How will this affect Osuna's season?
Would he be more motivated this season?
What i don't understand is why the Jays took a chance on getting Osuna and Stroman upset. The money that they both asked for isn't very far apart from what the Jays offered. Osuna was only $600,000 apart and Stroman is only $400,000 apart. Personally i would just pay them what they wanted especially since we want both of them to stay here for years to come.

Does it not go both ways though? Osuna made $500k last year and now he'll make $5 million...if I was Osuna, I wouldnt care about the $600k.

I see your point but $600,000 is a lot of money to give up. I`m sure his agent found a comparable before Osuna asked for the $5.9.

Does that necessarily mean the Jays offered $5.3M? Or could they have offered less than the figure decided by arbitration?

The Jays submit a number and the player submits a number and the arbitrator has to pick either the players number or the Jays number.

Anyone have a link to the single game tickets presale - it's happening tomorrow per Ticketmaster.

Last year there were tons of links to the Pizza Nova and Rogers pre-sales.... was able to get Opening Day and Canada Day tix ahead of the crowd.

We can't figure out anything. Do you need a special code for the Pre-Sale?? We assume so. If you click on the TM link for more info, it just says that tickets are onsale on Thurs.

Legit big league bat in Diaz...lol? Struggled with the bat last year and was demoted to AAA, where he struggled with the bat too. Going into the season with hope and prayer.

the potential is there though and don't forget he was an all-star in 2016.
