So Mike Redmond will continue to manage a team of Blue Jays minor-leaguers but this time for a Major League salary.
Blue Jays just acquired 5 talented and experienced major leaguers (including 4 former All Stars) for possibly nothing. That never happens.
Marlins clearing up all this cash would be helpful if there were top-top free agents available in the market –> not this year
At least we can finally bury that stupid loviste thing.
Marlins giving away big names, but one can argue that the Blue Jays are getting the core players of a 69-win team.
RT @Buster_ESPN: The Blue Jays-Marlins trade is done… This is going to be one of the all-timers, with Reyes, Johnson, Bonifacio, Buck, Buehrle…holy crow.
If true that the Marlins are getting two Cuban shortstops from the Blue Jays (Escobar and Hechavarria), you have to believe Reyes is gone.
RT @jonmorosi: The shorthand of this deal is something like this: If you are earning a big salary with the Marlins, you are now a Blue Jay.
RT @AKuperstein: Marlins reportedly get Escobar & Hechevarria RT @Ken_Rosenthal: Buerhle headed to #BlueJays along with Josh Johnson, sources tell me
Marlins interested in Youkilis
The Indians, Phillies and Dodgers are looking to upgrade their production at third base and have shown preliminary interest in Youkilis, according to major-league sources. The Mariners and Marlins — the majors’ two worst teams this year in first-base production — have checked in on Youkilis, as well.
