Wow. Okay, I just saw a report that says the Blue Jays offered Vernon Wells a seven-year contract extension worth $126 million. That's $18 million per year, folks. For a guy that was scheduled to make $5.6 million this year. If only we could all get raises like that.
Seriously, this makes me very happy. Trying to keep Vernon in Toronto is a class move, and I appreciate how hard they're working at it. Vernon is a Blue Jay through and through, and I would love to see him flashing that gold glove in center as the rock of that offense until my son turns 10.
