Anatomy of the 12-player Blue Jays-Marlins trade: torontosun.com/2012/11/29/ana…
RT @LottOnBaseball: Buehrle says Jays fans will love Reyes and Bonifacio: upbeat players who love to have fun. Reyes “smiling all the time and he wants to win.”
RT @joecapMARLINS: As expected, #Marlins prez Larry Beinfest said RHP Jose Fernandez & OF Christian Yelich will start ’13 at AA.Both will be in MLB ST camp
Grantland ranks Stanton 7th on their MLB Trade Values as “Gone in the Next Two Years, But Man, It’s Gonna Cost Ya”
RT @JimBowdenESPNxm: Marlins AGM Dan Jennings told us they’ve already felt the fall-out of their trade by even minor league free agents
Would Marlins fans be upset if they lied and made no-trade promises to Heath Bell or John Buck?
OK for Buehrle to be upset but he didn’t sacrifice money to join the Marlins. If you want no trade clause, sign somewhere else for less.
Marlins already in PR nightmare so why not trade Giancarlo now? Rebuild the entire farm. Stanton never wanted to stay in Miami.
If Stanton always wanted to head back west, Marlins should try maximizing value now. What can we get from Dodgers, Angels, Padres or Giants?

“Can you believe those [effing] Brewers?” Samson said, not hiding his disgust. “They’re giving away tickets to the last game of the season because they finished over .500. How [effing] stupid is that? Giving away tickets for being ‘average.’ I tell you, we’ll build it up and tear it down year after year if that’s what it takes to win a World Series.”

RT @Deadspin: The Marlins’ megadeal isn’t completely terrible. Sadly for Miami, Jeffrey Loria is.
It’s not a terrible trade for Miami. It’s really not. Their expensive team was poorly constructed, and they chose to blow it up all at once rather than handicap a rebuild with long-term contract. Alvarez or Marisnick may end up being the best player in the deal. They have the money to sign free agents—on their terms, not “we need to get some big names to open a new stadium” terms.
