Semien to the Rangers for 7 years. Shoot.

7 years is nuts for Semien especially as he's still getting 25M per year.

Still it sucks to see him go.  They added a bullpen arm and extended Berrios but the early returns on the off-season aren't great.  It sounds like Gaussman is playing the Jays to get more money out west.

Sucks but 7 years is insane. It's nice to see other teams have to add those extra years to land a big name.

Wow. Not sure if this closes the door on Ray but that's a solid addition to the rotation at a pretty reasonable price.

Really hoping we can keep Ray. Jays weren't far off from being a good team but losing Semien and Ray feels like that would be pretty tough...

Maybe. But adding Gausman and the picks for Semien/Ray would not be a terrible outcome either.

Don't worry they still are a good team. Gausman is comparable to Ray and they will add another infield bat and probably more pitching.

Wow, Scherzer to the Mets for 3 years/130 million.

Jays have signed a bunch of dudes... What do we think?

Front end of the Mets rotation is going to be something.

Phelps could be a useful piece in the bullpen if he's healthy. The rest? A hearty meh.

To bad about Semien, I guess Ray is gone as well.  Time for one of our prospects to step up not named Manoah.
