Blue Jays fans have been debating this heavily on social media, do we try and re-sign Marcus Semien or Robbie Ray?
Both betted on themselves, signing one-year deals and both enjoying monster seasons.
What would it cost Mark Shapiro and Ross Atkins to sign both? 50 million per season? How many years would the Jays need to commit on a long-term contract to keep them?
If you were GM, do the Blue Jays Re-Sign Marcus Semien OR Robbie Ray?
Marcus Semien has hit 38 HRs, 91 RBIs and a .273 batting average, he’s been a dugout leader in for the younger guys and played a stellar 2nd base defensively. Trying to reproduce this type of production next season would be very difficult.
Robbie Ray has also had an incredible season. With a 2.68 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and over 220 strikeouts, he’s close to the top of all AL pitcher leaderboards and will even get some serious consideration for the Cy Young award. How much would it cost to nail down a top of the rotation starting pitcher after coming off a year like this?
Should The Blue Jays Re-Sign Marcus Semien OR Robbie Ray?
