In a sports news conference, Jose Bautista revealed his terms for an extended contract with the Toronto Blue Jays', consisting of a $150 million dollar deal over a period of five years.
Bautista will not negotiate with the Blue Jays.
"I'm not going to sit here and bargain for a couple of dollars," he stated.
"They either meet it or it is what it is."
Jose made it clear the amount in salary that he was seeking.
"If this is going to happen, they should know what it takes, and I told them the number because they asked me," he stated to a ESPN news reporter.
Bautista is documented as a six time All-Star with 40 home-runs in his resumes, who is currently at a $14 million dollar salary and can become a free agent after the World Series, if contract negotiations are not reached.
The Toronto Blue Jays' general manger, Ross Atkins expressed how Bautista's contract renewal is a private matter.
"It doesn't need to be public, and it won't be from our end."
And asserted there are no miscommunications between the league and Jose, hoping he would keep his focus on baseball.
"To me, it's really clear we've had really clear, effective communication. There is no ambiguity. We can focus on playing baseball. Jose feels good about doing that."
