Just a thought here: if Florida is the widdle weenie, and California is the behind, then Houston really is T-town. Humidex checks out.

Deebo:
Outfielder George Springer and the Toronto Blue Jays are in agreement on a deal, sources familiar with the situation tell ESPN.

Springer is headed to Dunedin for a physical. And if all goes according to plan, Toronto will get the star it’s been looking for all winter.— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) January 20, 2021

There it is.

Rosenthal has it at 6/150.

George Springer is a power hitting CF who's been with the Astros his whole career. It's a big deal and not without risk but the Jays needed to upgrade their outfield defense, Springer does that, and he's a very good hitter.

I think it's definitely a positive move. It gives the Jays a lot of options in terms of moving one of their OF to DH or including them in a trade for pitching and all it costs is money. The Jays aren't close to the Tax so it doesn't really preclude them from making other moves and if they need to eat some of the back half...eh, they can afford it.
