Atlanta only ever won one championship, and by extension so did Chipper Jones & Bobby Cox with the Braves...

Sure they did have all those pennants and division titles... but could never get over the hump but that one time...

Yeah, this sure is surprising, if this deal gets done...

There's been a lot of buzz about the Jays in Toronto since that first mega deal... even more so now!

The AL East is going to be crazy next year, every single team a contender.

I read this great article yesterday about the changing landscape of baseball this season. Can't wait for opening day 2013.

Will be even better once they finish contract talks with Swisher.

I don't see the Jays going for Swisher... I think he's had his best moments already...

I bet he'll sign with the Indians or Mariners. Orioles in a long shot.

I'm surprised that the Orioles have basically stood idle, after their nice run last year...

They won so many 1-run games and extra inning games, how do the expect to repeat that? I see the Orioles coming down to earth next year.

This is why the METS will never be a contender....
Anytime they have a good player or a potentially good player, they either trade them away or let them walk.
It wouldn't be so bad if they got something in the trade or signed a great player to replace them, but neither happens.

They got Toronto's 1st and 3rd best prospect, the 1st being considered the 11th best prospect in all of baseball.

Considering the situation the METS rotation is presently in, I would have preferred to have a known winning pitcher on staff as opposed to a potential player. Santana may or may not ever return to the pitcher he was, and the rest of the rotation is a big question mark at this point.

Toronto let these guys go because they have no idea when, if ever, they will be ready for the big leagues...

And lets not forget past history with the Mets, how many people have they traded away who had great careers and the people they got to replace them were more a detriment to the team rather than a bonus....
