Some people say the Dodgers are worth $2 billion because of future television revenue. I say it’s because of billion-dollar ideas like this one: The Big Kid Dog. According to the Dodgers’ Twitter feed it’s “a 100% all-beef dog topped with gooey Mac and Cheese and covered in Fritos.”
Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.
The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
