B.J. is a B.J.
Depending upon who you believe, B.J. Ryan and the Toronto Blue Jays may have reached a preliminary agreement on a $47 million, five-year contract. If this is true, and I'll bet it is, it's the largest deal for a reliever in the history of baseball.
Rogers takes some of my money every month, I have no problem with them blowing it on upgrades to my ball team. He had 36 saves in 41 chances last season for the Baltimore Orioles and went 1-4 with a 2.43 ERA, striking out 100 in 70 1-3 innings.
You have to have a dependable closer if you're going to go anywhere in this league. There are no World Series banners hanging in SkyDome today if there was no Tom Henke and Duane Ward. Speaking of Henke, do you remember this Ryan?
