The Blue Jays and Lyle Overbay have reached an agreement on a four year deal, worth 24 million dollars. After players like Juan Pierre or Dave Roberts receiving ten million a year, Overbay, who batted .312 with 22 HR and 92 RBI, accepts a deal that would give him 6 million a year. This signing will obviously join Moises Alou and Chris Carpenter as the best signings this off season. Now that Overbay is signed, the Blue Jays have three remaining arbitration eligibles: Alex Rios, Reed Johnson and Scott Downs.
