At seasons end Yunel Escobar's contract will expire(though he is still under team control). This year he is currently making .435M and it seems pretty likely that he'll be due for a healthy raise. How many years and dollars does he get in the offseason?

5 years $25 million.

I doubt he could ask for much after his performance this year.. they will prob give him a 1-3 year contract max

I agree after this year the Blue Jays are going to be offering a contract that is big on Yunel's Atlanta numbers and also big on his Toronto numbers which are good.

I say a 3 year 10-11 million dollars.

^^^ so you mean 30-33 over 3 years??? Forget that wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy to much thats severely overpaying, i rather sign crawford for those type of numbers..I think the first 2 were spot on 5-7 is reasonable..AA will do it up nicely like he did with romero

Why exactly are we so keen to extend him? He's already under control till 2013, there's no reason to commit a bunch of money to him now (especially if you think Hech will be ready by 2012-ish).

exactly.. the Jays should just give him his raise this year and see what he does next year before they commit to him long term

Total of 10 to 11 million so 3 mill to 3.5 mill a year. Not as much as he's not worth it.

In straight arbitration, I doubt he could get more than 3-4, maybe 4.5. He hasn't really been spectacular this season by any means. He hit .300 last year but he hit .238 in Atlanta and is hitting .287 in Toronto.

I think AA might give him a long term deal something like the 5/25 that someone mentioned earlier although I think the deal probably averages 7 or 8 a year and escalates...something like 3, 5, 7, 9, 11 for 5 years 35, 7 per.

I doubt Escobar can get 8 mil a year after the season hes had which has been disappointing at best

I think he's saying 3 years for a total of $10 or $11 mil ($3 to $3.33 mil/year).

I have no problem going to arb with him this year to establish his current value then looking at an extension after next season.

he'll get what the arby judge gives him. I'm not sure why there are a bunch of multi year contracts in the thread.

they dont have to go to arbitration. we could just sign an extension, so we dont have to go to arbitration in the future, when his value may be higher

they don't have to give him an extension, we could just go to arbitration as he won't make much money.

But a long term extension could end up being cheaper if he rebounds especially if we sign him through a few of his FA years

so why would escobar sign a long term contract now? He wouldnt.

exactly

thats assuming he thinks he would rebound. maybe he cares about secruity and stability. if he has another bad year the offer could be even worse next year.

probably 90 percent of players go all the way through arbitration process (or damn close)rather than buying out years in a multi year contract, especially ones that aren't superstars.

Arbitration. I love what I've seen from him so far, but his problems in Atlanta are still a minor red flag for me. He's still in the "honeymoon" phase in TO and things are going well. I'd like to see how he responds to the bumps and grinds of a full season before offering him substantial money.
