I don't know if it's the beginning of a trend and this is his new reality, or a one off bad year..but its the first time since 2008, that Bautista has had a WAR under 3.
until we know he isn't going to bounce back, I don't want to talk about him like he is a replacement level player.
Moss meanwhile, has NEVER had a WAR above 3...topping out at 2.4 one year.

Yeah, Bautista might get worse
report Carrera and Barney resigned 1 year deals avoid arbitration
As per Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com, Jays are nearing a deal to bring back Bautista.
I wouldn't mind Saunders back on a 1 or 2 year deal. 2 years with a 3rd year club option would be fine too. Not sure that's what Saunders was thinking he'd get 6 months ago lol
John Lott is reporting the AAV of the deal being discussed is slightly higher than the QO Bautista turned down. Didn't mention how many years.

As alluded to before, lets just hope that last season was an aberration, for Bautista, and not the new reality, or beginning of the downturn.
Need him to be a 3 WAR player again...at least. (Especially with the loss of EE)
Haven't heard numbers...but 2 years 35....get it done! (Though I think it will be a one year thing, and we will do this all again next year)
reading reports now, that they are talking a two eyar deal, for between 35 and 40 mill.

Sounds like the Bautista deal is imminent.
I'm hearing 2 years - $35M-$40M.
Edit: Ooopps Christ beat me too it - like 6 hours ago.
