OK, so this is nothing different than what we heard this morning, but I think it’s still relevant that the feeling out there remains that Kelly Johnson is “giving serious thought” to accepting the Jays’ offer of arbitration. This time it’s Jon Morosi of Fox Sports who tweets the information.
The fact that Johnson has yet to sign a deal with another club is, indeed, a little peculiar. I mean, for fuck sakes, If Jon Rauch can do it…
We’ve been talking about it in the office here, and to me, the only reason I figure that he hasn’t signed a deal elsewhere yet is that such a deal isn’t out there. Given some of the middle infield shitbags who’ve received guaranteed deals already this off-season, I have a hard time believing that’s the case, but what the fuck is the other possible explanation?
So… there’s that.
