I don't think he's that good. He'll be worse than his 2019 xFIP IMO. But he should be a reliable arm nevertheless. Crazy what $20M gets you in the arms department.

Wei-Yin Chen got more than that and is only half the pitcher Ryu is.

Chen’s deal turned out poorly. We’ll see here. Pitching is king in the juiced ball/small park era.

Ryu answers the question Mackus always asks.

Who has had a shoulder injury (he has surgery on it) and then came back and was good.

I guess Britton also answers this but he had to be a reliever.

Chen signed a 5/80 deal.

That seems high, but he got it, so good for him.

I had thought it was $90M. Your probably right. Point still remains.

I saw a rumor about the Jays looking at a Price trade, although not whether it would be along with or superseded by this deal.

 

They must think they are close to being ready for a run.

Good offense with a lot of cheap talent for a while. It’s like playing with your QB contract before free agency.

I like what the Jays are doing.  It's not going to be a dominant team, but it's never going to be a dominant team.  Build opportunity and go out and see what happens.  They've restructured the front of their rotation with Ryu, Chase Anderson and Roark.  Not great but something that can give you some QSs.

 

They have an interesting lineup.  I could see them adding a guy like Castellanos still and maybe another guy like Neil Walker that can move around some.
