Encarnacion signs with Cleveland
Sad day for Jays fans as Edwing moves on to Cleveland.
Lots of talk of who is to blame for the Jays not re-signing Encarnacion. Some say the agent overplayed their hand while others are saying the Jays didn't give Edwin enough time. The fact he gave up 20M in guaranteed money by "waiting" is something Encarnacions camp will have to deal with.
Personally, if Edwin wanted to come back to Toronto all along as he says (and I don't doubt he had Toronto in mind), he had to know the Jays were looking at contingency plans as well and weren't going to wait too long. Was two days after offering Edwin enough time before jumping on Morales? I guess we will never know.
What I do know is Cleveland just got a lot better. I wish Edwin had gone to the NL. On the bright side, he didn't sign with the Yankees or the Red Sox.
