Jose Bautista is the best– it kinda goes without saying– and reportedly he has the ear of Alex Anthopoulos, or at the very least is looked to for advice and is kept abreast of what’s happening in the front office, at least some what.
Or… maybe I’ve been getting that sense entirely wrong, because…
Whats up with all these teams saying its their policy not to give more than 5 years or No-Trade clauses???

Um… Jose. It’s nice that you’ve got Winter Meetings fever like the rest of us, but you mean like Paul Beeston’s policy to not give more that five years? Or the contracts without no-trade clauses that enabled the Jays to pull off a deal with the Marlins that brought this out of you?

I mean, I’m all for showing solidarity with union bros– Bautista certainly wouldn’t want those kind of limitations when he eventually hits free agency– but… Jesus, Jose, not while the Marlins’ corpse is still warm!
