    Man, the Blue Jays really seem to get the strong end of this one. Holy cow.

    Blue Jays giving up a couple young players that are potential All-Stars for a few overrated players. Marlins definitely win this trade.

    Did you see that the Cubbies signed "Moonshot" Scott Baker today?

    Now that I see th guys going back to Miami it's hard to totally hate this deal... But they should have insisted on d'Arnaud too...

    Re: Insane Trade Between Marlins and Blue Jays

    Blue Jays add over $40 million in payroll in a division with upstart O's, Yankees, Rays and I guess the Red Sox. Yeah, nice move. I wonder if these reports are accurate anyway. I'm pretty sure Buerhle has a no trade clause and I'd be shocked if Reyes didn't.

    definitely a gamble but you cant say the blue jays lost this one at this point in time. lots of young talent coming to miami though that could end up being very very good! in terms of winning now though, jays really did well. their rotation looks really nice and reyes/bonifacio will fit in nicely with their big bats like bautista, lawrie, etc.

    Sick trade. The Jays and Orioles both being legit for the first time in almost 20 years will make the AL east a lot of fun.

    Sox and Yanks might finish 4-5 in the AL East.

    Loria will get crap for a salary dump but Buerle and Reyes were badly overpaid to create hype for the new stadium.


    I like this salary dump trade a lot more than the Sox one with Beckett, Adrian, and Carl Crawford.

    Yeah. I like Theo a lot, but I just don't understand Hoyer at all.

    Okay but if you are worth your weight as a GM and owner don't you parse out these pieces to various teams? Cardinals may have taken a look at Buerhle or Reyes by swapping Furcal and prospects. Johnson alone should command many prospects. Loria is a complete a hole. He pushed financing of lime/orange stadium onto the taxpayers and it's a joke. If I lived in Miami I'd be ******. Really, one year? I can't say enough about what a fraud Loria is. It's shameful.

    Would have happened this year had the Jays' season not been destroyed by injury.

    Also, I can't help but imagine that playing in Toronto is what Reyes had in mind one year after ditching New York to play in Miami.

    Re: Insane Trade Between Marlins and Blue Jays

    Being a Jays fan, I love the trade. They are giving up some young talent but keep d'Arnaud and some of the other top prospects that I figured they would be sending when I heard about it. Obviously AA is taking a win now approach after building the talent level for his first few years. Will be interesting to see what else he does this year, but you can't be made about this trade. Barring the injury bug that killed them last year, they should be as good as anyone in the division now.
