, wrong thread again!

AA on 5-yr #Jays limit on contracts: "There hasn’t been any talk of going beyond it right now. You never say never, things can change"Anibal Sanchez reportedly seeking $90m over 6 yrs. In general terms, could #Jays take that on? “We could accommodate that type of AAV."AA on priorities: "It’s a bit more of a wait-and-see approach with LF right now and being a little more aggressive in terms of the rotation"

I'm not sold on Sanchez for that price...committing $90MM to a mid rotation starter just doesn't seem like a good investment.
If he has been going aggressive on pitching, then I wonder what that means because we haven't heard many FA's getting offers yet so maybe he's going HAM over the phone lines for a SP..
that would make us the 100//7 years team . I don't think we're gonna get him.anibal sanchez's price going up? he asked 1 team for $90M, 6 yrs, and another about $100M, 7 yrs.
The escalating price for mid rotation pitchers is a big reason baseball needs a hard salary cap soon!
^^Yeah, cause they didn't say the exact same thing 5 years ago.
I can see Sanchez getting 14-15 mill over 5 years max. Wilson took a pay cut to sign with the Angels.
No way should AA cave into Sanchez's ******** demand's. Marcum would be a good signing and make a trade or two and I'll be happy.
I'm sure people will get pissed if AA doesn't make a big splash in FA but other than Greinke there really isn't much for starters. We might have a huge need for pitching next year but unless you can sign an Ace I wouldn't overpay not with the Big three, Hutch and Drabek all being ready the year after next or sooner.
