    Morton didn't want to stay. Contemplated retirement, then decide to play again but closer to family in FL.

    Or signed him to a longer deal originally
    That deal was 2Y at $7M per (which was a bargain)
    Why not add team options for year 3 and 4?

    I saw that Charlie Morton signed a one-year deal with the Braves...same figure that the 'rays refused to pay.

    If the Jays play in Buffalo again this year, I don't think George is going to keep as much of that salary as he hoped...

    Am curious whether that is US$150M or C$150M...another thing that makes a big difference and that the media isn't reporting as near as I can tell...

    $150M and 6 years is all took to get him? Houston couldn't come up with that? Makes me think he wanted out of town more than anything to try to lose the cheater title.

    I don't think the squabble was over money but rather the length of contract...

    I heard this on the radio too today
    Made me sad, he is such a great bat
    We knew George was leaving but I held out hope for Btantley

    Guess what?
    It was fake news again!
    First time I been happy how crappy media has become
