[MLB] Reported--Blue Jays take on some serious payroll

Right now Jon Morosi and Ken Rosenthal are reporting that Jose Reyes, Josh Johnson, and Mark Buerhle are going to Toronto in exchange for Yunel Escobar and Adeiny Hechavarria. Dont know if this is the complete list of players being moved.

Jeff and HiVolt must be shittin themselves.

I am... lol... I like the idea of getting rid of some young underachievers for some proven major league talent...

Two starters with many years of experience... Huge for the Jays, whose pitching fell apart last year after injuries to an already young & inexperienced staff...

The Marlins sure know how to keep a team. Good luck with Reyes! Sad to see him leave the NL East.

Edit:

Jays get Reyes, Buehrle, Johnson, John Buck and Emilo Bonifacio. What a steal

Marlins gets Yunel Escobar and 3 prospects

Does that mean Ozzie is going to the Jays as well? The only [big league] manager Buehrle has worked for is Ozzie.

I would love to see Ozzie manage the Jays, he is a no bullshit type guy and that's what we need here...

However only if he could tone down his antics a bit when talking to the media...

Hahaha... Sure his name is Stephen Harper (our prime minister) or as we like to call him George W Junior.

Shocked beyond belief, I pissed and shit myself!

Just waiting for the words "official".

It will make a huge difference for this organization.

Will start saving for my playoff tickets..

It's taking a while to become official though... I wonder if there's a health issue of one the players holding things up...

1. Find the player.
2. Health check.
3. Mail to Bud in Milwaukee.
4. MLB Approval.
5. Contact Toronto and Miami that trade is approved.

I expect today or Friday.

Theyre prolly doing a lot of due diligence on Reyes. AstroTurf is gonna do no good for his career.

I never understood why the field at the Dome doesnt have the dirt all the way around the bases like some stadiums do... that would fix the turf problem at least for the infielders, at least for the majority of plays.

Would it? The "dirt" is not dirty, but tiny little rubber pebbles. Ive been on that field and picked up a bunch of the stuff. Totally synthetic.

The field has rubber in it too.

Anyway, while you people were slacking off talking in-depth about the field at the Rogers Centre, I was hoping someone would want to discuss the 2-year $16 million contract with Melky Cabrara Alex just did.

Rogers gave Alex the Mastercard...obviously.

Hopefully the GM put a clause in there that would void the contract if he gets busted for PEDs again.
I'm sure there are a few Giant fans who frequented AT&T park who'd be willing to sell their Melk Man costumes.

I think Melky has learned his lesson, if not, he's the biggest idiot on the planet.

No need for contracts though, he gets caught, it's a year suspension, and the team isn't legally obligated to pay, in fact, it legally obligated NOT to pay.

A couple of years ago I rented the place out for a few days. They let you do pretty much everything, except I couldnt open the roof. Considering we had speakers hanging from the roof, that was probably a good idea to leave it alone.

I believe they use standard stuff now, though I could be wrong. Would have been changed for 2011 season.

So when's your next concert tour anyway? That last one was great. Loved your versions of "Honky Tonk Women" and "Moon River."

Melky finalized as well. Looks like they got their manager as well. John Gibbons.

I was surprised they brought back Gibbons. I would have liked to see Jim Tracy
