(Beautiful quote by Rays Renegade, http://twitter.com/RaysRenegade on Adam Lind in my comment section)
I love it when Jordan Bastian The Blue Jay Beat Writing Machine, tweets about an upcoming Jays press conference. Today I was glued to my Twitter seeing what was up with the team.
The Jays committed to DH/OF/possible future firstbaseman Adam Lind today to a 4-year, 18 million dollar contract with an amazing 3 club options! This is a great contract considering Lind’s ability to hit. He is not really a great contributor on defense, so with these options, the Jays ‘have an out’ if his bat struggles.
That likely won’t happen! Adam Lind has a solid approach at the plate. Jays fans have seen the kid grow immensly since his rookie year. He is the kind of player that just keeps improving his hitting. Last year Lind possibly came to an apex hitting .305/35HR/114RBI’s! For Jay fans, another season with similar numbers would be amazing. But I don’t believe that is Lind’s apex. I think those number are only a taste of what we might see from him in the future, and I look for him to improve upon them this year.
Good news to start the season! I will be yelling ‘Lindooooor’ for years to come now!
