I don't think Boston makes that trade within their division, and I don't think you need to give Rosario a 2-year deal. He's nothing more than a DH.

I could see Kris Bryant making sense for the Jays, however.

But I could also see them getting in on Bauer.

Why would the Blue Jays, or any team, give Brad Hand 22M and a three-year commitment when they could have had him for less than 10 on a 1-year deal?

@natedog less money per, especially when you look at hendricks deal, the next best reliever will want more than a 1yr contract.

1 year deals at higher AAVs are always more preferential to teams than long-term deals at slightly less AAV.

I guess you could argue that it was too early to make that type of commitment with Brad Hand, and that things changed now. But I think there was something teams saw in Hand that probably made them not want to drop that kind of money.

Until I see that contract, I won't believe he's getting it.

Oh look, a 1-year deal for Brad Hand.
