The Announcements Continue!

Continuing the theme of this wonderful Monday, the Blue Jays announced yet another move was made official, as Melky Cabrera has OFFICIALLY signed a 2 year $16 million deal with the Jays...Here's your proof.
In case you haven't read a trillion articles on the signing like I have, it's an awesome deal for the Jays. They will be paying about $2MM/WAR, which is crazy good, considering the league average is $4MM/WAR...So, ya. He is going to regress, but he will still be a definite upgrade over the replacement level(or even below) talent we've had playing left for so many years now. Nothing really else to say other than the 2013 Jays line-up looks something like this, and it's going to be an awesome year!

1. SS Jose Reyes
2. LF Melky Cabrera
3. RF Jose Bautista (ALL THE RBI's)
4. 1B Edwin Encarnacion
5. DH Adam Lind
6. 3B Brett Lawrie
7. CF Colby Rasmus
8. 2B Emilio Bonifacio/Maicer Izturis
9. C J.P. Arencibia
Yes,we do!

That is quite the lineup. It has speed, it has power, it has righties, it has lefties, it has switch hitters, it has everything! Here's to the rest of the off-season going fast so we can get started on this season already!
