Source: #BlueJays on verge of acquiring Josh Johnson from #Marlins. Deal could be even larger than that.


Ken Rosenthal ‏@Ken_Rosenthal

Buerhle headed to #BlueJays along with Josh Johnson, sources tell me and @jonmorosi.


Jon Morosi ‏@jonmorosi

One source tells me Jose Reyes is expected to go to Toronto, as well. This is not a joke.

The Marlins are getting a huge helping of salary relief so the owner can keep filling his pockets.

So, Marlins get all that public money go build new ballpark, then sell off the entire club, bit by bit. Nice management team.

Bob Elliott of the Toronto Sun reports that Jeff Mathis will be part of the megadeal with the Marlins.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel's Juan C. Rodriguez says the Marlins will also get pitching prospect Anthony DeSclafani. It appears that they are the final two players the Fish will receive in addition to Yunel Escobar, Adeiny Hechavarria, Henderson Alvarez, Jake Marisnick and Justin Nicolino. Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, Mark Buerhle, Emilio Bonifacio and John Buck are headed to Toronto along with a reported $4 million in a deal that could be finalized later Tuesday.

David Glass' response to the following:

David Glass: YOU GOT TO BE KIDDING ME! Secretary, get Dayton on the phone NOW!

Dayton Moore: You called, sir?

David Glass: Did you just see the news of the latest trade?

Dayton Moore: I believe so. It's hard to believe any franchise could give up so much, isn't it?

David Glass: You bet it is, but that's the beauty of it! Could you imagine if we could unload Butler, Gordon, and all the other high-priced guys we got? We'd be rolling in dough!

Dayton Moore: But sir, that would make our team even worse than it is now, plus we're already doing that, just not as extravagantly as the Marlins.

David Glass: EXACTLY! I won't accept having another franchise cheaper than ours. Work a trade to get rid of the three highest paid guys we got for more minor league prospects. DO IT NOW!

Just another example of why it is absolutely insane and borderline criminal for local tax payers to provide stadium funding for pro teams.

I am the opposite of a big government guy, but Congress really should look deeper into these situations.

I live in T.O. And haven't seen a competitive team in years. If this trade comes through they have a really good chance to compete next year. I think this trade addresses a good majority of their team needs.

**** the Taxpayer

Yeah, that shit needs to be outlawed.. I would give Obama a pass, if he decided to pass some ridiculous law that took away franchises from owners that took taxpayer money for stadiums and are not fielding a competitive team and reaping in money from others and gave the team to the city/board to run ala Green Bay for baseball and football..

I am sure it will be fucked up, but not as bad as it is now for some owners..

The Jays still need to add a bat if they want to be as good as the 2008 team. Lind and Gose are black holes that need to be improved upon (or at least platooned).

The last time the Jays were this aggressive in the off-season they won the WS. The only reason Toronto fans have been optimistic between then and now is that there hasn't been a hope in hell for the Leafs or Raptors. AA is addressing the Jays needs and I'm sure he isn't done yet. Look for either Arencebia or Buck to get traded (and hopefully Lind). Another pitcher and a fist baseman would do the trick.

Leafs are a fucking mess. Burke is the worst GM in the NHL, he loves american players and there's not one player from Ontario on this team. Raptors are just as bad, the GM constantly loves to draft europeans and division 2 no names.
