If Ervin Santana is facing a tough decision about where to play his baseball this season, it may have just got a little easier for him.

The free agent starting pitcher is edging towards signing for a new team with the Baltimore Orioles and the Toronto Blue Jays favourite to sign him up.

It seems that everyone in Canada is trying to get Santana to move northwards, with a popular pizza chain giving him further incentive to choose the Blue Jays.

Using Twitter to get their message to the MLB star, they offered to give him 100 free pizzas and another 100 to local kids if he chooses Toronto.

They tweeted: "Hey @ErvinSantana_54, an incentive to join the @bluejays. 100 Free Pizzas for you + 100 for local kids. You in? @JoeyBats19 @Encadwin."

But there is obviously some serious thought going into Santana's decision and we're not sure how beneficial 100 pizzas will be for a pro athlete.

Santana is thought to be working around a one-year deal worth $14 million so he could certainly afford to buy his own pizzas if such a craving hits him. The main sticking point could be the offer of giving the pizzas to local children with the hope that Santana will look beyond his own gain to benefit the youngsters of Canada.

We're waiting for a restaurant in Baltimore to make a similar offer.
