More evidence continues to pile up that MLB owners aren’t quite as poor as they want people to believe. Yesterday’s bit of evidence comes from north of the border, where the Blue Jays signed George Springer to a $150 million contract.

The Jays also signed Kirby Yates on Tuesday.

And might sign LGFT Michael Brantley as well.
