The Blue Jays reached a five-year, $30.1MM agreement with Ricky Romero yesterday, locking him up for all of his arbitration seasons and his first year of free agency. As MLBTR's Ben Nicholson-Smith noted, the deal is nearly identical to contracts signed by Jon Lester ($30MM) and Yovani Gallardo ($30.1MM). Lester's five-year deal will run through 2013, Gallardo's through 2014, and Romero's through 2015, while each contract has a $13MM club option for one extra season.
Taking into account Lester's and Gallardo's performances so far, and looking ahead to the future for all three young pitchers, today's poll question is this:
Which team's five-year contract will provide the best value?
