Now that Matt Garza has signed with Milwaukee, it would appear the bar has been set for teams going after Ubaldo Jimenez or Ervin Santana -- or both. Garza landed a four-year deal with the Brewers worth $50 million that could jump to five years and $67 million with an option year and performance bonuses. The general feeling being that Garza is the best pitcher of the three and didnt have a draft pick compensation attached to his signing. The Blue Jays, for instance, would have to give up a second round pick if they sign either Santana or Jimenez. Initially, I believed Santana would be a better choice for the Jays. After all, he has spent his entire career in the American League and has pitched at least 200 innings in five of eight seasons, including three of the last four. Inconsistency has plagued him, though Santana gave up a league-leading 39 home runs in 2012 and had a 5.16 ERA. He did have a bounce back year in 2013 with the Royals, though reducing his ERA to 3.24 and increasing his percentage of ground ball outs. Further to the plus side, Santana has thrown a no-hitter, has been an all-star and pitched in the postseason with the Angels and injuries have not been a problem the last four years. Hes also just 31-years-old. Santana is also represented by the Richmond Virginia agency, Proformance, which counts among its clients Jose Bautista. Jimenez is a year younger at 30 and has had more dramatic peaks and valleys in his career than Santana. After peaking in 2010 with Colorado, when he went (19-8) with a 2.88 earned run average and struck out 214 while earned all-star honours, Jimenez came apart in 2011 with the Rockies and was ultimately traded to Cleveland where he continued to struggle. The Tribes pitching coach, Mickey Calloway, worked hard with Jimenez and in the second half of last season he pitched like an ace, lowering his ERA to 3.30 and striking out 9.6/9 innings. Jimenez over his career has walked more than Santana but has also given up fewer home runs. He has a wider pitching repertoire than Santana and over the course of his career at various times has hit 100 MPH on the radar gun. Jimenez pitched in the postseason in the National League and essentially was the man who got Cleveland into that Wild Card game last season. Jimenez is represented by SFX, which is the baseball division of Relativity Sports. SKX represents Adam Lind, Kyle Drabek Chris Getz (just signed by the Jays) and Munenori Kawasaki. Jimenez has been fairly durable over his career but hasnt put the number of 200 inning seasons that Santana has. Jimenez has been a staff ace, while at his best Santana has been a two or a three. I still think the Blue Jays would lean towards Santana for his durability and larger body of American League experience, but Jimenez could carry over what he did in the second half of last season and he could be the Jays number one or two starter. Tough call, but then youve got to question whether its worth committing four years to either of these two when you consider the potential free agents after the 2014 season. This class includes Jon Lester, Max Scherzer, James Shields, Hisashi Iwakuma, Johnny Cueto (though he has a club option), Justin Masterson and the Jays own Brandon Morrow (who also has a $10 million club option). It might be better this year for the Jays to see what theyve got from within and then go all-in next year with a potentially deeper pool of free agent pitchers. It was interesting what skipper John Gibbons said on TSN Drive with Dave Naylor last week; that it was only 50-50 that the Blue Jays would add another veteran arm. Then he added that the Jays werent certain the pitchers that were still available were really difference makers. That sounds like opening the door for building from within and waiting until next year on the free agents. In case you were wondering; the highest three paid Blue Jays in 2014 - as of this moment - will be lefty Mark Buehrle at $18 million, Jose Reyes at $16 million and Jose Bautista at $14 million. The only other one to streak $10 million is R.A Dickey at $12 million. This is a great trivia question. Who was managing David Wells the day he won his 200th career game? Although the former Jays lefty was with the Yankees, it wasnt Joe Torre. Anticipating Roger Clemens was going to retire at the end of that season, Torre handed over the managerial reigns to Clemens for that one day. Wells won his 20Oth and Clemens fooled everyone by continuing to pitch after that season.

We suffer with them when they lose and rejoice when they win. The trouble is some teams never seem to win. Of the 30 teams in Major League baseball, eight have never won the World Series. In the American League, Tampa Bay, Seattle, Texas and Houston have never celebrated victories in the Fall Classic, but at least the Rays, Rangers and Houston got that far. Seattle, the Blue Jays expansion cousin, never has. In the National League, Washington/Montreal, Milwaukee, Colorado and San Diego have never emerged victorious, though all but the Nationals/Expos have made it to the World Series. Washington and Milwaukee have actually tasted victory, but with other franchises in the past - the Senators and the Braves. All of this made me wonder how the other "Big 4" sports compare. In the NHL, 12 of the current 30 teams have never won, though Ottawa and Vancouver did capture Cups in the early 1900s. Still, essentially that is 40 per cent of the teams that have never reached the "promised land." In the NFL, 14 of the 32 teams have never won the Super Bowl, though I must add some of those 14 teams won titles in the old AFL, or in the NFL before the merger.Still, thats just over 43 per cent who havent been Super Bowl Champs. The NBA has the worst percentage of all. 16 of 30 teams have all been also-rans for their entire current existence, or just over 53 per cent. I dont really know what any of this means. Someone once told me, its all about the journey and not the end result. The emotional ups and downs make sports what they are and why they are so compelling. The debate over the Washington Redskins name and whether it should be changed has pretty much reached the boiling point now. Im in the camp that believes it should be changed, but its interesting how the name came to be and its baseball connection. Washington wasnt the original home of that NFL franchise. They began in Boston in 1932, as the Braves. They played in the home park of Bostons National League franchise, the Braves, so owner George Preston Marshall figured it was best to stick with the same name. The following year, though, he struck a better deal and moved the team to Fenway Park; the home of the American League Red Sox. To pay homage to the Bosox, he wanted to include the word Red in the teams new nickname. It also so happened that his coach, William "Lone Star" Dietz, had a mother of Indian heritage.dddddddddddd That lead Marshall to combine the colour with a rather strange tribute to his coach, who eventually wound up in the College Football Hall of Fame. None of that justifies the name; its just interesting to find out how it came about. There was a special anniversary this week. November 7th marked 50 years since the Yankees Elston Howard won the American Leagues Most Valuable Player Award. The Yankees have had so many great catches over their history; from Bill Dickey to Yogi Berra, Thurman Munson and Jorge Posada, that at times Howard gets pushed into the background. But he occupies a special place in Yankees history. He was the first African-American player to suit up with the Yankees in 1955. That was a full eight years after Jackie Robinson broke the colour barrier with the Brooklyn Dodgers. It was to the Yankees shame that it took that long for them to employ a black ballplayer. Jackie Robinson played his first season in the Dodgers organization at Montreal with the old Royals. Elston Howard too had his Canadian connection. He was an all-star with the Pennant-winning Toronto Maple Leafs of the International League in 1954 - the year before joining the Yankees. In addition to the MVP honours, Howard won four World Series rings with the Yankees. He was also with the Red Sox in 1967 for their miracle run under Dick Williams, which ended with them losing the Fall Classic with St. Louis. That Boston club was the parent team of the Maple Leafs. Baseballs offseason activity is really going to start to percolate next week. The 13 players who were offered those $14.1 million qualifying offers will have to decide by November 12 whether to accept or reject them. At the same time, the general managers will be meeting in Orlando, Florida from November 11-13. Remember, the GMs meetings were a couple of days earlier a year ago and that is where the genesis of the mammoth 12-player deal began to evolve. That deal was completed on November 13 and was finally approved by commissioner Bud Selig on Monday November 19. Im not saying the Blue Jays are going to pull off anything close to a deal of that scope, but they have to be active; they must improve. The next week or so should be very interesting.
