A real banger of a deal.

Again? They already signed him to a 6-year deal earlier today!

And Brantley, and Yates.  Do they have enough money to continue to pursue Realmuto?

I guess the Canadian Dollar has slid in value so much that Toronto has to offer duplicate contracts to players in order to offset that.

Now to address the pitching staff...

George Springer sounds like an old timey character name from The Natural.

Shiat, I just saw that Rifftrax short on PlutoTV.  Talk about an annoying character.

Will they bang trash cans for him?

What's the Canadian word for "cheater"?  Isn't like "former Astro" or something?

George Springer has the facial expression of a dumb hot chick.

It was 300m/12yrs. The deal was so big it had to be broken up into two reports.

Ker_Thwap: George Springer sounds like an old timey character name from The Natural.


Buster Posey is the most old timey MLB name of the past two decades, but George Springer is way up there.

It's Canada. They'll bang Recycling Bins.

18 months into this deal Toronto will hate having it on their books. That is how long it will take to realize that they didn't win the WS in Springer's first season and aren't going to win it in his second season. At that point they'll realize that the team is poorly put together and look to blow it up, but nobody will want to take Springer off of their hands.
