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.
Wow. They've been owned by Ted Turner, Turner Broadcasting, AOL TimeWarner, or TimeWarner (in one or another of those incarnations) since 1976! I knew it had been a long time, but I had no idea just how long, wow. So, why the sale?
