Toronto has 10 games verses New York through 19 May. Chances are good Granderson, Teixeira and A-Rod will still be missing. No one is certain how effective Rivera and Jeter will be, but being as good as before might not happen. I have my doubts about how effective the balance of this Team is, especially because of who is no longer there.
Luxury Tax counts the continuous years in the Luxury Tax range from prior to new MLB contract. The details of this make excessive spending punative, not just expensive, and starts immediately and just gets worse. New York will do everything in their power to avoid this. Any acquisitions will be equal $$$ for $$$ without increasing Salaries. Implications of this make re-signing Cano almost impossible.
Where is all the Tampa offensecoming from? They now have Kelly Johnson and Yunel Escobar. Their Starters, while being good are not as good as last year. Chances are very slim to nonexistent for their re-signing of Price, which will make it harder still. Tampa's acquisitions will be equal $$$ for $$$ without increasing Salaries.
Toronto will be Buyers, with J.A. Happ and possibly Ricky Romero being moved if necessary.
