I wonder if the deal is worth that much if the Jays don't overpay for BJ Ryan. Word is it was a 3 year, 30 million dollar offer, and now it's possibly 5 years, 50 million?
Now word is the Phillies are going after Tom Gordon to be their closer, since Wagner is now out of the picture. I guess he'll be cheaper than Wagner, which means they could get a starting pitcher, but whoever replaces Wagner is a downgrade.
It pissed me off that the Cardinals got an incredible game out of Benes-especially considering this is a guy who retired earlier this year, and isn't expected to give them more than 4-5 good innings a start-and then blew the lead when he left the game.
