According to MLBTR, Kendry Morales is heading to Toronto on a 3/$33M deal.

That pretty much signals the end to Edwin Encarnacion's stay in Toronto. I'd be stunned if he doesn't end up in Boston now.

$17.2M Qualifying Offer decisions:

• Jose Bautista, Blue Jays: Rejected

• Yoenis Cespedes, Mets: Rejected

• Ian Desmond, Rangers: Rejected

• Edwin Encarnacion, Blue Jays: Rejected

• Dexter Fowler, Cubs: Rejected

• Jeremy Hellickson, Phillies: Accepted

• Kenley Jansen, Dodgers: Rejected

• Mark Trumbo, Orioles: Rejected

• Justin Turner, Dodgers: Rejected

• Neil Walker, Mets: Accepted

Before last season, no player had ever accepted a qualifying offer until Matt Wieters, Colby Rasmus and Brett Anderson did. This year the free-agent market isn’t fantastic, which made a few of the qualifying-offer cases even more curious.

Pretty sue Maddon got it last year. And as we've seen with others, including TLR & MM, when the team is expected to win the Mgr rarely gets it.

That being said, Maddon was a close 2nd.

Rick Porcello wins AL Cy Young in a bizarre voting pattern, the lovely Kate Upton ain't happy & goes on a Trump-esque Twitter rant:

Max Scherzer wins the NL Cy Young by a mile, Lester & Hendricks not even close:

In the words of Mrs. EOCF

"Well he's obviously dead to me now."

Hopefully this narrows the market on Fowler.
