    Default Toronto Blue Jays(Jose Bautista)demands 150mil for 5yrs?

    espn./ap..

    Jose Bautista's "number" to agree to an extension with the Toronto Blue Jays is $150 million in a five-year deal, TSN reported Tuesday.
    TSN cited two sources familiar with the situation in its report.
    Editor's Picks


    • Jose Bautista's hard demands should make Blue Jays' decision easier

      Jose Bautista might have actually made things easier for the Blue Jays' front office by going public with his hard stance on contract negotiations.
    • If re-signing Jose Bautista makes the Toronto front office nervous, maybe there's another alternative to boosting the offense: trading for Joey Votto.

    On Monday, Bautista, who will turn 36 on Oct. 19, addressed his contract situation and said the Blue Jays came to him two weeks ago to gauge what it would take for him to sign a new deal.
    "If this is going to happen, they should know what it takes, and I told them the number because they asked me," Bautista told ESPN's Britt McHenry.
    Bautista told reporters Monday that he is "not willing to negotiate."
    "I'm not going to sit here and bargain for a couple of dollars," he said, adding later, "They either meet it or it is what it is."
    On Tuesday, new Blue Jays general manager Ross Atkins wouldn't publicly address Bautista's stance, saying, "It doesn't need to be public, and it won't be from our end."
    "To me, it's not a cloud," Atkins said Tuesday. "To me, it's really clear we've had really clear, effective communication. There is no ambiguity. We can focus on playing baseball -- Jose feels good about doing that."

    Bautista is earning $14 million this year after the Blue Jays exercised the 2016 option in the outfielder's current deal, and he can become a free agent after the World Series. The 35-year-old had 40 home runs and 114 RBIs last season, as Toronto won the AL East and reached the playoffs for the first time since winning the 1993 title.
    Bautista said he told Toronto he expects "present-day value." Atkins described their exchanges as "incredible" and praised the six-time All-Star's work ethic.
    "I love being around the guy," Atkins said. "I love talking baseball with him. I love to hear him talking about his career. It gets me fired up."
    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    imhop...he wont get it...and he wont from any other team either...

    if its a 5 year deal he will be 41 years old, his play will drop off I think, and at 150 million thats insane!!!

    I'm not concerned with the 2 sluggers contracts right now, nor should anyone else, including them.

    They have a team right now that could and should take the east.......minimum.

    Go Jay's!...............looking forward to April and the rest of the spring & summer.

    Bautista`s best years are in his rear view mirror, he is a diminishing asset. Trade him, get rid of him and use that money for some pitching.

    Gonna be real interesting is right.........Bautista is testing the waters big time. The Jays brought in Mark Shapiro form Cleveland as their new president and he`s not known as a spender but rather a cheapo. Bautista`s idea of "takin` it to the streets" so to speak isn`t a bad one like Kadri did with the Leafs a couple years ago.....the difference is that Bautista has actually produced whereas Kadri had done nothing to even warrant a contract nevermind a fat increase. Taking it to the streets in Bautista`s case prevents the Toronto media misinformation machine from going out full throttle and making a mockery of the proceedings. Bautista`s one big hurdle is that he`s DEMANDING Miggy Cabrera and Derek Jeter type money while not being even close as an all round asset to his team. If he continues to demand he`ll sit out because no team will pay him that kind of money.
    Bautista is all about Bautista, always has been, the Jays and their fans are a far second to that.......in Bautista`s case I can appreciate his honesty in that he doesn`t hide behind the veil of the team and the fans first ideology as a ruse during negotiations. I`ll respect him for that......he`s doing it above table.
