He has had one good season, not sure why everyone wanted him so much. Hoping for the best, but see this as Mo’s next salary anchor on this team.

An innings eating starting pitcher was very much needed, IMHO. I hope we get the 2021 version of him!

Well that was my fifth choice but he came relatively cheap compared to many on the market I guess. Let’s definitely hope last season was indicative of the future and not his absurdly bad 2020 season. They say he has a great sinker but his ground ball percentage last year was nothing to write home about.

Now sign Garcia, trade the Bum Formerly Known as Paul DeJong and go get a middle infielder.

Where you hearing this?

If true could be worse I guess. I was thinking 4 years 40.

I like it, but he's not a TOR guy for sure. And that's what they need if they want to be a WS contender.

Two things.

The contract is cheap. Surprisingly cheap. And that’s a good thing.

But this isn’t a guy who isn’t going to move the needle much.

It’s posted on several of the big baseball writers Twitter pages. Think Passen had it first.

The one thing this guy isn’t is an innings eater. He’s a 5IP average guy,

He is a TOR guy! He played for the Blue Jays just last year. :P

Half asking and buying mediocre once again.

A typical Mo move, which means it sucks

A solid sinker, pitched in the rough AL East which is tough on pitchers……Toronto with a poor infield defense and our Defense being solid…win win for Metz and Cards

Two kinds of innings eaters.

One's who pitch deep into games and save your bullpen. He's not that.

One's who make close to 30 starts and keep you from needing 11 different guys to start at least 8 games. He is that.
